Back when they were K31GL, they had Jimmy Swaggart's SBN on 31.1 and HOT TV (History Of Television TV
) on 31.2 and 31.3 (why both? no one knows). 31.4 jumped around a bit; originally it was Retro, then they moved to KVFW/38, so it became AMGTV for a while. KVFW/38 also carried Rev'n, a network dedicated to hot rods, motor sports, and the like.
I'd like to get HOT TV and Retro back, but it may be too late. K31GL was off the air for a very long time, and KVFW was a terrible station that was off the air most of the time even when it was supposed to be operating; so if those diginets are even still around, they may be unwilling to give DFW LPTV another chance.
K25FW just had HSN and nothing else. Big waste of bandwidth. (They could have at least aired it in HD!) I'm pretty sure K31MU was religious, but it was way SW of the metroplex and I never received it myself.
At this point, I'm guessing that K07AAD may be trying to fill in for K31MU, thus explaining them carrying 3ABN. Don't know if they're vying to get back K31GL's HOT TV (right now it's just 3ABN and infomercials, at least according to RabbitEars; I can't receive them in east Dallas).
