KCFW’s second digital channel started broadcasting today. Looks like they’ve picked up programming from MeTV, a Chicago station that shows comedies and dramas from the 1950s through the 1980s.

It’s probably nothing special to cable subscribers who have had TV Land and Nick at Night for years, but for those of us using only an antenna, this provides an opportunity to catch shows I haven’t seen since UHF: Dobie Gillis, The Twilight Zone, Dick Van Dyke, Bonanza, and on and on.

Only one real complaint so far: the video and the audio aren’t quite in sync.  Its sound is behind by just a fraction of a second — enough to be annoying.  Hopefully they’ll get this straightened out soon.
