Anybody know what channel it'll be on Buckeye Broadband?
If Buckeye ever added WTVG-DT4 to their lineup, it should be on whatever channel it is on.

Re: WHPS 15.1

Definitely. I only got it once or twice when it was on RF33. A few days back I turned on RF15 expecting so see WEWS tropo only to be surprised to see WHPS.

For a Class A station their new transmitter is a true blowtorch.

Re: WTOL may be removing MeTV

WTOL 11.2 is my secondary Me TV affiliate, though I can only receive it once in a blue moon. With that, I ain't losing too much.

Re: Giant TBA on tomorrow's NBC schedule

Not only that, there is an interesting difference at 10:00 PM tonight (Monday September 16) as WDIV's listings show "Dateline NBC" which usually airs at that time. However, taking a look at WNWO's schedule, they list the NBC Primetime Preview show from 10:00-11:00, which is interesting because that...

In the Buffalo/Niagara region I have noticed alot more CDN ad's on Buffalo tv/radio, even the Buff PBS station dubs itself as Buffalo/Toronto since alot of canadians donate to that PBS station. Its always suprised me that the Det radio/tv didnt go after more revenue from this side of the river.I th...

Re: Old cable lineups

I find it interesting that Cartoon Network, WADL, and especially WWJ were dumped to the 90s. And still continued to have WWJ as the last channel in the lineup on the converted list. Thanks to a quirk on Zenith TV sets, those non-converter viewers who had Zenith TVs had WADL on cable channel 0, WWJ ...

Re: Helping someone get WJBK OTA in SW Wyandotte

Surprisingly, there's a new update, disappointing at first but it gets better. Susan's reception of WJBK had disappeared again, and WDIV and WXYZ had begun messing up as well. Her son came over yesterday and decided to try aluminum foil "like we used to do in the old days." All three channels began ...
