Will the StarNews expand TV listings to a full page?

Q. Will the Star News print edition ever expand the TV listings to a full page so we can get the schedule for all the Wilmington channels like Me Tv, Bounce, This, and the Cape Fear CW? The current listings include the secondary channels for UNC TV but not for WWAY, WECT, WILM or WSFX.

A. Probably not.

TVlistingsThe StarNews is unlikely to expand the space devoted to TV listings because the expense involved wouldn’t be justified by the number of readers who use them. We’re finding that more and more dedicated TV watchers are using TV listings provided by cable and satellite providers, which are displayed on TV screens.

We do run a full page of listings on Saturdays and Sundays so we can list the daytime TV schedules. We don’t run them on weekdays because for many channels, the programming doesn’t vary much from day to day.

As we’ve said in another answer, the stations we currently have listed are those most commonly available to all readers, across all the local cable and satellite networks, and are stations with high overall viewership.

Can the StarNews TV Listings include the local listings for RTV, Bounce and This TV?

Why aren’t local movie listings printed every day in the StarNews like they are in other newspapers? Why are they in classified instead of near the TV listings where they once were?
