    Took your advice and tried it last night...

    Love it!!!

    I think this is the future of TV. Over 100 channels playing in a no cost, ad-supported format. With Viacom's deep library, new partnerships and inclusion of hugely varied channels, I think they could have the market cornered before the public knows there is a market.

    I agree! Saw this today, it might interest you. It speaks to your prediction.

    KOCB-HD 34 added a new subchannel (34.4) carrying the new CBS-owned Dabl network at the end of October. Frustratingly, this additional channel forced station owner Sinclair to downconvert subchannels 34.2 (TBD) and 34.3 (Comet) from a widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio to anamorphic 4:3. I'm a relatively frequent Comet viewer so this is a less than pleasant change, but it looks like leasing agreements with CBS for The CW forced Sinclair to take on Dabl and forced their hand on the aspect ratio change.

    Interesting. Dabl is currently on 4.4

    Cozi TV is now on over the air channel 43-4. Combine that with Dragnet and Adam-12 joining MeTV, and I am in hog heaven

    As more networks and sub channels are added to Over-The-Air networks, just curious to see how many channels everyone is getting with their scans?

    We are in NWOKC by Quail Springs Mall and pull in 50 channels now with our antenna ranging from the main networks (KFOR,KOCO,KWTV, KOKH) to the obscure channels that are mainly shopping and infomercials.

    I'm pulling in close to 60 in Moore now with the few recent additions.... I really only watch GRIT though... Occasionally I'll go to CHARGE, ME-TV (On the rare occasion I'm home on a Saturday night I'll catch Svengoolie) or ANTENNA-TV but it's rare.

    Just wondering if the Thunder games are on any of those free channels? I admit that I don't watch much OTA tv anymore but might start cutting the cord soon. I have Dish Netork and for some reason they don't have the Thunder games any longer so I am also on Youtube TV. Going to have to cut back soon.

    Other than catching the occasional NBA on ABC with a Thunder match-up, no, you don't get Thunder games on Over the Air.

    Sling TV was a good value option for streaming Thunder games with TNT and FSOK in the Sling blue package, but I think Sling dropped their Fox Sport Regionals when those were sold off from Fox Sports.

    For those that remember, during the Thunder's first season, KSBI was the local carrier of Thunder games and branded themselves as Thunder TV. It would be nice if a local over-the-air option was still available for most Thunder games. It's hard to justify $40-$50 for one channel with live sports when nearly everything else offered on the cable streaming packages can be viewed on demand.

    I agree that it would be nice if one of the local channels would carry the games and it would also skyrocket their channel ratings IMO. Not sure exactly how that works. I assume the local station would have to purchase the rights from the Fox affiliate and not directly from the Thunder.

    foxsportsOK (FSOK) (which is now owned by sinclear and will be rebranded soon) has all the local rights to the thunder games and they do not have the right to resell them

    I always thought a local OTA station needs to get local area rights for all OKC and maybe Tulsa sports teams. I'm talking Thunder, OKC Blue, OKC Energy FC, OKC Dodgers, Tulsa Drillers, Tulsa Oilers, then adding High School sports where there are gaps in programming. I would have the channel on at all times.

    all of those would seem to be possible except for the thunder

    Since Sinclair owns Stadium network, and it is primarily an OTA and streaming model, the opportunity for cross-platform integration makes the idea of having the local sports on one channel (or group) a possibility.

    Thought I read somewhere, that the network Quest is now on in OKC on KBZC 42.

    The Energy were on a News 9 alternate channel back in 2017 I think and it was great, no idea why that deal stopped.
