Laff TV Now Launching Sept. 21st

- Posted August 6th, 2015 at 6:35pm
I'm sorry I didn't post this sooner, but I e-mailed and found out why Laff did not launch this past Saturday. In the e-mail, he said that they had some contractual issues, and because of that, they will now launch Laff TV on September 21st. So, I am guessing that the owner of WRTN will not do anything until he can put ThisTV on his channel so that he can do all the channel shuffling in one fell swoop. I have heard something of MeTV coming to WKRN, but I have no idea how solid the information is. What I have heard is that it will be coming in the fall, but would it be something if MeTV, Laff, Antenna TV, and The Works would all start broadcasting in Nashville on the same day.

Thanks for the update. It will be great to see these plans come together. I'm sure there are a lot of hoops to jump through.

I'm spending the next few weeks in the Sarasota/Bradenton Florida area. When all is said and done in Nashville I hope we're as good as they are with OTA programming. They have: - ME-TV - This-TV - Bounce - Get-TV - Decades - Cozi - Movies! - Grit - Escape - Laff - 7 PBS channels - All national networks No need for cable here....

For an official reference, the MeTV website lists it as coming to 2.3 (date TBD) as it has for a while now. MeTV Nashville Affiliate page However, as mentioned in more recent news, the merger between the owners of WKRN and WSMV may change this plan.

Thanks for helping keep us informed on upcoming TV events!
