Rewind TV reaches 40 percent of U.S. television households, or nearly 50 million homes, including large markets such as New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago.
Rewind TV is available on newly designated or recently vacated digital sub-channels licensed to Nexstar. Nexstar’s companion digital network, Antenna TV, remains focused on programming from the 1960s and 1970s, including weeknight reruns of Johnny Carson.
“We created Rewind TV to give Gen X viewers a network dedicated to their own nostalgic comedy classics,” said Sean Compton, President of Nexstar Media inc.’s Network Division. “We’re excited about today’s debut, and looking forward to expanding the network to millions more viewers in additional markets across the country. Rewind has a lot of opportunity for growth.”
