Do you use an antenna to watch free over-the-air TV? Good news you may have some new channels showing up soon. COMET, CHARGE!, and TBD have announced new deals to expand their OTA coverage.
This expansion brings the total coverage for these channels to nearly 17 million TV households added in 2022, in addition to the networks’ already impressive footprints.
This expansion is thanks to new affiliate agreements with Nexstar, Gray and Entravision in markets in many of the largest DMAs in the country, including San Francisco-Oakland-San Jose, Phoenix (Prescott), San Diego and Hartford – New Haven.
Here are the new markets for each channel:
CHARGE!, which specializes in crime drama and action programming, will add new affiliates in San Francisco-Oakland-San Jose on KRON, Hartford – New Haven on WWAX, Knoxville on WVLT, Colorado Springs on KVSN and San Angelo on KEUS.
COMET, which is the top destination on free television for science fiction and fantasy programming, will add Colorado Springs on KGHB.
TBD, which features real people testing their own limits, moves to the market leading CBS-affiliate in Phoenix (Prescott) on KPHO, and will launch on the powerhouse Univision-affiliate in San Diego on KBNT and in the Texas panhandle DMAs of Lubbock and Midland – Odessa on KZBO.
