    Lost my free Charter TV

    Have Charter internet and was able to get Charter's TV basic channels free, but they just came thru our neighborhood and put filters on the poles to block the TV signal. It was a good backup when weather knocks out signal. Oh, well.

    WGN America

    Has anybody noticed changes on WGN? THe guide has flipped from WGN America to just a generic WGN. But, it looks to me as if they may have switched to HD. Wish a game would have been on, would be much easier to tell. The WGN & time & temp bug does seem to be much smaller and clearer.
