Heartland on WPSD 6.2 being replaced with THIS TV

Movie fans will have a wide variety of entertainment choices with a change coming to WPSD 6.2. On Monday, August 1st, the THIS TV network will replace Heartland on the digital channel.

“As a partnership of Tribune Media and MGM, this channel will make available to viewers in our market the vast collections of films and classic programs that these organizations have in their libraries” said David Jernigan, WPSD-TV’s Vice-President of Sales and Programming. “When we originally contracted for Heartland, it was branded as the Nashville Network, but issues over the use of that trademark arose and the quality of Heartland programming did not meet our expectations. This is one of the largest markets that has not had THIS TV available to viewers and we think our viewers will like the change.”

The Ag Day program will move from 6.2 to Local 6 Classic TV 6.3 at 4:30 a.m. Mondays through Saturdays and THE NINE newscast will now only be broadcast on 6.3 as a result of the change.

WPSD 6.2 is available off air throughout the region and on Comcast Cable Channel 233 in the Greater Paducah area, Mediacom Channel 309 in western Kentucky, WK & T channel 31, Murray Electric Cable channel 7, Mediacom channel 109 in southern Illinois, Charter Cable channel 183 in Mount Vernon, Charter Cable channel 183 in southeast Missouri and west Tennessee, and Boycom channel 50 in southeast Missouri.
