Nice for Baton Rouge to get WVLA (NBC) in HD!
Why is WWL (Channel 4) mapped down to channel 22, and why is WDSU (Channel 6) mapped down to channel 7? Are they going to be neighboring locals for another market close by?
WVLA HD has been in Baton Rouge since this 5/13/2009uplink report:
What you are seeing is the double mapping of channels for adjoining markets that are missing a station in their DMA. Like WVLA is an SV channel for the Lafayette DMA.
Digi, do you think this will be for the entire Lafayette DMA or will it be split based on the individual parishes? I.E. WVLA is SV for Lafayette, KPLC is SV for Acadia, and KALB is SV for Evangeline for NBC.
A couple of the "fill ins" don't make sense to me:
I would think that filling in ABC/CBS with KATC/KLFY would be more appropriate - Excepting Fox, Lake Charles and Lafayette have been complementing each other on the big 3 networks. Cable carries 3 & 10 in LC...
See above, with KPLC for NBC. Cable carries 7 in LFY...
