Excited to watch World War II in HD in beautiful compressed standard definition 480i. 😂

 

On a more serious note, glad that History's archive is finding a good broadcast home. As A+E goes even more into reality, these libraries seriously need to be exploited more and air somewhere rather than being stuck in the late night hours.

Announcing the channel is fine, but we're not going to be speculating about what stations will carry it. Please.

Sorry, I forgot all about the Speculatron thread, I just wanted to provide something of my own in addition to posting a link to, & quoting, the site. Thanks for the correction anyway.

Yeah, that's going to be a drawback. I wonder if their affiliates will be able to make arrangements with local cable systems to provide HD feeds.

You act as if cable and broadcast industries have a close and positive relationship, not one based on liquidating the consumer's assets for retransmission fees.

Eh...there's already a diginet like this in QUEST. I don't see the demand for this but I guess that's one more diginet for cordcutters to watch 🤷‍♂️

 

I hope you also don't see the demand for the dozens of diginets that re-air old sitcoms, dramas, and movies. MeTV, AntennaTV, Cozi, Retro TV, Decades, GetTV, Movies!, This TV, etc.

 

I don't have a Tegna-owned station in my area, so I can't get Quest. I do, however, have two Hearst-owned stations, so Xfinity gives us two MeTVs, right next to each other.

Quest is more of History's current content direction like "Ax Men", "Ice Road Truckers" and "Shipping Wars", while Story seems to intend to draw from the 1995-05 library more before A&E decided to go all-in on reality. At least with Weigel, they seem to prefer to build networks which draw from niche and broad interests and a solid scheduling strategy, and not just take libraries without real theming.
