MST3K coming back to TV!...sort of.

This appears to be one of those affiliate networks that runs old shows, and MST3K will soon be part of their lineup. Too early to hope they do Turkey Day marathons too?

Ive never heard of this channel before. I guess its like TV Land. Before they stop showing classic show and started making there own crappy shows. Hell they got The Colgate Comedy Hour and The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet. Talk about Retro.

That is (pardon my French) Fucking cool!! I am now in the market for a capture card!!!  It would be nice to upgrade my DVDs to a direct broadcast capture instead of coming from a VHS tape!!

According to MSampo via Twitter they only have 26 episodes, mostly PD but not all: https://twitter.com/MSampo/status/448863473108529152

No closer than Olean or Utica? Drat! Problem is we've already got Me-TV in these parts (Rochester, NY), so they may feel that another retro station would be overkill.

Satellite News had the list already. Like Sampo said, it's mostly the PD episodes.. but Space Mutiny!

So we have a channel labeled RETRO here in MA on Comcast, but it doesn't appear to be the correct Retro channel...

http://www.myretrotv.com/affiliates--schedules.html

No MST3K visible on the schedule for the Retro channel we have here.  BOOOOOOO!  :-\

For those who live in Southeast Pennsylvania/South Jersey/Philadelphia region and get Comcast: Is Channel 168 the correct RetroTV?  I'm having trouble telling from the map in the link.

Same here in New Hampshire. It's apparently "Retroplex", not Retro TV. Double BOO!

Still no dice here in Rochester. Was honestly surprised no unofficial streams popped up last night, considering how many MST3k streamers are out there.

Also, it looks like the schedule got bumped around a little bit due to rights issues, per Satellite News.

Quote
Since we announced this, there were some rights issues — dull surprise! — and the new lineup of episodes is:
103- The Mad Monster
105- The Corpse Vanishes
211- First Spaceship On Venus
301- Cave Swellers
303- Pod People
320- The Unearthly
323- The Castle of Fu Manchu
402- The Giant Gila Monster
409- The Indestructible Man
412- Hercules And The Captive Women
419- The Rebel Set
424- Manos: The Hands of Fate
504- Secret Agent Super Dragon
506- Eegah!
507- I Accuse My Parents
511- Gunslinger
517- Beginning of the End
518- The Atomic Brain
610- The Violent Years
616- Racket Girls
619- Red Zone Cuba?
701- Night Of The Blood Beast
812- The Incredibly Strange Creatures…
908- The Touch of Satan
1002- Girl in Gold Boots
1009- Hamlet

They have added: Cave Dwellers, Pod People, Secret Agent Super Dragon and Eegah!

Removed from the list are: Space Mutiny, Time Chasers, Overdrawn at the Memory Bank and Merlin’s Shop of Mystical Wonders.

The schedule for the next two months:
July 5: The Mad Monster
July 12: The Corpse Vanishes
July 19: First Spaceship On Venus
July 26: The Unearthly
August 2: Cave Dwellers
August 9: Pod People
August 16: The Castle of Fu Manchu
August 23: The Giant Gila Monster
August 30: The Indestructible Man

I saw MST3K: THE MOVIE on Encore Avenue yesterday. The TV version always has the higher theater seats blocking more of THIS ISLAND EARTH. Not sure why.
