Also Decades doesn't want to be on LD or low power station that won't be carried on the local cable networks, so that does limit which channels can carry them. That pretty much leaves 38 WADL and 20 WMYD as the two best options to pick it back up.

At least DABL won't cost me anything! Seemed like if they added a channel on cable the bill used to go up by $10...lol.

Glad I cut the cable TV outta my Comcrap service.

Since I rarely watch the ota channels maybe it’s time I check them once again :-)

Sounds like a nice lineup :-)

Yeah, it's really good, especially if you have an OTA DVR.

Looks like we just got our answer.

This premise is almost exactly like ABC's "zombie diginet" Live Well. Live Well solely thrives off of C-rate shows and largely co-produced O&O productions, but at least DABL has the backing of Martha (whose old show a CBS Television Distribution predecessor distributed, but which her company owns the rights to) and Emeril (making his TV return) to start things off.


My furthest DTV tropo: KDKA Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania at 202 miles for three days in January 2017 and a night in September 2017 with only an Antennas Direct C2V!

Current setup: Antennas Direct C2Max (2018-present)

Yeah, it is very much akin to Live Well. Hopefully it does get some boost thanks to Martha Stewart being on board.

"Zombie diginet", pretty much nailed it right on the head.

Why is LWN still around? It's only on ABC O&Os nowadays! And ABC doesn't have many O&Os, whereas Ion's O&O-exclusive diginets like Ion Life (which has a similar programming genre to LWN) have a lot of O&Os to be on, and have their national feeds on cable in some areas. LWN has none of that. Put it out of its misery already, because Live Well Network, ironically, is not living well.


The only time when it would ever be necessary to be political is if our right to pursue our happiness is taken away. Otherwise, leave politics to politicians!

Brings up a good question.

We know a convicted felon can't own a TV station, but can they get around the law by having a subchannel?

EDIT: Her new show will be on channel 62.55170-054 ☺
