Actually not failed or misleading there are a number of tv stations carrying Cool TV as a digital sub channel now.

I however don’t believe that is is being distributed by satellite.

According to another source, a digital subchannel in Wichita, Kansas dropped "TheCoolTV" for "The Walk TV" on July 31, 2017.
Nice dodge of the fact that you're citing Wikipedia.;)

I wonder how they manage to choose what content from the 11 genres gets aired.

It is notable that rabbitears indicates that this channel shares with NINE (9) other live channels. That's the largest number of channels I've seen on a single frequency.

Don’t forget WROB/KMJC/KCKS which has 12.

Is The Cool TV back as a subchannel then or not?
If so what kind of videos does it show now? It says it an 'indie' music channel on its website. But didnt it show more mainstream videos when it was on TV before? Does it show '80's at 8' type videos now? (Like mainstream videos?)

TheCoolTV has been off the air since 2017. It's just a website with streaming video now, according to Wikipedia.


The only music channels left on broadcast TV:

*Country Music Videos
**The Country Network (was called ZUUS Country for a brief period of time)
**Heartland (formerly a rebooted The Nashville Network)

*Christian Music Videos
**JUCE TV (formerly JCTV)




Former Music Video Channels

*Now on Cable/Satellite TV
**MTV2
**Tr3s (formerly MTV Tres)

*Now on the Internet
**Bohemia Visual Music (1982-2011)
**TheCoolTV (2009-2017)

*Defunct
**The Box (1985-2001; became MTV2)
**Retro Jams (2007-2009)
**The Tube (2005-2007)



I also miss TheCoolTV, but it's time to face facts. It has NO plans of returning to TV.

Rabbitears also shows The Cool TV on KCTU. Next time I’m in Wichita I’ll verify. Ironmagz also lives in the area..

I am just about ready to see what I can get and what is available! At least temporarily so....

I've got a 60 mile yagi antenna on the way and will play around with up to 3 or 4 10' pieces of chain-link top rail to see what I can get... If I find this (KCTU) The Cool TV I will surely let everyone know! :)

I hope to know more by this coming weekend!! It's going to be kind of exciting to play! :)
