Well it did take A LLLLLOOOONNNNNNNGGGGGG time. Sort of gave up.
That's how I felt when I had asked you a week ago if something was going to launch on the station (think it was on the comet thread). Then when we gave up, something launched. I guess 5 months is short or long depending on how you take it. At the rate things were going (with the Meredith deal and Nexstar going postal trying to buy MG) we could have been waiting longer. Then I'd just would have had to really lay down because I know the more I posted about when we were getting something and the longer we would have waited (longer than we have now), then I just could't keep posting about it, it would have been a waste and I don't want you guys to think I am crazy or something or having to read the same sh*t day in and day out thinking, "What's wrong with this guy, it's only a subchannel replacement."

Not to get off the subject Fred. You have a nice DMA subchannel set up. I counted 8 subchannels (excluding the PBS and LP religious ones)......Not bad for a Tribune, MG, Sinclair, and Raycom in the market........Love the FOX 35 Setup. Fox on the .1 MNTV/This on the .2 (yeah you dont have to see the b.s. block of drama during the day, that's when This TV comes on. Wonderful I love it) then the new Comet on the .3..........

In addition to the subchannels I get OTA (Antenna, Ion, Me, Escape, This, Comet, Bounce, Grit), I receive most of the rest FTA: Cozi, H&I, Retro, Laff, Justice, Buzzr etc.. Plenty of good programming.

Thats good. I seen there were 5 of the major networks carrying a total of 8, thats neat. Oh the res like the H&I bunch, how you get it this other way (FTA).

Look in the FTA area. Will require a Ku or CBAND dish and receiver. You can look at the sat guys list at top of website too for what's available on the various sats both FTA free and subscription (Dish/Directv)

Well looks like the Saga for LWN replacement is still alive (on the KLFY 10.2) and whomever.....Whatever it is I'm gonna wait. I already got my answer from MG and posted it on the ion thread. Between the Nexstar negotiations and signing diginets from the laff, grit, escapes, and whatever I was told hang tight we're not finished yet.....

Media General station WRIC has finally replaced Living Well.
The replacement is Ion.
I really hate to bother you with this. Whenever you decide to rescan your tv, when your done and see if WRIC has this label

8.2(or 8.3)
GetTV.

There is no audio or video
Thanks, when i rescanned today thats what showed on klfy 10.2

To keep Tabs on what Media General has launched in place of Livewell. I am very pleased at their progress and do apologize for dragging them in the mud for 6 months which was wrong to do and I DEFINITELY take full responsibility for my actions........Well the MG markets without an ION that had livewell, we have ION and those markets with the ION O&O were able to receive some sort of replacement.....Here is the latest update...

WKRN 2.1 ABC, 2.2 MeTV (Feb 1) replaces WX, 2.3 Justice Network (replaces LWN)
WATE 6.1 ABC 6.2 Programming Soon (replaces LWN) 6.3 Laff (was supposed to replace LWN but was dropped to the .3 a month ago)
WTEN/WCDC 10.1/19.1 ABC, .2 Weather (Presumably another subchannel in the future which Escape might be the only option), .3 Justice (Replaces LWN)
KLFY 10.1 CBS, 10.2 GetTV (soon, replaces LWN), 10.3 ION, 10.4 waiting on a response from MG.
WBAY 2.1 ABC, 2.2 WX, 2.3 ION (LWN Replacement)
WRIC 8.1 ABC, 8.2 ION (replaces LWN). No known .3 addition
WLNS 6.1 CBS, 6.2 ION (replacement of LWN), No known .3 Addition

Looks like WATE, WKRN, and KLFY have filled their spots. I would like to see the rest that still have the WX and no .3 have something else at a later date (yes I probably shouldn't be concerned since I do not live in the other markets but we are FAMILY).
