Nexstar Media is launching a new OTA network, Rewind TV, with a lineup of 80s and 90s sitcoms. The channel is set to launch on September 1 and will be available in 50 million households across the country.
Nexstar also owns Antenna TV, a channel dedicated to classic TV from the 60s and 70s. The new channel will jump ahead to the next decade with shows including The Drew Carey Show, Murphy Brown, Growing Pains, Wings, Sabrina, The Teenage Witch, Who’s the Boss and Family Ties.
“This year marks Antenna TV’s 10-year anniversary, and it continues growing and finding new audiences,” said Sean Compton, president of Nexstar’s networks division. “To complement Antenna TV’s strong following with Baby Boomers, we created Rewind TV to give Gen X viewers a network dedicated to their own nostalgic comedy classics.”
