I thought WMYD was going to add it not WXYZ.
That's what I also thought.

Anyways WXYZ-DT4 has been added as of this morning. Does not produce a signal yet though.

UPDATE: And WXYZ-DT4 disappeared entirely around 12:30 PM.

Re: Court TV is coming to WXYZ 7.4 in May

Interesting, my set hasn't yet recognized WXYZ-DT4, but somehow it added WEWS-DT4, which will be the Court TV station for the Cleveland market. Last I checked that, it was just a black screen.

Re: Bell wants to shut down more CTV transmitters

I remember reading Windsor had one of the highest OTA viewship numbers in the country, probably because of Detroit and Toledo. If memory serves, Windsor carries all of the Detroit stations except WADL and WPXD. Not sure if they carry the Toledo stations. Toledo stations are not carried in Windsor t...

Re: TV Guide

It doesn't make any mention of OTA. Fortunately, I have tvtv.us on my smartphones. tvtv.us recently added Canada and the UK to its service. If you want to be shocked, do a "Broadcast" listing for a small town in the UK, then a small town in USA, then a small town in Canada! This is highly surprisin...

Re: WHNE needs your Help........

In fact, I still remember when CBET would still air first-run Red Green episodes, even during those periods in which it wasn't anywhere to be found on the WTVS schedule. WTVS itself is notable for being the first US station to air Red Green.

Watched one episode yesterday...every few minutes everything froze for a second.
You’re lucky you even got a signal, Just wait when the station moves to RF Channel 3.
By the time that happens...might as well, again, get a whole new antenna.

Re: Report And Order On Translator Interference (A Doozy)

Interestingly enough, this very translator also interferes with and obliterates Cleveland's WENZ 107.9 south of the city of Detroit.

Re: Easter Weekend Tropo

WENZ 107.9 was back and again attempted to come in over La Zeta on Sunday here in Wyandotte.

As for TV DX, it was nothing too special. WKYC, WEWS, WTOL, CHWI, CIII and WQHS.

I kinda knew this sweep was inevitable. Funnily enough, I knew one person who was hoping that the Bucks would be the one blowing the lead last night.

What happened between those two? Why did Jason Carr leave Fox 2 for WDIV? Was it over money? Fox 2’s morning show hasn’t been the same since he left.
I believe it was due to layoffs imposed by Fox Television Stations a few years back.

This will be the first year LeBron won't be in the playoffs since early in his first stint in Cleveland
Correct, as both his current team (Lakers) and his previous team (Cleveland) failed to qualify for the playoffs.
