A fair number of readers have been emailing to ask about the status of White Springs TV, that station that shows lots of public domain movies from its lonely spot on Galaxy 27. On Thursday, October 1, we stopped seeing that channel on our receivers, and around that time, its old web site started showing an Under Construction page.
According to Victor Ives, monarch of White Springs TV, it’s not all that bad. His folks experienced “massive internal technical” problems, Ives said, but they’re hoping to use this as an opportunity to upgrade their equipment or their satellite transponder position or something. Meanwhile, viewers can watch the streaming version of WSTV on its more recent web site, WhiteSpringsTV.com. Let’s hope WSTV gets back on the air soon.
