Chip,
Being I messed up and had to manually set my DVR to record The Yule Log from Antenna TV, I missed the first hour, but that's OK.  I still was able to DVR WPIX, which came out perfectly

So, my questions are as follows:

Do you know it there will be a memo to all Antenna TV Affiliate not to insert any local programming or commercials into the program? I can't remember for sure if it was last Christmas, or Christmas 2013 that they did this being I didn't really watch last years broadcast due to my having to manually programming my DVR because it only showed "Digital Broadcast" so I couldn't specifically choose The Yule Log and had to create a start time, end time and even choose the channel.  But now, Dish Network is recognizing the information from our local affiliate, and it appears in the guide, so this year, I will be able to DVR it.

Secondly, I can't say if there was any audio glitches last year from Antenna TV so I hope they have everything fixed.

Thirdly, Antenna TV has gone the way of TVLand and other channels, where they start the next program with a split screen, and the credits from the previous program are on the left side of the screen and a little angled away from the screen, so they can start the next program without a commercial in between,  But in doing this, they cut out the audio from the ending of the previous program.  I would hope that they don't do this with The Yule Log.

This is really annoying because Antenna TV is bringing back some really great shows from that maybe didn't last 1 or 2 seasons, but growing up I loved the, and now that they are broadcasting them, they have to ruin it by doing the split screen at the end of the program.

Susan,

I addressed the commercial situation regarding the Antenna TV affiliates when you asked me about it almost exactly a year ago on October 6, 2014. Click here and scroll down to your post of October 6, 2014 and my subsequent reply.

Thank you Chip,
Do you have any idea though if they will be doing the split screen at the end of the broadcast?  That would completely ruin the program.

This is what I meant about the split screen.  Mister Ed was on this morning and followed by Father Knows best, and at the end of Mister Ed, they started Father Knows Best and the audio from Mister Ed was silent and the opening theme of Father Knows Best was playing.

This is what Antenna TV is doing with their programming

There are no credits at the end of the program, so there won't be any overlap.

I truly hope there will be some affiliate station down here in Fort Myers, Florida.  I've missed the Yule Log so much since it went off the air.
God, I miss New York...

Thanks,
Bob

Chip,
I realize that there aren't any credits at the end of The Yule Log, but the way Antenna TV has been doing their change from one program to the next, they always do the split screen, and my concern is that they will do this on the last song while the camera is panning out and then start the next program in the split screen so it really isn't the full broadcast.

I have mentioned this on Antenna TV's Facebook page, and a few people have also expressed concern about them doing this to all of the Classic TV programs.  Antenna TV has not responded to what I had posted either.

I hope they don't mess up The Yule Log this year because where I live, they did some renovations, and now my satellite dish isn't covered by a balcony from the upstairs apartment, which helped keep most of the snow or rain off my dish, so I wouldn't lose signal, but now the dish is fully exposed to the weather, and if we happen to get some snow on Christmas Day, then I may not be able to get the WPIX broadcast without interruption from signal.  Antenna TV is Over The Air, and I am able to DVR those channels too even it the dish is covered with snow.

Bob
:

Currently, the Antenna TV affiliates in Florida are Jacksonville, Orlando, Tampa and Miami. Hopefully, a station in Fort Meyers will pick up the network in the near future.



Susan
:

I am fully aware of the split screen policy that Antenna TV has adopted when they transition from one program to another. However, all those programs all have one thing in common: screen credits at the end.

So again, let me reiterate...

Yule Log: No credits > Split screen: Nada.

Thank you for clarifying this Chip,
I would really hate not to get a full version of the broadcast of The Yule Log, I do have every year from at least 2002 or 2003, and I believe all but 1 is from WPIX's broadcast, then a few from earlier years on VHS tapes.

Quick question, if I may:


WGN looks like it's down here in Fort Myers (Comcast / XFinity) on (amusingly) Channel 11.  I'm not sure how this works - Just because we have WGN down here, does it necessarily mean that we will see the Yule Log, or is it only certain areas that get WGN will see it.  (i.e. just because you have WGN doesn't mean that the Yule Log will broadcast on that channel in your area).


Thanks,

Bob

Bob,

Please be aware that there are two WGN stations: there is the local WGN Channel 9 (WGN-9) in Chicago; and the sister national cable station WGN America (formerly known as Superstation WGN). Currently, the Yule Log is broadcast only on the local WGN-9 in Chicago.

The Yule Log used to air on WGN America as well. However, beginning in 2012, Sean Compton (President of Strategic Programming) moved the program to his new Antenna TV network.

Coincidentally enough, I had made the formal announcement here on the message board exactly five years ago today on November 4, 2010 (click here).

This really stinks.  Ok, I'm off to WGN's site to beg for the yule log.

Thank you so much for replying and explaining. :)

Follow-up to above message:

Ok, not that I think that my requests will actually be read...
I just contacted both Antenna TV (to ask if they plan on having an affiliate down here in Fort Myers), and WGN America (to ask, nay, BEG for them to air the Yule Log again). :-)

I'll let you know what they say, if they answer me.

Thank you again,
Bob

I appreciate your disappointment, Bob; but unfortunately, as I had said in my November 2010 announcement post
(click here), Sean cannot air the Yule Log on WGN America anymore as it is too much a financial sacrifice to the network to air the 4-hour commercial-free program. However, to make up for this, Sean pledged to me to move the Yule Log to his new Antenna TV network and make it the permanent new home for the program's national television coverage.

Ah, got it.  Sorry for the confusion. :(


Well, hopefully some day they will have an affiliate here. :)

Thank you again,

Steve,
Have you tried rescanning your local OTA Digital Channels?  I found that recently, we have been getting about 8 more channels from our local TV Stations.  We even get a NPR Radio Station audio with 2 SAP channels, so we can listen to NPR or another broadcast on the same channel.  We also now receive GetTV and Grit TV and LAFF among a few other's.  Some are weak and not reliable with an indoor antenna, but we can't have any outdoor antenna's in our housing project.

Maybe rescanning will pick up something for you, especially if you have an outdoor antenna.  I know some are capable of picking up stations at least 150 miles away, but you have to be aiming the antenna towards that particular transmitter, and have a pretty clear line of sight to that tower,

Chip,
I don't have sufficient privileges to start a new thread, but being you created this thread last August, I haven't seen the 2016 schedule yet.  Do you have any updates for the 2016 WPIX Yule Log Broadcast?  And the Antenna TV Broadcast?
