and Stadium are both owned by Sinclair, so they (along with Charge and Comet) aren't leaving WRGB or WCWN anytime soon. (They also have widespread carriage in major markets on stations Sinclair doesn't own)
Pursuit hasn't made any new deals for OTA carriage in years, their remaining 3 OTA affiliates
are grandfathered or special case scenarios that don't apply to the Albany DMA. (i.e. 3rd party non-profit translator associations operating in unserved areas, so they carry some cable channels in addition to rebroadcasting local stations)
Classic Arts Showcase only has 3 full time OTA affiliates
, the chances of seeing them OTA in Albany are slim to none unless a non-com channel wants to pick them up as overnight filler.
The currently silent W47CM Glens Falls is owned by Luken, maybe they'll pick up some of their subchannel nets like Family and Action when they return to air as W32FC-D
. But because of how tight spaced it is with other LPTV stations, including co-channel WUCB-LD in Cobleskill and W44CT-D in Albany when it returns to air as W32FL-D, it's going to have a very small coverage area
Do you even know what DRTV is? It's an infomercial network where they revenue share with the affiliates for carriage. If you care that much about having a channel like that, you can already get nearly the same set of infomercials on 55.4 Ion Shop.
On a side note for Western MA viewers, WRGB has been granted a construction permit to move their Potter Mountain repeater to RF 5
after it was displaced from RF 19 by WYPX.
