The diginet of classic TV shows will debut tomorrow on Multicultural Broadcasting’s indie in the Los Angeles market, boosting RTV’s U.S. clearance to 80%.
Retro TV announced today that it will retrofit KHIZ Los Angeles starting tomorrow, June 12.
The station, part of Multicultural Broadcasting’s group, will begin airing the Retro TV lineup of classic TV shows on its digital subchannel, as well as several hours a day on its primary channel.
The deal is the latest in a number of major-market clearances for the network formerly known as Retro Television Network or RTN. RTV went live three weeks ago on Multicultural’s WMFP Boston and last week announced a deal to bring Retro TV to New York on Multichltural’s WSAH.
Retro TV celebrates four years on the air this July 1 and now reports 80 percent U.S. coverage.
Retro TV’s Neal Ardman said: “We are thrilled with our growth these last few months. What better market to launch concurrent with the digital switch then Los Angeles. Everyone at Multicultural has been a pleasure to work with and we look forward to a long prosperous relationship.”
Retro TV’s lineup includes Adam 12, Leave it to Beaver, Night Gallery and rarely seen shows like Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew and Voyagers. Retro TV now provides both custom local feeds for its affiliates or a national feed at the station’s choice.
