    Ah but some do for example E* carries WAWS's sub channel for RTN in Jacksonville Fl. They also carry WSFL's sub channel in Miami.

    WHDT the RTN in Miami is not a sub channel. In fact it was the first all digital televison station in the US. It began broadcasting HDTV in 2001. It was an Independent station till it became affiliated with RTN in 2010.

    Come on! The Captain and Tennille Variety Hour was no where near as bad the Brady Bunch Variety Hour or possibly Shields and Yarnell

    Actually Todd & Buzz got jobs in each new town they rolled into. Nowadays they'd have to be driving their Corvette through China or India to achieve that.

    "Oh ya, that got shipped out to Bangalore last week."

    There is a whole slew of 1950s -1960s TV shows that will never be shown because someone once made a decision to clear out a warehouse and sent the only copies off to the dump. I had seen a list a couple of decades ago, but don't remember any of them.

    A bit off topic but WRAL out of Raleigh NC, a CBS affilate, began broadcasting a HDTV signal in 1999. In 1996, WRAL-TV filed the first application in the nation for a license to operate a high-definition television station. On June 19, the FCC granted WRAL-TV the first experimental HDTV license in the country. Complete story/history at http://www.wral.com/wral-tv/story/1069461. Feel a little proud as I lived in the Raleigh at the time all this was going on and was able to experience the first NFL game broadcast in HD.

    Even though it's way before my time, I can remember watching old Jhonny Quest re-runs. I LOVED that show. More recently there's a spoof/spinoff show on AdltSwm called The Venture Bros. which definitely scratches that itch. Great character development.

    We might be thinking of different events, but I know NBC went thru this at one point. A lot of good stuff was dumped, including many classic Johnny Carson episodes. Really, really stupid move.

    There are many, many great shows listed in this thread. I'd love to see rotations of many of them. :)

    Cheers,
    Tom

    In November of 1998, I installed two test reception antennas for Microsoft to support two of their test reception locations of the first broadcast digital something-or-other. I'm not sure what it was the first of, but it was a special on Andrew Lloyd Webber. I think it was transmitted on channel 35, and I think it was coming from WRC's tower at American University.

    Microsoft was piggybacking some non-video data stream, and they were apparently successful at receiving and processsing it at the Rockville, Maryland reception site but not at the Columbia, Maryland one.
