Here in Denver, we have been lucky to get the KCDO channel, a relatively new station located on Channel 3. Watching KCDO is like stepping into a time machine. They have been broadcasting old TV shows from the Retro Television Network (along with their own programming, plus great local TV commercials). These days, reruns of great classic TV shows are hard to come by.

I haven’t quite figured out their schedule yet, but I have have seen Beverly Hillbillies, McHales Navy, Hogan’s Heroes, The Munsters, Star Trek, Hawaii Five-0 & Mission Impossible.

Sure, you can buy DVDs of these old shows (often with the music changed to stock music due to copyrights), but most of us wouldn’t buy them or wouldn’t make the effort to pop one in to sit down and watch. But, if you can just turn on your TV at a random hour and there is a good chance of great 1950s-60s-70s television, you can’t help but to stop changing channels and sit and enjoy. And, they seem to zero in on the choice classic episodes. Thanks KCDO!

KDCO is (was) a GREAT channel. Unfortunately they’re no longer an RTV affiliate and soon might be moving away from Classic TV. Here’s More info:

well, well if it isn’t the second class channel 3 which can’t seem to be able to get their closed caption figured out. Why don’t you check with the other channels in the Denver area to see how they do it?

JOHN MILLER February 1st, 2011 at 11:22 pm

If my comments need moderation – whatever that means = then you gals and guys are really in a fog.

JOHN MILLER February 3rd, 2011 at 11:17 pm

WELL, WELL, 4 NITES IN A ROW! ARE YOU TRYING TO SET A NEW RECORD FOR HAVING THE CLOSED CAPTION MESSED UP OR WHAT?

JOHN MILLER February 4th, 2011 at 11:11 pm

FIVE NITES IN A ROW FOR “GET SMART” AND “THE ODD COUPLE.” EHY DON’T YOU MUTE ONE OF YOUR TY SETS AND THEN TRY TO MAKE ANY SENSE OUT OF THE CLOSED CAPTION? YOU CAN GET ANOTHER COMPANY TO DO THIS JOB. THANKS FOR YOUR PATIENCE.

JOHN MILLER February 7th, 2011 at 11:09 pm

WELL, 6 IN A ROW. YOU’LL MAKE THE HALL OF FAME IN NO TIME. OH, YEAH, YOUR WEEKEND WAS LOUSY TOO.

JOHN MILLER February 16th, 2011 at 10:45 pm

THANK YOU!

I would like to know why you took off Odd Couple & Streets of San Francisco?
I’m 6 1/2 years older then my husband he has always heard me talk about those shows from the 70’s.
We looked forward to watching Streets every Saturday.
Then we would start our day.
Will it be back anytime soon.
You can keep Hardcastle and Mccormick in the can.
I’m 51 I really miss them Thank You for keeping Mission Impossible.

Thanks

Last Friday,5-15-11 at 5:30 pm you aired part 1 of a 2 part Hawaii 5-0. I expected to see the second part today, 5-18, but it was not on. When can I expect to see part 2.

Keli W. June 15th, 2011 at 4:07 pm

I enjoy watching the shows on KDCO. But the signal is weak for viewers here in Morrison, CO. Even on calm days the signal is choppy, especially in the late afternoon. Can you boost the signal for viewers over by the foothills? Thank you for your consideration.

Random Dude June 27th, 2011 at 10:03 pm

This channel is becoming more and more modern. They are canceling shows, and replacing them with ones that won;t get many more viewers.

Edee August 30th, 2011 at 11:03 pm

Love this channel!
I am currently watching (classic) Star Trek and so happy.
Good job!

Caron Scanlan September 7th, 2011 at 6:05 pm

What time has Hawaii 50 been moved to?

