    I’ve not yet picked up WAX. Please share some examples of the Retro-TV programming they have.
    One thing I’ll say is that no matter what it is, it’s better then having multiple stations running the same shows. I wish Antenna TV and MeTV would run more obscure things in overnights. I really want to see “Oh, Those Bells” starring the Wiere Brothers, a show that lasted less then a season, but the descriptions of it I’ve read tell me that I might love it.

    “Highway to Heaven”, the old 60s/70s soap “The Doctors” (not to be confused with the Dr. Phil spinoff), 80s/90s stuff like “The New Tarzan” and “The New Zorro”, recent Canadian stuff like “Da Vinci’s Inquest” and “Cold Squad”, and grade Z movies.

    They do have the original “Dr. Who”, so that’s one plus.

    W35AX has been showing almost a 24/7 infomercial about flipping houses with Scott and Amy… so if you like infomercials, then you’d like watching W35AX/W16DO. Apparently Scott any Amy are coming to Cleveland and want to teach you how to make a fortune by flipping houses, and it doesn’t cost anything to see them explain this. Heck, I even saw this infomercial during prime time.

    Does anyone see Channel 16 changing to a This TV affiliate? Also, would they add the Luken diginets possibly? On another forum, someone mentioned getting a 16.3 I can’t get it, I wonder what it is?

    Looks like WAOH/W16DO is either temporarily airing youtoo america or they have dropped retro tv, it does seem they are airing it in 16×9 or they are squishing it to 4×3, the lines in the channel still remain

    They were running Retro this morning, and at 4:3. Methinks maybe some gremlins got in the system, because it’s business as usual now.

    Saw the new digital station for the first time this weekend. Although reception is vastly improved over snowy anaolog picture, the picture quality is awful.

    Looks like W35AX is now fully W16DO all applications in W35AX’s application query now list it as W16DO

    So is channel 35 available now for someone who might want to move their digital signal off of VHF, such as WOIO or WJW?

    No the FCC has frozen channel switches, if the FCC would approve WJW’s switch to 31 that would be the only channel allowed to move

    There was an article on Record-Courier’s site on March 31 I do not know what it had said other than they converted to digital,
    I do not have a subscription but maybe it is possible that future plans for the station may have been revealed in the article,
    If someone read the article or has a subscription maybe they could give everyone an idea if future plans were revealed

    here is the link to the article

    Surprised no one got this yet.

    16/29 gets Youtoo from its long-time secondary affiliation with America One. The two apparently merged sometime last year.
