The Auto Channel launches TACH-TV


The Auto Channel, in conjunction with WHDT World Television Service, has launched a new broadcast television network: TACH-TV. TACH-TV features television and video programming produced over the years by The Auto Channel, along with select video content produced by independent producers and studios. The television programming is presented in a traditional linear format but utilizes The Auto Channel’s website,, to provide on-demand, random access to supportive content.

The national broadcast network rollout began 6/15 in Florida and can be seen on WHDT’s family of television station outlets that cover most of Southern Florida, including Miami, Naples, Ft. Lauderdale, Boca Raton, Palm Beach, Jupiter, Stuart, Port St. Lucie, Fort Pierce and Vero Beach. Viewers should check local television listings for channel assignments and detailed program information.

Additional local stations in California, Pennsylvania, Arizona and Massachusetts are expected to be added this summer.

The Auto Channel was founded twenty five years ago, in May 1987, by Bob Gordon and Marc Rauch, president and executive vice president, respectively. Both Gordon and Rauch are multi-award winning producer/directors, each with about a half-century of hands-on media experience.

WHDT World Television Service is owned by founder Dr. Günter Marksteiner, a pioneer in progressive HD broadcasting in the United States. WHDT became the first digital television station in the United States following a ruling by the FCC  that the station could provide primary over-the-air service using only a digital TV signal. WHDT World Television Service currently operates WHDN Boston, WHDT Stuart, WYDT Naples, and WHDT Miami.
