    Glad to hear it.

    'This TV' also has some old tv series that they show. The Outer Limits, Patty Duke, Mr. Ed, and they recently added Bat Masterson.

    I like getting 'This TV.' It's like a free ota cable channel and they have some cool programming that you won't see anywhere else. Now lets hope the 'Retro television network' gets into more markets too.

    That "Glad to hear it" was for Static and not for you, Jay! LOL

    Think I recently read that 'This TV' was in 60% of the markets already so they should be in yours very soon too.

    They're movin' in fast.

    Where can I get listings for this channel? I like it. They should go HD though!

    TV Listings - Find Local TV Shows and Movie Schedules - Listings Grid | TVGuide.com and edit your location. Not sure if This TV is on their yet, but it's probably your best bet.

    i looked on titan and they still have it listed as weather plus. We had weather plus before but they discontinued it over here. (which shouldn't have been done)

    They should have left weather plus on 7.2 and put THIS on 7.3. After all, digital is about sub channels.

    They'll probably get it on there soon.

    In the meantime go back to Titantv and put in the zip code 45440. Scroll down to channel 19.2 and you'll have the listings for This TV. The listing may not be the exact same in your area since your local channel can preempt them just as 45.2 (also on the list) does here in dayton, but for the most part they should be pretty much accurate.

    Thank you for posting about WHDH 7-2 and titantv [I hadn't heard of titan before].

    I sent an update message to Titan about a week ago and they now carry the correct listings for both whdh dtv-2 and wjar dtv-2.


    Now I can finally find out what movies are coming up on 7-2

    It's on KTLA - 5.2 for me. My kids like this channel quite a bit...guess they better get used to it after we cancel DirecTV.

    They showed all horror movies yesterday for the 13th, twas' nice. 47% strength with no pixelation either.

    They remind me of a HBO/Cinemax/Starz type channel only they have commercials. (so they can get paid for advertisements)

    This TV is here in Los Angeles - channel 56-3

    KDOC here has picked it up. The website is KDOC-TV Endless Classics! Nothing shown for the DTV channels yet. The time slots that are not shown are filled with infomercials. It used to be good, especially with this guy: Wally George

    Their channels:
    56-1 KDOC-HD (non-widescreen shows have black columns added)
    56-2 KDOC-SD (letterboxed version of 56-1)
    56-3 THIS-TV (Online: Movies with commercials, and music video hours paid with $5 cell text messages broadcasted onscreen Offline: Infomercials, as other channels.)

    This-TV started broadcasting OTA in my location. Today when I got home I scanned for new channels and there it was. Sweet Make sure you periodically scan for new channels. You may be pleasantly surprised.

    I like "this" channel. I watch it alot. I'd like to see RTN put on one of our affiliates sub-channels, but, i'm not sure just how many markets have both.

    Dot2 keeps moving their launch date back for one reason or the other. The latest is that they will begin braodcasting sometime in the spring but they may wait until they have confirmed carriage in 30% of US households, which may not be until october.

    You're lucky to have both ThisTV and Retro but rumour has it that Retro may be going under. Hope not because that sounds like a great network.

    I have both THIS and RTN. i don't care for THIS's movies all that much but they do have Patty Duke and Mister Ed in the morning, and that's the first time any network has played those underappreciated classics i so love in a long long time!

    As for Retro going under, it already happened...here at least, for a while you'd tune it and get a 'red screen of death' meaning it was a red background and black letters saying RTN is gone....

    Then it came back. it's no longer local feed so the program guide is way off but hey at least it's back! gotta love the original BSG and Buck Rogers!!!

    Do you mean the local station can no longer preempt Retro's programming? That would be a bonus in my book. I hate how daytons channel 45 preempts ThisTV's programming.
