It’s alive! ALIVE! “Zombie” KQHO comes to life, plus more channel changes

There’s lots of channel changes tonight, so grab the remote and your scorecard and let’s start scanning.

The big news tonight is that one of Houston’s “zombie” stations has finally come to life! KQHO-LD is broadcasting over channel 20, former frequency home of KTXH, and is identifying with its former analog channel number (from back when it was alive in Beaumont), channel 56. KQHO is transmitting from downtown Houston along with its sister, KZHO.

Other channel changes to look for:

KUVM-LD 10.4 adds QVC, and Revenue Frontier infomercials slip down to 10.7.

KVVV has found a tenant for 15.7. The Perfect Creation Network (281-330-0273 or 832-893-7433) is running a promotional loop heralding an April launch with home shopping, news, movies, talk and Christian programming.

Thanks also to Bryan S. for the tip on KHLM 43.4 switching to infomercials.

Finally, KUVM-CD 34.3 RTV moves down one slot to 34.4, making way for QVC in 34.3. Also, 34.2, lately TheCoolTV, is now showing color bars and no PSIP short name (the seven-letter tag you see when tuning in to the station).

  1. I hope TheCoolTV isn’t gone for good

  2. KQHO was never on in Beaumont on 56 anyway…and I dont recall it EVER being on the air at all….in fact there is an analog LP 39 licensed to the Beaumont area…has been for over 10 years..the tower they are licensed to is a Kinder Morgan microwave tower…and the tech who takes care of it told me they have NEVER been there…yet they renew the license and claim to be on the air (though a LowPower doesnt have to be on more than 1-2 hours per year, NEVER putting RF into the ether means they have been lying to the FCC at renewal time….

  3. Check again on KUVM 34.2 – it has been showing informercials and promos for ‘ontv4u.com’ since March 7, 2014
