Plus where are there transmitters?
Plus how much power are they transmitting?
Probably 99.9% of the people OTA will never see this signal.
KVNV Middletown Township will transmit over VHF Channel 3 from 4 Times Square, Manhattan, NY. with an effective radiated power (ERP) of 7.09 kilowatts.
The station's contour is predicted to serve 21,378,522 persons. It will completely encompass and provide direct line-of-sight service to its city of license Middletown Township, New Jersey.

Those networks will likely be on the wrong end of an eviction notice from their channel 3 allocations shortly after PMCM TV, LLC. signs-on in Manhattan. Accordingly, they will be displaced to another channel allocation. For anyone who doubts this, you need only look at what happened when the same owners signed-on in the Philadelphia, PA. market.
KJWP Wilmington, VHF Channel 2, is the sister station to KVNV Middletown Township, VHF Channel 3. Both stations have traveled over 2,000 miles eastward, courtesy of 47 U.S.C. § 331(a), known commonly as a section of the Communications Act. Both stations will be affiliates of the Me-TV Network (KJWP is already on the air). KJWP elected must-carry status on MSTV providers in Central New Jersey, and this is what happened:Some Jersey Cablevision Customers Could Lose CBS2ROBBINSVILLE: Cablevision will maintain WCBS
In the NYC market, the Channel 3 allocation is coveted. It is sandwiched between WCBS-TV (ironic, given the Central NJ displacement situation) and WNBC. From a programming perspective, Me-TV is generally programmed to a somewhat mature audience. CBS, similarly, is generally programmed to that same audience. The CBS network lineup is presently performing very well, therefore, having a close proximity to a high-performer is a geographic positive.
