WRAL2, which previously aired Heroes & Icons Network programming, is now airing COZI-TV programming.

Heroes & Icons features shows like “Star Trek: The Next Generation” (and also the “Deep Space Nine,” “Enterprise” and “Voyager” iterations of “Star Trek”), “CHiPs,” “NYPD Blue” and “The Commish.”

COZI-TV will have shows like “Frasier,” “The Six Million Dollar Man” (and “The Bionic Woman,” of course), “Miami Vice,” “Quincy, M.E.,” “Little House on the Prairie,” “Columbo,” “The Rockford Files” and “McMillan and Wife.”

The programming switch started July 31 at noon.

But fans of Heroes & Icons shows still have access to the programs – they’re available on the over-the-air station WIRP, channel 27.4.

WRAL2 is available on over-the-air channel 5.2 and on Time Warner/Spectrum Cable channel 1255.
