WKRP back on local TV

Postby kal » Tue Apr 10, 2018 9:24 am

WKRP, after a long absence (something to do with the onerous music licensing requirements), is back on TV, this time on MeTV out of Bellingham, weeknights at 9:30 pm.

The series began last week, so it's just a week in.

Perhaps some would like to make a post of their favorite lines...

"Hey Big Guy, let's get this show on the road" ... Herb Tarlek
"Oh the humanity..." Les Nessman at the turkey drop remote broadcast
"You are the sales manager, right? Well, there've been no sales." Arthur Carlson as he fires Herb

Thanks for the "tip"...love when MeTV rotates their programs. I wouldn't mind to have a mix of "Golden Girls," "Murder, She Wrote," "Diagnosis Murder," and "JAG".

I'd also love for Hallmark to make its streaming movie service available in Canada so I can watch one of my favourite made-for-TV moviews of all time again - "Cab to Canada"! :)

Cheers,
Doug

Unfortunately, at least in the Vancouver and Victoria markets, MeTV, which carries WKRP, has been off the air for more than 48 hours. Shaw does not seem to have a handle on the problem.

Ah, I haven't checked if it's off the air on Telus Optik TV or not. When I thought about switching back to Shaw, I looked at their pricing and it's still the same price as Telus (maybe $1.00 cheaper for an Internet+TV bundle), with less HD channels. :)

The only one that, potentially, is $10 cheaper is Shaw Direct, the satellite TV operation.

Cheers,

It is for me on Telus: Wonder what's going on?

I checked KVOS earlier on Shaw and it's back on the air again as of noonish (when The Big Valley was on). Had to have been some technical glitch (possibly weather-related) that kept it off that long.
