I do wonder if Nexstar will continue the old CW Plus feed/service - if that still exists.

I wonder how much of CW's reportedly extravagant programming spend went towards licensing the syndicated content that runs on there.

 

I suppose there's nothing stopping Nexstar from blowing up those deals and simulcasting Antenna TV or Rewind TV in place of that content.

I'd say it depends on the station. "PIX 11" and "KTLA 5" work better than "The CW 11" and "The CW 5" because those stations were much more established independent of the network. The same would be true of WGN should it regain the affiliation. But it mid-tier or low-tier markets where the affiliate never had an identity outside of their affiliation? Probably not.

 

Of course, it's entirely possible that Nexstar could up and change the network's name... 😏

 

mre29 is right. One word describes Nexstar’s big three via Tribune...HERITAGE.

And I agree w/ TheRolyPoly, said big three (and others?) should keep their non-network brands and not have “CW” or whatever it will become overpower them.

WPIX tried CW11 it felt weird WB11 even sounded better even though the PIX brand hasn’t been around since 2007-08.
