¡Adiós, KTBU! “Houston’s 55” flips to MegaTV

KTBU channel 55 switched from being an English-language independent station to an affiliate of Spanish Broadcasting Systems’ MegaTV network early this morning.

MegaTV is currently being shown in standard definition; the network does produce a high-definition signal. All subchannels of channel 55 are still on the air.

  1. I THINK THIS STINKS. IT’S BAD ENOUGH WE, AS AMERICANS, HAVE TO PUT UP COMFORM OUR WAY OF LIFE TO EVERY OTHER LANGUAGE AND EVERY TACO STAND SET UP ANY PLACE THEY FEEL LIKE “ROUNDING UP” TO, NOW THEY ARE BUYING OUT OUR STATIONS. TEXAS IS BEING TAKEN OVER WITH FIRING A SHOT AND NOBODY SEEMS TO CARE. GANGS WITH THEIR LOGOS AND DRUGS AND ILLEGALS THAT WHAT YOU ARE PROMOTING WITH THIS SALE. IT IS ALL ABOUT THE MONEY AND NOT THE COUNTRY WE LIVE IN. THIS COUNTRY SPEAKS ENGLISH DEAL WITH IT OR GO HOME!!!!!

  2. If a company feels it can make money with a Spanish language station, then as a capitalistic system and a democracy, that means they get to try. If people had watched 55 enough for the English language programming to bring in money, the channel wouldn’t have been sold. The US is still overwhelmingly white and English speaking. If you can’t speak English, you would realize how ridiculous the claim is that the US is being taken over by other languages and cultures.

    • True, the prior owners couldn’t just sit around and lose money. Capitalism at work. However, I wonder if the new owners got a business loan for being a minority. That would be phony capitalism at work.

    This country speaks English and Spanish and many other languages. SBS is a Cuban owned station and has nothing to with tacos. The Cubans have only lifted up this country so I suggest you do some research before making any comments.

  4. Definitely people need to research and educate themselves before commenting.
