WPAN Is Latest Station To Get Cozi

The Mobile, Ala.-Pensacola, Fla., indie is offering the NBC Owned Television Stations network that features classic TV programming.

Independent WPAN Mobile, Ala.-Pensacola, Fla. (DMA 60), announced today that it has become a Cozi affiliate.

WPAN began airing the Cozi multicast network with a soft launch two weeks ago. “The reception in the market has been fantastic to the Cozi programming”  said WPAN’s Neal Ardman. “Cozi provides proven programming the viewers can really relate to on a very organic level.”

According to Ardman WPAN will make the switch to HD within the next few weeks as well. Ardman’s partner in the station, Ricardo Dias, said: “Upcom will provide the needed equipment and expertise to WPAN for the HD conversion.” Upcom Technologies is a San Jose, Calif.-based manufacturer of equipment for HD uplink, downlink, transmitters and all things transmission related.

Cozi, which was launced last year by the NBC Owned Television Stations group, programs a mix of classic TV shows like The Six Million Dollar Man and Magnum P.I., original network programs and local programs supplied by the stations. Cozi affiliates may preempt up to 16 hours a week of network programming for local sports and news.
