BANGOR WABI-TV recently announced the coming addition of a third over-the-air television channel called 'Decades.' The channel, similar to other retro-television shows will be airing classic shows 'with a twist.'

'Rather than airing a standard daily schedule of classic shows, Decades' treats each day of the week as a separate time capsule' with a common theme, or tied to a common day or date,' said Steve Hilz, WABI programming director. 'No two days are exactly the same.'

The 'Decades' library includes memorable television shows from the 1950s to the 1990s, ranging from 'Peter Gunn' and 'Naked City' to 'Hogan's Heroes,''Dark Shadows,' 'Cheers,' 'The Greatest American Hero,' and 'Beverly Hills 90210.'

The new channel will be designated as WABI-DT3 received over-the-air as cannel 5.3 on most televisions. Time Warner Cable will also carry 'Decades' within the bangor television service area. The launch date has not been announced.
