This Carolina

During the recent analog to digital transition, I purchased a couple of those converter boxes to use with my older tv sets that are connected to an outdoor antenna. I discovered that channel 12, WXII in Winston-Salem has a sub-channel (12.2) called "This Carolina". The channel features movies and vintage tv shows from the MGM/United Artists library. It is the tv shows that I am most interested in. So far I have seen Sea Hunt,Bat Masterson,The Patty Duke Show and Mr. ED. The video quality of these shows is excellent. I have not seen these shows look so good since the sixties. If your tv is a newer model which is digital ready you can receive this channel via cable or traditional antenna. The off air digital signal you get from an antenna is far superior to any cable or satellite dish I have ever had. I have got my hopes up for the addition of more tv shows to the schedule.
