Bonanza, Petticoat Junction, Hee Haw and more…in HD.

In testing*, according an uplink update today.


*Assumption based on channel name and number (proximity to getTV).


Circle’s program schedule: Schedule - Circle

I just went to their website and I guess they are a sub channel of local programming. It seems Dish already has it because when I went to the Dish icon to see what channel it was they had you put your zip code in and mine came up with "Not available in your area yet".

Dish has been broadcasting their weekly Grand Ol Opry broadcasts every week. It will be good if they add the channel full time so I don't have to stream it.

The service is owned by TV station owner Gray Television. Circle streams for free on many apps. An interesting channel. A nice addition to our lineup.

I do not believe it has been made available yet to customers. But today is uplink day so maybe we will see it this afternoon. :)

Get this ota and never watched
Glad to het another hd channel. Nut not much to watch
Circle does run a bunch of old TV shows like F Troop and the Patty Duke Show though. So more classic TV. Dish does carry a lot of diginets now, METV, Get TV, Grit, H&I, Buzzr, Bounce, Laff, Comet, Cozi, Start TV, and Circle. Hopefully more will follow like Antenna TV & Decades. Several we do not get OTA here, so it is really great to have them. Direct TV still has not added diginets.

Why oh why did anybody invent the word "diginets" to refer to subchannels? :( Sorry; this is a pet peeve for me. I had to Google it to figure out what it was.

I wish Dish would carry the HD signal for METV instead of the squished SD signal. The SD PQ isn't horrible given the content, but its kinda a pain to have to activate the stretch picture option to watch the channel and/or recordings. First-world problem, I know. Local Charlotte station carries the HD signal, but my OTA signal is a bit spotty for that station.
