I'm guessing this, along with their acquisition of Mystery Science Theater that was earlier announced this year, they are trying to buff up their Saturday night programming hoping that will get them picked up with a few more cable networks.

The biggest problem with Retro right now is it's limited to a few low power over the air stations. I'm lucky to be in a spot where I can receive it, but there are lots of people I know in the area who can't
