Didja In The News
We believe the most relevant, delightful and important programming for many everyday Americans is coming not from the internet or from streaming apps, but from live local broadcast programming. For many people, local broadcast television is a vital community link, for others it’s where the most-watched shows are available for the right price. And perhaps most importantly, it’s fun! Remember – or ever tried – channel surfing?
