During 2014 This TV only added a total of seven new affiliates (with one a duplicate signal and another a semi-satellite) so the losses in 2015 do impact the network. The loss of over four million households in 2015 is a dramatic turn for This TV as we see the appetite for classic TV nets shift to Grit and Get TV.
