Greetings again,

I used to watch this on satelite until iits removal from the satlite my dish is pointed at.  It is/was a good channel almost entirely of older tv shows from the 50's through the 1980's.  I have heard it might be on one of the buffalo or rochester stations as a subchannel now that american tv is all digital.  Does anyone know who in buffalo or rochestor carries it.  I do have a clear shot across lake ontario but its somewhat dubious if a good roofmount yagi-uda will capture enough signal to even make it viewable.

     I know that in the Los Angeles area there is a local channel that continually shows retro t.v. shows, like Mission: Impossible and Mannix.

I have found it on a free to air satelite (not the bootleg dish network or bell) but with my luck its on a C-band transponder which I cant recieve as it is low power requiring a rather large dish (10 feet) and c band LNB both of which I dont have.

As an update to this old topic I've found RTN again. At least for those of us in broadcast range of  Buffalo NY. That is of course a dtv reciever. A friend who ditched his bell tv subscription and now uses a roof mount antenna can pickup rochester, buffalo, toronto, even hamilton & ottawa quite well.  RTN is now carried on WGRZ's digital transmitter, if I remember correct 2-1 and 2-2 are WGRZ's main channel in SD & HD, while 2-3 or 2-4 is RTN which was SD only last time I saw.

Retro TV is channel 2-3 for me, and it comes in great.  If you can get that one, then you should also be able to get 49-2, which broadcasts music videos.  Often, these videos are of the retro variety.
