Recommended Posts

Does Anyone Remember ON TV? it was a limited movie subscription service that was made obsolete by the rise of Cable. In Detroit it ended in March 1983. My question is does anyone recall seeing any classic films on it ? (Maybe some people who were going through pueberty at the time tried to watched scrambled porn on it?)

I remember that they were the first to air STAR WARS on TV, but other than that, I can't recall much other than that they also had some rock concerts. We didn't get it where I live, but I remember reading about it in the trades.

 

We had the similar WHT - Wometco Home Theater - which aired mostly movies of recent vintage on a UHF channel for which you needed the descrambler. The menu was rather limited and we didn't subscribe for very long.

Before they became WOMETCO HOME THEATER they were WTVG and before that WBTB-TV channel 68. I remember watching UNCLE FLOYD on that channel and a host of old TV SHOWS. I remember being angry when they changed the format of the station and was glad when WOMETCO HOME THEATER was replaced by a home shopping channel, which it still is to this day.
