WKUW 40 is On the Air and More

- Posted November 24th, 2015 at 1:46pm

Yes, WKUW-LD channel 40 is now on the air. Though, it is only showing one channel and it is a Doctor TV affiliate. Their website is I am going to try and contact the owner and see if there will be some subchannels added later. If I hear anything back, I will post it here. (Edit: The reply is posted below.)

Also, I just recently heard that Antenna TV may be moving onto its new channel (WZTV 17.3) as soon as Dec. 3rd. I will try and see if this is true. That is all I have for now. If any other news breaks (digital tv news wise), I will post it here.

Updated 4:35pm: I just heard from the people of DTV America (owners of WKUW-LD channel 40). They said, in the e-mail posted below, that they have plans to add Buzzr, a shopping channel, and female oriented channel like Lifetime. My guess is the last one will probably be the Escape network. There are plans for more. You can read the e-mail below.

"Thanks for noticing our channel is up and running. We are actually planning out several sub-channels right now. While I can’t say for sure how many we will eventually add, we are already planning to add Buzzr TV (old game shows we grew up on), a shopping channel and a female oriented channel (Similar to Lifetime). We are talking to others including a 24/7 news channel. Please keep watching and spread the word about FREE Over the air TV. Happy Thanksgiving. "

I'm looking forward to Buzzr. Now if only channel 2 would add Me TV and let H&I return to channel 31.

When I scanned for new channels, I did not pick up channel 40. Do you know what direction their tower is located? I am in Donelson.

Yes, I do know. They are on the same tower as WNPX 28 and WPGD 50, which is in northern Davidson County near the intersection of I-24 and Old Hickory Blvd. By the way, they are now showing Buzzr TV on 40.1.

I'm sorry, jdax1701. They are currently broadcasting at 15kw. 15kw is the maximum a low power UHF tv station can broadcast.

Thanks for your response. CH 17.3 is now scanning in and reading as ANT TV but no picture as of yet
