WJZY Signs On As Antenna TV Affiliate

Starting next Monday, Capitol Broadcasting's CW affiliate in Charlotte, N.C., will offer the Tribune Broadcasting classic TV diginet on a subchannel. Tribune now claims coverage of more than 50% of the U.S. for the network, thanks mostly to its carriage on 19 Tribune stations.

Capitol Broadcasting’s WJZY Charlotte, N.C., next Monday (July 25) will join the growing lineup of stations airing Antenna TV, Tribune Broadcasting’s classic TV multicast network, Tribune announced today.

“We can’t wait to share Antenna TV with viewers throughout the [Charlotte] region,” said Sean Compton, president of programming for Tribune, “There are fans of classic television everywhere and we love bringing them the shows they want.”

In addition to WJZY’s ch. 46.2, Antenna TV will be available in the Charlotte market on Time Warner Cable’s ch. 147. The station is negotiating with other cable operators and expects to achieve full cable carriage in the market “in the near future,” according to Tribune.

Antenna TV debuted on Jan. 1, 2011 and has expanded coverage to more than 50% of the U.S.

Much of that coverage comes from Tribune’s own stations. Antenna TV airs on 19 Tribune properties, including WPIX New York, KTLA Los Angeles, and WGN Chicago.

WJZY broadcasts The CW on its main channel.
