So, SelecTV was seen in other markets, hmm? In L.A., this subscription TV service was carried over KWHY Channel 22 during the PM hours and weekends. Oddly enough, KWHY is currently part of the NBC/Telemundo duopoly with former ON TV affiliate KVEA Channel 52. Small world, huh? Comment posted by RocketBoy on Sunday, May 30th 2010 at 6:19am.
And of course, ON TV was shown in Chicago on . . . WSNS Channel 44. Comment posted by W.B. on Sunday, May 30th 2010 at 3:03pm.

Changed call letters to which the then-WMAL later adopted. The '7' logo used at the time carried over to the WJLA calls for many years thereafter. (Today they use the same 'circle 7' logo as the likes of WLS, WABC, KABC, KGO, KATV, etc.)
The funny (peculiar) coincidence is, 20th Century-Fox had involvements in both "Lost In Space" and the originally released "Star Wars" movies. As well, Red Skelton's production company, Van Bernard, latched itself onto the TV series. (Wonder if this was on the part of CBS to keep him from bolting to "another network" - as was the case a year later when, to persuade Lucille Ball to sign on for another year of "The Lucy Show," they put then-Desilu production "Mission: Impossible" [another future WFLD staple] on the CBS schedule.) Not to mention that Fox now owns 32, has since 1986 . . .
