Fox TV stations to see the Light

Roma Downey (late of Touched By an Angel) and her husband, producer Mark Burnett, are starting a 24-hour-a-day “faith and family” multicast channel called “Light TV” that will be carried by Fox-owned TV stations.

The channel is expected to launch in December.

It’s unknown whether the channel will air locally on KRIV or KTXH, but Channel 20’s subchannel space is currently full, with Movies!, Decades and Buzzr.

    From the article linked in your comment:

    “The seven-day per week broadcast network already has signed up affiliates in top markets, where it will air on the subchannels of Fox stations, including New York (WNYW), Los Angeles (KTTV). Chicago (WFLD), Philadelphia (WTXF), Dallas (KDFW) – Houston (KRIV), San Francisco (KTVU), D.C. (WTTG), Atlanta (WAGA), Orlando (WOFL), Phoenix (KSAZ), Minneapolis (KMSP) and Charlotte (WJZY).”

    So it appears that KRIV will, indeed, be broadcasting its first subchannel.

  2. I see this channel listed everywhere but can pull it in In Richmond Texas when I go to 26.2 it defaults back to 26.1

    Although it took a bit longer than I expected, LIGHTtv is now live on 26.2. KRIV, indeed, has it’s first subchannel.
