TBD is New Free Over-the-Air Network with Original Programming

A new golden age of over-the-air TV is being ushered in by the new digital TV revolution of the late 2000s. More and more over-the-air TV stations are being rolled out and current TV stations are expanding to more markets.

What is TBD?

The Sinclair Broadcast Group has joined the movement with its new over-the-air and online station called TBD TV. Launched February 13, 2017, with stations WLUK-TV in Green Bay, Wisconsin, 5.3 in Syracuse, New York, and streamed online.

The programming is aimed at millennial audiences and combines online and over-the-air programs. Unlike some free over-the-air channels, this is not just one more network re-airing older content. It seems TBD’s schedule is made up of mostly new programing.

TBD Programming Line-Up

Early programs on TBD’s schedule include the following:

  • “10 Up”: information and “top ten lists” covering online gaming and eSports
  • “Because Science”: explanations of the science and physics behind fandom and fantasy figures, hosted by Kyle Hill
  • “While You Were…”: recaps the week’s top online news stories
  • “Best of the Week”: showcases the week’s best viral videos
  • “Big Red Lazor”: a hybrid talk show and video game competition
  • “QYOU UP”: weekday morning presentations of inspiring and inspirational videos and music
  • “QYOU ZONE”: showcases “the wildest, funniest, hottest web videos on the planet”
  • “QYOU PRIME”: early evening presentations of trending online videos and undiscovered features
  • “QYOU EDGE”: weird, wacky, and gritty web videos presented during TBD’s overnight hours
  • “This Week in Fails”: FailArmy’s showcase of epic fails(for example, stunt mishaps) caught on videotape
  • “TableTop”: Wil Wheaton and guests highlight and play various tabletop games

I am a dedicated cord cutter who owns Cord Cutters News. My goal is to help as many people as possible break free of high monthly cable bills without losing access to all the content they want to watch.

I have had the opportunity to test out a ton of great cord cutting services and devices. Hopefully, from all my reviews, news, and how to’s someone has saved a lot of money. At the end of the day my goal is to see as many people as possible leave “cable” behind and find the freedom and savings cord cutting can give them.
