Recent Changes to Nashville TV Airwaves

- Posted May 6th, 2015 at 7:38pm
First, I would like to apologize for not updating as things change. Anyways, here is what has happened in the past week.

WJDE 31.2 and 31.3:
It seems to appear that 31.2 Heroes & Icons had gone to just showing a test pattern, and then, this morning, 31.3 Decades is now just showing a test pattern as well. I don't know if this means anything or not, but Decades still has not officially launched yet. Heroes & Icons has already launched. I am going to try and find out what is happening with that channel (WJDE). I will get back with that once I have news.

Awhile back, I posted that WNPX-LP low-power analog channel 20 had been sold to Word of God Fellowship from the ION Media Group. For a while there, it kept showing ION until yesterday. It was around 1pm that channel 20 was shut down. I don't know if they finally shut the analog channel off to change over to digital, or there was a problem with the broadcasting equipment. I just don't know at this point of time. Also, I found out that Word of God Fellowship actually owns Daystar. So, I wonder if they will take Daystar away from WRTN or not. If they do, that means it will open another channel up for another network to air there. Updated: I just found out through a source that they are indeed changing channel 20 over to digital operations, and when they get it on the air, they will be airing Daystar.

No new diginets:
So far, there has been no changes with the new channel lineup. That means no Cozi TV on WSMV 4.3 and no MeTV on WKRN 2.3. The only change has been on WRTN where the owner replaced Cozi TV with RetroTV that was on 6.2. Then, he replaced RetroTV on 6.2 with Rev'n. Since then, he has received negative feedback about Rev'n. It was said that people were favoring PBJ for a replacement. There has been no other changes done.

That is all the news I have for you right now. Thank you for reading.

Decades is back on 31.3. Still no idea what is going on at 31.2. The station is operated out of Louisville, KY, and it is hard to reach anyone to talk with about Nashville.

Decades came back on this morning but with no sound. The sound came back this afternoon. I don't have any idea about H&I either but miss it. I enjoyed Broken Arrow.

Thank you both for the update. Brentwood OTA, I am going to try myself to get a hold of them. If I get any information, I will post it on the website.
