The *.3 Switcheroo is Coming! Be Prepared!

- Posted March 23rd, 2015 at 10:56pm
Yes, you heard me right. Let me tell you what I have learned and then I will explain myself. I e-mailed the owner of WRTN to see what is going to happen to 6.3 after Cozi TV has gone to 4.3. Also, I asked about if WRTN will ever change to channel 17 as well. Well, I am posting the e-mail below....

"Yes, looks like Cozi is going to WSMV and we are going with ThisTV. With the FCC trying to take away more UHF TV channels, I decided it was best to stay on 7."

First, I did not expect that ThisTV would be going anywhere. Second, this is what I meant by ".3 Switcheroo". First, Cozi TV moves from WRTN 6.3 to WSMV 4.3, then ThisTV moves from WTVF 5.3 to 6.3. I am guessing that means, just speculating here, because WTVF is owned by Scripps that that will open the door for Laff network to air on 5.3. Exactly when all this will happen, I have no answer for that yet. That is all I have for you right now. If you would like to comment, please do so. I would like to hear what your thoughts are on this.

Thanks for the info NashDigie! I'm glad This TV is staying in Nashville on 6.3. I get the 6.x channels very well, and I love Stargate SG-1 & The Outer Limits! (I never watched SG-1 when it was on SciFi Channel, now called SyFy Channel.) The moves for MeTV and CoziTV are great! I still would like to be able to get Heros & Icons and Decades, but I don't expect WJDE will ever apply to increase transmitter power.

All of this sounds good to me. I only wish 6.3 had went to Antenna TV instead of This TV. I haven't watched anything on This TV in a couple of years. I really like Heros & Icons and will be glad when it's back on WJDE. Also I think a move of antenna to Whites Creek would help them more than a power increase. I get 31 and 42 at the same signal strength even though 42 has 3 times the power.
