New Network Coming to Nashville

A new network is coming to Nashville via the Sinclair Broadcast Group, which owns WZTV Fox 17, WUXP MyTV 30, and runs WNAB CW 58. The new network will be called "TBD". The name does stand for "To Be Determined", because it will be mostly comprised of digital content whether it is viral videos, sports, or anything else from online and digital content providers. It will be coming on early next year. Which channel it will be on, I don't know at this moment, but when I do, I will post it here. You can read more at the link below. Until later, that is all I have for you.

I'm wondering if this could possibly go on 58.2. I don't understand why ASN went on 40.3 unless it is leaving 58. I hope this network shows up somewhere anyway.

I wonder why another ad channel was added to the 40 + lineup (40.7). I think we have Plenty of shopping networks. lol

WRTN Changed Their Lineup Again

Here we go again. WRTN has made some changes to their channel lineup. 6.2 is now Jewelry TV not Rev'n, 6.5 is RetroTV again instead of a frozen/blank screen, and 6.7 is the classic movies channel instead of EbruTV. I don't know how long these changes will last, but I am glad that RetroTV is back. I am listing the lineup below channel by channel.

6.1 Daystar
6.2 Jewelry TV
6.3 This TV
6.4 Classic TV Shows
6.5 Retro TV
6.6 Evine Shopping Channel
6.7 Classic Movies Channel

Update on Subchannel Switch

I just saw on Facebook that Heartland already has a home. It will now be shown on WLLC-LD channel 42.4. I don't know about anyone else, but I cannot get this channel at all. So, please can someone comment on this and let me know if it is on or not. So, below is a chart of what has happened over the last couple of days.

WSMV-DT    4.2 - Heartland → Escape
WKUW-LD 40.3 - Escape → ASN
WLLC-LD   42.4 - Biz TV → Heartland

I can confirm 4.2 is now Escape. I can't get a picture or sound on 40.3 but the guide shows Escape as well. As for 42.4 I can't see it at all.

All of these changes are correct. Biz TV seems to be gone from the Nashville market. I don't understand why ASN is on two channels. Maybe 58.2 is going to become something else? Ronnie

The Subchannel Switch

Well, there has been a switch among Nashville subchannels. I previously posted that ASN is on WKUW-LD 40.3. Then, what happened to Escape? Well, it appears they moved to WSMV 4.2. If that is so, then what happened to Heartland? I don't know, but for now, ASN is on both WKUW channel 40 and WNAB channel 58. That is all I have for you right now.

A Change to WKUW-LD Channel 40

I just received word that WKUW-LD channel 40.3 has been changed from the Escape network to the ASN (American Sports Network). I don't know this for myself because I cannot receive this channel, but if it is true, I don't have any idea why they would go with another network that Nashville already has, just like QVC. Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think about this change up. That is all I have for you right now.

NPT 8 is Back on the Air!!!

I just checked and WNPT channel 8 is back on the air. I know this maybe the shortest post, but other than that, that is all I have for you right now.

Npt 8 Update

Just thought I would give you an update on WNPT channel 8. Right now, it is still off the air. The comments below are from Michelle Jones from WNPT. The first one was posted on the WNPT website just yesterday (10/22).

I checked with Mr. Crane and Mr. Baker before posting, but here is an engineering response: NPT’s transmitter tower, like many towers in the U.S., is more than 40 years old and in need of refurbishing. There are only a few crews in the country qualified to do this high-altitute work, and they go from state to state working on towers and antennas and responding to emergencies such as fallen towers, which does happen now and again. The crew working on the NPT tower started by checking all the high-tension guy wires holding the tower up and replacing any corroded parts. Then they started climbing the tower and checking all the joints, replacing rusted and corroded bolts and sections. As they got closer to the top, NPT’s transmitter power output was reduced and finally turned off for the safety of the workers. The next task was to remove the old WKRN analog antenna from the top of the tower, as it was no longer in use. This changes the towers height, which meant that all the lights on the tower had to be moved to comply with FCC & FAA regulations for tower height. Finally, the tower will get a new paint job that will, with any luck, prevent corrosion and keep the NPT tower in good condition for another 40+ years.

The second comment was posted Tuesday 10/18.

We cannot state when our signal will be further available to all our viewers because the length of the maintenance depends on a number of factors beyond our control–one of those being the weather–but we are hopeful we will be back on the air for everyone within 10 days.

That is all I have for you right now.

Are WKRN and WNPT still sharing the dame tower and if so is WKRN operating at reduced power?

by "NashDigie" on 10/23/2016 at 8:24PM   

No, they're not. Only the WKRN old analog antenna was on the same tower as WNPT antenna. In another comment on that page, she said they (WKRN) was on a neighboring tower. So it doesn't have an effect on WKRN.

WNPT channel 8 has been off the air since yesterday morning. They are having tower maintenance done, and they will be off for another week. A link to the story is below. That is all I have for you right now.

Another WRTN Change

Well, there has been another network added to the WRTN lineup. This time it is yet another shopping channel on WRTN 6.6. It is called Evine. You can find out all about it by going to their website at The reason I said "yet another" is because Nashville already has the two major shopping channels - "HSN" and "QVC", and they are being broadcasted twice over the air with HSN on both 28.6 and 31.x while QVC is on 28.5 and 40.x, and an extra QVC on another 40. Also, there is the Liquidation channel on 40.2. So, counting the duplicates and the new network added, that is seven shopping channels on the air in Nashville. In my opinion, enough is enough of these shopping channels. That is all I have for you right now.

Quite agree we have enough shopping channels. On the plus side it wasn't a rebroadcast of one of the others. :-)

by "" on 10/14/2016 at 12:44PM   

It's still nice to see something being broadcast on all 6.x channels. Channel 8.1 and 8.2 are out of order now.... Hope y'all have a great weekend! keith