Dottie and Bill September 8th, 2011 at 5:51 pm

We are unhappy with the new line up this week (09.06.11). We come home and love to watch Starsky and Hutch, Rockford Files and Hawaii Five O in the early evening. Now we come home to Jerry Springer. Are you kidding me?? This is ridiculous. We’d like to see you go back to these classic shows being broadcast as they were. You’re losing our viewership with shows like Jerry Springer rather than the old classics in the late afternoon/early evening. It’s too bad. We really enjoyed your channel with the old classics, not the new crap. Thanks.

jIM September 11th, 2011 at 11:24 pm

lOVE YOUR STATION. wATCH BLACK SHEEP, WHEN i CAN FIND IT. Sat. 6pm and Sun. At 7pm.
But I missed it od 9/11, I guess you moved it to 6pm? Please show it more.I have worked hard to get an Antanna to pull in your station.
So please keep BLACK SHEEP on and at the same times so we don’t miss it.
Thanks

G Miller September 13th, 2011 at 9:35 pm

Really bummed out that you moved Trek to an earlier time slot and put Jerry Springer at 10:30pm, and what a load of garbage that show is. I looked forward to watching Trek before going to sleep, now I just watch Seinfeld on CW2 and that has to do for me. Please put Trek and Mission Impossible back at 10:30 and 11:30!

Richard S Bucklew September 24th, 2011 at 6:44 pm

Kevin Conner September 25th, 2011 at 8:23 am

i can’t seem to find channel 3 on my digital tv – can u help me find u so i can watch? thanks.

Steven S January 15th, 2012 at 10:05 pm

Old shows are great… but shows like Colorado Now and Consumer news is more of what this station needs!! topics local to Denver! Colorado now on Sunday eve, and CNTV on Sunday mornings… why not rotate these a few more times.

james gibson January 28th, 2012 at 10:13 pm

‘Hamburger Hill’ Saturday 01/28
your station just ends the movie to get in your ‘dental implant’ show.
about par with the past/current media’s attitude towards this country’s military…
they, nor their story counts to you does it…
just your friggin money.
Last time I will *ever* watch channel 3

Michael Miller April 1st, 2012 at 5:01 pm

Since you have decided to take Magnun and Black Sheep Squadron off you’re nightly line up> there is no longer any reason to watch you’re network! Hope the Trackies are happy!

Dennis Stritchko May 1st, 2012 at 5:42 pm

KCDO, I have always liked the way the station reruns popular shows that are not on any other cable or network channel. I think that the station is slipping past what got the station going. I would like to suggest to invest in more of the “hard to find” TV classics, such as “The Wild Wild West”, “My Favorite Martian” and move “Mission Impossible” back to more of a viewer friendly time slot. More of the classic reruns, less of the “Jerry Springer” type programming.

Tom Lundin May 3rd, 2012 at 10:44 pm

Enjoying these comments, but please note that The Denver Eye is in no way affiliated with KCDO-TV!

Stop interrupting programs with thunderstorm warnings!!

william offenhamer October 29th, 2012 at 3:45 pm

i am upset because you all have taken “fantasy island” off the air at 5 am in the mornings. i loved that show and now you replaced it with a show that i do not like. can you please tell me why you took my show off the air?

Terry Ray Anderson January 14th, 2013 at 12:11 am

I no longer live in Denver (whaaa! I miss it!!!), but it sounds kind of like a modern KWGN; old classic reruns, just with another 40 years to create a batch of them. The shows KCDO is showing now were prime time shows in the 60’s and 70’s. Now if they bring back “Creature Features” and “Sci-Fi_Flix” I’d really wish I could move back! Sad to find out about Westminster Mall today; growing old stinks!

steve February 4th, 2013 at 6:33 pm

please please don’t run two Natural Grocer commercials in one commercial break. they are awful. one is bad enough….two is cruel punishment.

Gary April 16th, 2013 at 4:58 pm

I can’t receive your digital signal at all, I don’t have cable. Can you suggest a quality antenna thats not to expensive I can buy?

Christy wenger July 7th, 2013 at 3:54 pm

Why are you taking half of south park off that’s not right wish you didn’t have to do that.

Christy wenger July 7th, 2013 at 3:56 pm

Why are you taking half of south park off .?I like south park!

Chip M November 21st, 2013 at 12:48 pm

Hey I just watched CNTV Consumer News TV on KCDO for the 6the week and really liked it again! You never know what your going to see on that show. So many companies i had no idea existed! This is good for small business and great for me and my wife to try out new places!
Thanks KCDO for offering good local programming.
ps. The Closed Captions worked JUST FINE.
(just wished the show was lil later, kudos to Tivo)
