Make48 is releasing their sixth season on This Old House Makers Channel (Roku Channel #458) on February 22nd, 2023. It will be the first time the 2022 regional winning teams will be announced!
This Old House Makers Channel will broadcast the seven competitions in a 3.5 hour block, beginning with the first episode in Wichita at 7pm EST/6pm CST. Six more episodes will follow in this order: Milwaukee, Madison, Indianapolis, North Little Rock, Beloit, and the Kansas City, KS competitions.
If you miss the first airing, Roku will repeat these episodes every Wednesday night for four consecutive weeks. Make48 traveled to seven cities last year to hold challenges that connected makers with industry leaders and the best fabricators in the country to create a prototype, within the specifications of a challenge, in 48 hours.
