Note from WRAL station manager Jim Rothschild:  

WRAL2 is carried on most cable systems in the viewing area.

We also wish that the satellite (DirecTV and Dish) and Telco companies (AT&T U-Verse and CenturyLink) would offer WRAL2, but we have been unable to convince them to carry it. However, we do transmit WRAL2 over the air for free on channel 5.2. So depending on where you live, you may be successful picking up our signals over the air with an antenna.

    I love eevery minute of it but did not like the continous commercials especially the terminix one which is absolutely disgusting and should be taken off the air. Maybee reminds me so much of my small hometown in SC a textile town now dried up. I could not believe there were episodes i had not seen esp. the loaded goat. Wish I knew where it was filmed. Loved looking at the frame house on the street. WQhere is Andy's house located. is it still standing if so where. Loved it, loved it, sat for 2 days did not go outside except Sunday to church then recored the rest.

    Now, Now, Now, look Barney - the comercials are taking away from this special presentation today and tomorrow. (Thanks anyway WRAL) Means alot to us old folks who grew up with this line up on local air channels - about 3 on a clear night - Lawrence Welk, Carrol Burnett, and Hee Haw eve'r Sad'dty. But,lessions from the Andy Griffith Show came first.
