Yet Another New Network is on WKUW 40

- Posted April 12th, 2016 at 9:10pm
Yes, you heard right. There is now a channel 40.5. It is called "The Country Network". It is another country music or music-related network. It has a website at Like the NewsMax website, they, too, allow you to watch a network feed live online. I am now hoping if they put on a channel 40.6, that it will be a really good channel, of course, once I get back to receiving the channel. That is all for right now until more news breaks.

Maybe coincidence, but I used to get 40.1 clear and now it loses signal frequently. Did they lower power per channel by adding the additions?

No, they wouldn't lower power to just add on the new additional channels. I don't think they have lowered the power at all.

I think it's problems with their transmitter. It constantly freezes up here with a signal strength of 85. This happened also when they added Escape. Hopefully they will get it corrected soon.

Is it just me or did channel 40.1 - 40.6 go off the air today (Monday)? I'm getting all other stations. Thanks, Keith

As far as I know, they didn't. In the past few days, they have had problems with some equipment, but they have since fixed that. So, unless someone else can comment, I don't have any new information about it today.
- Posted on May 2nd, 2016 at 6:28pm may be the rain today because I watched both 40.1 and 40.4 for a while this morning but there is no signal now (Monday, 6:30 PM). Not much I can do but wait. thanks again, kp

All Channel 40.x are back up and running. Not sure what the problem was.... kp

Thanks for the update, as I currently cannot receive WKUW channel 40. I will be posting this soon.

The 40's have been in and out this they are still having issues. Also, 40.4 is now the country music channel and NewsMax is gone. Me thinks they are still experimenting with the program line up. Channel 6.7 has audio but no video (not that I watch that channel...just an observation while channel surfing). kp

Thanks for the update. I actually was near Nashville today with my portable dtv and saw all of it. I will be posting all about it shortly.
