I am so out of the loop on watching broadcast television.

How the hell do you tune to a station that is channel 10.3??

You need a digital antenna on your (Hopefully digital by now) TV. Digital broadcast signals go up in 10ths.

The tricky part for me when I was first tuning into Retro TV is my TV would only let me add channels if it found them during a scan, and the signal for Retro TV was a bit spotty. So I had to keep moving the antenna and rescanning until it figured out it was there.

Fortunately for me, Comet is actually carried by my cable company, so I can tune in with my cable box and DVR it if I want. Having to watch TV while it's actually on is so '80s. :^)

I got rid of cable a while ago. What I am curious about with Comet is what episodes are they going to air? Some real curiosity there. They have an episode guide on thier site:

http://www.comettv.com/episode-guide/Mystery+Science+Theater+3000/184037/Season-1/

If you look for season 1 they are missing a few episodes. So is this just an incomplete episode guide or is it a guide to what they will be showing?

If you look at later seasons they are listings for Godzilla movies... Amazing Colossal Man, Danger Diabolik!!  If these in fact are episodes they are going to show I will get a TV tuner for my computer so I can get modern broadcast rips of the unreleased shows!! 

On Sept 4th according to the site the first two episodes are Manos and Teenagers from Space....

If they are only going to show the same episodes that are out on DVD then it really is a not a big deal to me.

I did send a message to their facebook page asking about it. We will see how they answer!

I don't know much about Comet.  I assume its a retro sci-fi channel?

Are they going to show new episodes or only seasons 1-10?

Seems like just the ones from the previous Seasons.

Yep, older scifi movies and Stargate and Outer Limits episodes.

My understanding is only Netflix gets Season 11. At first, anyway. Maybe there's a time frame where it can be syndicated.

So this is the message I sent Comet TV on facebook:

Quote
On your website you have an episode guide to MST3K... There are some titles missing (a couple mistakes too). Is this just supposed to be an episode guide to the show or is it a list of episodes you will be able to show?  There are some gems on there that are not available on DVD. You will be asked this question a hundred times if you haven't been asked already...


This was the response:

Ian, Thanks for you message. The schedule shows the episodes we will be airing. You can click on each title for details on that episode. Thanks for watching COMET!

So I am not sure they understood what I was asking or not. I will be checking the schedule often to see what they air.

Now the guide is off the site.   Oh well. Probably just the all the same titles that are easily available to buy. Was hoping for some gems.

They need to talk to the Sci-Fi Channel to figure out how to move the logo bug to the left side of the screen.
