Antenna TV will offer a combination of movies and classic television shows including: “Three’s Company,” “All in the Family,” “Sanford and Son,” “Benny Hill,” “Maude,” “The Nanny” and “Married with Children.” Even older classic series will air overnight, including: “Dennis the Menace,” “The Donna Reed Show” and “The Three Stooges.”
Tribune plans to air Antenna TV as a digital multicast on its own stations. It will be offered for national distribution to non-Tribune stations in other markets.
“Tribune is committed to making full use of our bandwidth to offer viewers a broad spectrum of programming. Earlier this year Tribune expanded its relationship with MGM to launch THIS TV, a digital channel of classic movies, in additional markets. The addition of Antenna TV offers a strong compliment to THIS TV and to our stations’ existing programming,” said Sean Compton, President of Programming for Tribune Broadcasting.
