I see this in the "Ask Fox Cities HD" area, but I thought I would add my two cents.
I emailed WBAY about 2 months ago about this subject. They told me they were waiting for the needed equipment from the RTN people and that as soon as they could get it and install it they would broadcast. I was told that there would be commercials or some type of post that would let us know when it was up and running.
I am very interested in this channel also. I grew up on many of the shows shown on RTN and without cable or dish in our home, this would be like having Nick at Night.
