Meet Quest The Newest OTA TV Network Launching This Month

Family Watching TV At Night Sitting On Sofa TogetherAs the popularity of over the air TV takes off more networks are trying to jump into the OTA market. This month TENGA is launching a new over the air TV network called Quest.

According to TENGA Quest will “capture the wonder, imagination and excitement of the natural and man-made world and features shows about natural history, engineering and science, as well as military history and man’s greatest achievements.”

“As part of TEGNA’s ongoing content transformation initiative, we are always examining ways to reach new and underserved audiences through entertaining, informative and relevant content across platforms,” said Dave Lougee, president and CEO, TEGNA. “Quest will do just that. It will offer engaging programming that will appeal to a national audience currently under-represented by multicast networks. Launching Quest across our portfolio is also a cost-effective and advantageous use of our valuable distribution capabilities.”

“Quest is a fresh take on a nature and science factual entertainment network designed specifically for the growing over-the-air multicast audience,” said Steve Schiffman, CEO of Cooper Media. “We are thrilled to build on our thriving partnership with TEGNA to fill a programming gap in the multicast space and to double down on the growing over-the-air segment.”

This is not TEGNA’s first OTA network as they first launch the Justice Network back in 2015. The Justice Network focuses on Crime programs like “I Survived” and works with big names in Crime TV like John Walsh.

Quest will launch in over 25 markets later this year including Austin; TX, Dallas; TX, St Louis; MO, Grand Rapids; MI, Seattle; WA, San Fransico; CA, and more. You can find the full list on Quest’s website HERE.

The network will include shows like Storm Chasers, Modern Marcels, Dangerous Flights, DogFights, SCI-TREK, WWI: The First Modern War, and more.

    All in SD, since it’s a sub channel, i’m guessing?

      Probably, Hope they don’t make it worse by stretching the picture to fill the tv.

    There already is a Quest TV station in the UK, I’m presuming this has nothing to do with that one.

    Their map indicates Sacramento, CA is getting the channel. NOT San Francisco. Completely different markets.

    Is it TENGA or TEGNA? It sounds like another rerun network. Think Netflix for fresh content.

      TEGNA. They are the media group that owns the Austin NBC affiliate who has NOT negotiated yet with any of the current streaming services

    Haven’t found the Justice channel worth watching. This one sounds interesting. Glad to see more channels pop up OTA. We recently found these on our OTA tv channel lineup: Classic, 81DRVN and KTOP. Still haven’t found websites for them so I can look for a schedule.

        Don’t see where antenna is an option. It’s only offering Cox Metro.
        Thank you though.
        I found which is helpful, but still doesn’t have the new channels.

      Thanks to the re-scan suggestion I found it!

      ===>> ALREADY ACTIVE in the Twin Cities on 11.4 <<===
      A very SOLID SIGNAL, too!

      Strictly promos, right now, but the 'go live' date shows as the night of Monday January 29th at 6:00 p.m. EDT/ 5:00 p.m. our time.

      Some of the promos give the appearance that there might be some content originally seen on The History Channel: 'Modern Marvels,' "Ice Road Truckers' are two that I recognized.

    If you have Justice Network, then rescan and it might be there now with promo loop.

    At this point, I don’t care anymore. Every station around here has at least two subchannels and the picture quality is suffering terribly as they divvy up their assigned bandwidth ever more. That’s not going to change since very few want to go through the hassle of getting their own FCC license for a discrete channel and building their own transmitter.
