    Unable to access SatelliteGuys using Firefox

    For the past couple of weeks, I have been unable to access SatelliteGuys using the Firefox browser using the command SatelliteGuys.US. Instead, I get the message on the first page of the attached file. If I try the webpage just using SatelliteGuys.US, I get the message on the second page. I...

    MP4 OTA Testing

    Even so, whether by accident or by design, it's timely that the thread was resurrected. MPEG4 hasn't been in the news since forever, but in the past month, Gray Television has begun running an MPEG4 subchannel simulcasting one or more of their MPEG2 subchannels. Why? No one is certain yet...

    NextGen TV Expands in Phoenix

    Phoenix has had NextGen since 2018, but in July, expanded by adding KTVK and KTAZ to the NextGen lineup. KASW and KFPH-CD are NextGen hosts and the other stations have their NextGen signals on those two stations. KPHO and KPNX switched hosts, from KFPH-CD to KASW, and KTVK and KTAZ replaced...

    EW Scripps to launch OTA subchannels Doozy and DefyTV.

    Nothing from Scripps, other than a rename of Doozy to TrueReal in late March. Defy TV and TrueReal will likely launch on Ion stations, replacing the QVC and HSN subchannels, per RabbitEars, but there are uncertainties for the Ion stations that were spun off to Inyo Broadcasting, and for those...

    MeTV is launching MeTV+

    And if KMOH is airing it, no one in Phoenix can tell. KMOH serves Kingman AZ, about 175 miles from Phoenix (but in the Phoenix market). Weigel isn't even putting MeTV+ on KMOH's LPTV sister station in Phoenix, KEJR-LD.

    WYOU/WBRE TV Central PA - Problems

    Those of you in the area may want to check again. AVSForum readers are reporting that all is back to normal.

    Looks like KQML may be going live soon

    That's just the Infomercial / Classic TV subchannel that HC2 has been putting on a lot of its stations. A lot of old public domain shows (Bonanza, Beverly Hillbillies) but very little variety. I saw the same back-to-back episodes of Bonanza three nights in a row. My local HC2 station shows an...

    Las Vegas area OTA availability

    Most locations in Vegas will have good reception. It's mostly LOS there and with almost all of the stations on Black Mtn., even the LPTV stations should be pretty easy to receive. They should even have a NextGen station by Memorial Day if all goes according to plan. If you look up the...

    Help with selecting an Antenna

    One caveat is that WHNE-LD, virtual channel 14, is moving from RF channel 20 to RF channel 3, so if you're interested in any of its 12 subchannels, you'll eventually need an antenna capable of receiving low-VHF signals, or make a low-VHF antenna yourself and join it into your antenna feed using...

    Dabl must have signed a contract with Ventana Television (owners of HSN). In Tucson AZ, Dabl debuted on the NBC affiliate in September, but now the low-power Ventana Television station, formerly airing only HSN, has added Dabl. It's an odd lineup; HSN on 21.1, QVC on 21.2, HSN2 on 21.3, QVC2...

    Decades is back to Detroit.

    Fox-owned stations in 12 markets are scheduled to add Decades to their lineup. In addition to Detroit, six other new Decades affiliates debuted in Los Angeles CA (KTTV 11.4), Dallas TX (KDFW 4.2), San Francisco CA (KICU 36.4), Houston TX (KTXH 20.3), Atlanta GA (WAGA 5.5) and Phoenix AZ (KUTP...

    Dabl made its Phoenix debut yesterday, Sept. 21, on KPHO-TV VC 5.3.

    The network DABL premiered Sept. 9th. That doesn't mean affiliates start airing it then. Each station has its own contractual obligations and will begin airing DABL when conditions warrant. We're still waiting in Phoenix as well, but I don't really expect DABL soon. KPHO-TV was announced as...

    Lots of errors on the DABL website. DABL will be on channel 4.4 in Tucson, not 14.4, and will be on channel 5.3 in Phoenix, not 4.3, which doesn't exist in the Phoenix market.

    How far away can you get channels nowdays with an antenna?

    Height of the broadcasting antenna is very important as well. Mt. Bigelow sits about 6000' above Tucson, and I can pick up a few of the low-power TV signals on Mt. Bigelow from Phoenix, about 100 miles away.

    FCC will start accepting ASTC 3.0 CP on May 28th

    Please. While it would have been better to spell out the meaning of "CP", context leaves little doubt of what the OP meant. (OP means "original poster", for those of you in Rio Linda.) But if I wanted to get technical, I'd counter that the FCC doesn't accept construction permits; it grants...

    Scripps buys CBS stations in Western Montana

    Actually, all but one - KVOA Tucson. Cordillera had to spin that off to Quincy Media, as Scipps already has a duopoly in Tucson (KGUN/KWBA).

    Court TV Making a Return

    OK, is 87101 a PO Box ZIP code? When I entered it, it said Court TV was not in the area. When I entered 87102, it showed KLUZ 45.5. I tried their search on ZIP codes in my area and PO Box ZIP codes came up with no affiliate. My apologies - didn't mean to give wrong info.

    Interesting Situation - Need an Analog to Digital converter

    Harshness is absolutely correct here. The content on this analog station better be vitally important and unavailable elsewhere; otherwise, you're wasting your time and money. Most TV stations are already digital and those that are not have until July 12, 2021, to either convert to digital or...

    I seem to recall seeing a "TV antenna" advertised some years ago that claimed to use your home's wiring as its antenna. It was a scam product.

    Nielsen sees 'Resurgence' in OTA Households

    I keep hearing this bleating about OTA TV needs to be able to air naughty content to compete. Yet, in the "Golden Age of Television", married couples slept in twin beds and networks practiced great restraint. Loosening standards hasn't led to better programming, and I can't help but to believe...
