WVUE Adding Retro TV In The Big Easy

Louisiana Media Co.’s Fox affiliate WVUE New Orleans (DMA 51), will offer Retro Television Network’s programming lineup of classic TV shows on a digital subchannel.

“We are optimistic about the New Orleans market’s recovery, and affiliating with Retro TV promises to bring more viewers more choices seven days a week,” said Joe Cook, president-GM of Louisiana Media Co. “As demand increases from local advertisers who are also optimistic, we will have more to offer, in addition to our primary channel and website. It seems young viewers are fascinated with these older, timeless programs that offer them a glimpse into life before new technology.”

RTV is a television network that provides each affiliate a customized feed with classic hit shows, in addition to local programming including news, weather and sports.

I can’t find the RTV subchannel anywhere on Ch. 8. Can someone tell me when it’s supposed to debut?
