TrueReal Network Going Away

- Posted March 10th, 2023 at 3:47pm
I just found out that the TrueReal Network is going away (sort of). They will be folding the programming in with the DefyTV network. When this happens, they will lease the channel, WNPX 28.6, out to JewelryTV network. This is going to happen on March 27th, the same day that Decades will be rebranded as Catchy Comedy. I am providing links to both articles below. Until more news breaks, that's all for now.

We have way too many crime channels. But I know my mother will miss Decades going away. She watches Dick Cavett.

This was probably a good move for E.W. Scripps to do combining Defy and True Real but having Jewerly TV on the replacement channel is just another useless channel that exists. I seen that Decades was changing before but it was being talked about in the free satellite forums like on C-band.

My wife isn't happy but said she will wait to really be upset after the change and see if any of her shows on True Real go away. She loves the Hauntings and Hoarders the most but watches a lot of others as well. I hope a lot of what she likes stays on Defy, because as they say happy wife happy life.

Things happen. True Real going away was because of the money not being there for that channel.
