Antenna TV gone?

A place to go for those of you who wish to discuss happenings in OH, IN, IL, WI, and Ontario. OSU sucks, by the way.

Wondering if WMNT will bring back "THISTV." THISTV recently changed their channel info for Toledo, once again listing "Buckeye Broadband" Toledo channel 157. Before last week, when I did a Toledo zip code search on THISTV.com it only listed WMNT 48.3 and sometimes WDIV 4.2, depending on which zip code I used. Buckeye Broadband isn't showing THISTV or GET in Toledo, only the main WMNT channel and AntennaTV.
I checked their website too, and they list numbers for both Buckeye and over-the air antennas.

Basically, any TV content streamed over the Internet ("Internet Protocol TeleVision")

I saw This on 48.4 last night. so far 48.2, .3 and .4 are much much cleaner. Still no identifiers on any subchannels.

That's good. Hoping Buckeye will put them back up soon. This had been running some good older movies like "The Birdcage" and "Thelma and Louise."

Are they licensed to be on cable anymore? Remember, WMNT-CA has no local ads. Seems most of the ads are barter on 48.1 or are infomercials from the satellite. Only SOME of the spots are local, as they do not have any master control equipment. "The new management" really is not working on the mechanics, but rather the image alone, ie., the superficial (just like Cumulus). Outspoken folks like me, they really don't want pointing things out. I seriously doubt they paid the license fee to be on cable.

Remember, all FCC rules and copyright laws must still be followed, even though they are low power and religious owned.

If copyright owners are going after bars and churches, rest assured that they will go after WMNT-CA Toledo as well. Everyone is hard up, due to Covid, no matter what side of the aisle you are on.

Also another tought: Has anyone seen anything EAS on there? WMNT-CA is NOT exempt.

WMYD-TV 20 Detroit and it's subchannels are only available on Buckeye Broadband on the Michigan side of the border, namely Bedford township.
Yep, Bedford Township is practically the furthest Buckeye can offer the Detroit channels these days (and I'm about a half mile from the state line).
Just curious. Are you half a mile north of the state line, or half a mile south if it?

Back to the old days... "No Signal" on 48.3 (This Network) this morning. Even the religious owner doesn't pay attention. Yes, WMNT-CA IS THAT BAD.

From my understanding, Cozi was demanding WMNT-CA to do better with it's product. Luckily, you can find Cozi on WZTS 16 on the Roku, for free. However, we don't know if Cozi is licensed to be on Roku. Forwarning, the productions are primitive, compared to the big city of Toledo. You might get frustrated.

Looks like Buckeye Broadband has brought back the other WMNT subchannels.

I want on the Roku box and I cannot find Antenna TV listed as a separate application?

I think what's funny on Buckeye and Comcast (and all the other cable providers) is that they normally have to carry the full bandwidth of the broadcast signal, (which would include all the subchannels) by contract, but they are not obligated to allocate a channel number to any of them except the primary one, unless it's also outlined in the contract.

So all the subchannels are actually there, you just can't access them.

They are not licensed to stream. Too many money hungry hogs after 1965, which ATV carries. They must pay for anything after, including the licensing to broadcast and stream. That's why I think WZTS 16 is potentially illegal.

Not everyone in the coverage area even gets any 48.x channels. If you're not on Buckeye, your cable or dish will not carry it- even when you get it by suburban grade antenna. Ask Lake township and parts of Perrysburg, BG, Waterville, Luna Pier, etc.

Wonder if Buckeye will carry WMNT-anything in BG, as it slowly moves into that city.

GET-TV seems to always have on a 1970 Johnny Cash show, not that it's all bad
