    There's another dignet on the way... Buzzr TV, from FremantleMedia (owners of a crapton of shows, including The Price is Right, Family Feud, American Idol, and much of the Thames TV library), and Debmar-Mercury, a syndication firm owned by Lionsgate (they help co-distribute Family Feud in syndication now alongside 20th TV), set to be launched on Fox O&O stations in the near-future; this article gives more details; I dunno who'll carry it in Portland, maybe KPTV? Or perhaps KOIN?

    KPTV has no subchannels at all right now, so there's definitely room. Getting vintage reruns of Price is Right would be great....problem is, Bob Barker's marked a large section of the library as forbidden. Any episode that gave away a fur, for example. Then there's a model that he hates so he banned any episode she appeared in which is a timespan covering decades. We'll see what we get.

    Yeah, but not just that. All sorts of game shows they could use include Press Your Luck, Password, Match Game, To Tell the Truth, Tattletales, Card Sharks, Let's Make a Deal, Sale of the Century- hell, they could easily use the game shows from the Thames and Reg Grundy libraries- ie, the UK versions of Name that Tune and Supermarket Sweep, some of Grundy's Australian adaptations, Grundy's Scrabble series- yeah, Fremantle owns a lot of game shows.

    It turns out Portland attempted a local soap opera in December of 1983.

    The article says a copy has just been discovered, but I would not be surprised if another copy has been hiding in my dad's basement this entire time.

    Thanks to my contacts over at TVNewsTalk, KPTV and KPDX will start carrying diginets; KPTV will have NBC's CoziTV (which evolved out of their "Nonstop" diginet for their O&Os), and a comedy network called Laff; KPDX will carry Escape, which carries movies aimed at women. They are part of a larger deal that Meredith, the owners of the duopoly, have cut with NBC and Katz Broadcasting, here are the reports: http://www.tvnewscheck.com/article/8...eight-stations, Meredith To Carry Grit, Escape, LAFF Networks | Broadcasting & Cable If Buzzr gets to Portland, then it'll probably be on PDX, or another station.

    Good detective work. Cozi was the one remaining diginet Portland didn't have yet, and I guess it's getting these new ones from launch day. Once these show up, every local station will have at least one diginet.

    Yeah, I'm a regular poster over at TVNewsTalk.net, which has threads about the broadcast nets, cable nets, local stations, etc. as well as things like the crapton of diginets we've gotten lately. Hence, alongside regular Wikipedia cruising, I know a lot about the Portland media market; when I first saw the thread about Meredith's new deals, I immediately knew to report here as well. Consider me your "Portland Media-National Media Relations Correspondent".
