Equity Media’s Retro Television Network is coming to Central Pennsylvania.
The tiny network’s affiliate will be Johnstown’s WJAC-TV (6), which will begin distributing the network’s lineup of vintage dramas and sitcoms early next year on one of its digital channels.
Digital TV owners using indoor or outdoor antennas in Pittsburgh can already watch RTN on one of the streams of WJAC’s sister station, WPXI-TV (11). It can also be seen on Comcast Digital Channel 207 in much of Pittsburgh.
“RTN has generated lots of positive feedback to our station, so it makes all the sense in the world to expand this franchise,” Mark Barash, program director of WPXI and WJAC, in a prepared statement. “Once word of RTN gets out in the Johnstown, Altoona, and State College market, I think the viewers will respond as they have in Pittsburgh.”
