I just noticed that Cool TV is gone! :smileysad: I loved that channel! It's what MTV was originally and played old (and a few new) music videos! I hope it just moved and I dont see it. If they removed it I will be so disappointed.

There is another thread on this. TheCoolTV is a BROADCAST network that is aired by a local broadcaster, and Comcast passes it on. It sounds like a bunch of stations, mainly Sinclair-owned, dropped it.

On the afternoon of August 31, 2012, TheCoolTV was dropped from all 32 Sinclair Broadcasting stations that carried the channel, with no replacement. No reason has been given, other than a very brief message from Jim Wright, the Regional Engineering Manager for Sinclair, who said: "We are no longer carrying CoolTV on all Sinclair stations as of this afternoon."

 

 

I researched from this link on what is currently happening with the network .. some may find an interest in reading some more about the channel.
