As it marks one year on the air in January, Antenna TV, Tribune Broadcasting’s digital multicast channel, is adding seven new affiliates. That will take the network to 59 television stations across the country.
Last January, Antenna TV made its debut with The Three Stooges. On January 1, 2012 Antenna TV will air a Three Stooges Marathon from 8:00 am ET to Midnight to commemorate the anniversary.
In the first year on air, Antenna TV has cleared 57% of the country with affiliation agreements covering eight of top 10 US markets and 19 of top 25 markets.
This January, Antenna TV will add additional affiliates including: Atlanta (WATL-Gannett,) Las Vegas (KSNV-Intermountain West,) Buffalo (WGRZ-Gannett,) Lexington (WTVQ – Morris,) Chattanooga (WRCB- Sarkes Tarzian,) Ft. Wayne (WANE – LIN,) and Idaho Falls (KPVI- Intermountain West.) These new affiliates will increase Antenna TV’s reach to 59 markets across the US covering 57% of TV households.
“The response to Antenna TV from viewers and stations has been overwhelming, we are excited to continue to grow and expand the network in the coming year,” said Sean Compton, President of Programming for Tribune Broadcasting.
