>>Last Updated: 2-1-18

Atlanta TV Changes:

1-22-18: WPBA-TV (30) has re-branded from "PBA 30" to "ATL PBS" most references to the channel number have been removed from the new branding.

1-17-18: WXIA-TV (11) has opened up 11.4 and is currently airing a promo of a new subnet called Quest TV, a new nature/realty channel set to debut at the end of this month. Update (2/1) Quest is now on 11.4.

1-17-18: WATL-TV (36) has finally picked up a new subnet to replace Bounce which moved to WSB-TV (2.2) in the fall after they lost rights to carry Me-TV to an Athens TV station. This TV mostly airs movies and some drama shows will now air on 36.2. This TV had previously aired on low power station WANN-CA (32)

1-16-18: WUVG-TV (34.3) Get TV airing on Univision's 34.3 has reformatted their channel to become yet another channel airing old TV shows this move now makes them the 9th OTA subnet to cater to the 50+ crowd along with, Movies, (5.2) , Buzzr (5.3), Light TV (5.4) , This TV (36.2) , Antenna-TV (36.3) , Cozy-TV (46.2) , Grit (46.3) , Decades (69.2), leaving only just a hand full (less then 3) channels that cater to the under 40 year olds. (Note: If OTA's are hoping to lure the younger generations to their subnets putting on TV shows from 40+ years ago is a strange way to do that.)
