'Star Trek,' other TV classics, to be carried by WBBZ sub-channel

"Star Trek" fans are getting some out-of-this-world TV news.

And fans who have been looking for reruns of "Hill Street Blues" and "NYPD Blue" should be pretty happy, too.

That's because starting Wednesday WBBZ-TV is changing the programming that it carries on the digital sub-channel 67.2 that is available free over the air.

"THIS TV" is out, "Heroes and Icons" is in.

"Heroes and Icons," which is presented by the same company, Weigel Broadcasting, that programs the main WBBZ-TV channel, carries all six "Star Trek" series, including the animated version.

Its roster also include reruns of such classic and iconic programs as "NYPD Blue," "Hill Street Blues," "The White Shadow," "Wiseguy," "Wild Wild West" and several more.

In order to get the new station, viewers without a digital VHF antenna are advised to rescan their TVs and digital boxes.

THIS TV, which primarily carried old movies, is distributed by MGM Television.

A Reminder:  President Trump's speech to Congress tonight is the reason that NBC's popular Tuesday program "This Is Us" won't be airing. The series has only two original episodes left in the season, with the finale pushed back to March 14.
