So it turns out we get RetroTV, but not through my cable provider. This means I have no DVR with which to determine the time of broadcast, and they left out that sorta crucial detail on their website. Anyone know what time they play MST3K?

Saturday nights at 8, Sunday afternoons at 5.

Awesome. I found the show Saturday Night and enjoyed some Pod People (And a couple episodes of that Off Beat Cinema show. Incredibly Strange Creatures etc. is hard to watch without riffing.) before turning in last night. Didn't know there'd be a second show. I'll have to make sure to tune in.

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.
I figured that was so it looked better on 16:9 TVs

Dropped cable over 2 years ago and the wife dropped her Dish programming a couple weeks back so I hooked up my air HD antenna and got it about 30ft in the air and I can pick up Retro TV sometimes..
Lot of trees around though so maybe in the Fall or Winter when the leaves fall the signal will come in stronger :o

I salute your dropping of cable and Dish.  Never had Dish or any satellite, and dropped cable in the 1990's.

This was coming for a while now because the wife was having all sorts of problems with her account and now she has a $200 early termination fee attached to it so that won't go away any time soon..
Football season is back and that's the main reason getting that antenna up so I could catch the Sunday games but getting Retro TV (along with nearly 30 channels total) was an added bonus :o

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!  :-\


I feel your pain.  I don't get here in South Jersey for some reason.  There is a RETRO, just not the correct one.  I'll be in the corner sobbing my eyes out.  :'(

It's kind of fun watching these episodes old-school. Signal via antenna, no DVR for commercial skipping. I can't even run it through my VCR to get cheap VHS copies. I just have to watch it when it's on and try to use the bathroom during the commercials. Reminds me of the old days...

Why can't you record it on VCR?

LOL.  No, it sits on the floor.  I stopped watching tv about 1999 or so.

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!!

Amen to that! I spent an entire summer capturing from VHS! I discovered that even sitting in a cool, dry place, ie, a closet, my VHS tapes were degrading. So, I captured them, rar and par'd them.  Took forever. Now, I notice that the old style cd-roms I used degrade over time, even in case logic cases. 

I should just shell out the money, and buy every MST available.
