It's happened here in the LA market too ...Here in San Francisco, KPIX, the CBS O&O, has replaced "Decades" on 5.2 with "SmartTV".
Has this happened at all of the CBS stations?
I lost KAZA in my area of town when they moved frequencies...thankfully, MeTV still kept the secondary affiliation with KDOC.It's happened here in the LA market too ...
Where DECADES has now moved from 2-2 on CBS O&O KCBS to Wiegel owned KAZA 54-2.
Which is a station that actually channel shares on a crappy low power Spanish station KHTV-CD 27.
So from a full power station with great coverage to a low power one with a poor one
Unbelievable, smh ...

Oh yeah ...I lost KAZA in my area of town when they moved frequencies...thankfully, MeTV still kept the secondary affiliation with KDOC.
They could have moved Decades to KCAL's digital spectrum, and still maintain full-market coverage (and be on KAZA 54.2), regardless if Weigel owns KAZA and Decades. KCAL is only one of two major outlets in the L.A. market without its own set of subchannels (KTTV being the other, even though channels "11.2" and "11.3" actually come from KCOP's spectrum), and the only consistent live programming they have nowadays is the nightly three-hour news block they've had for nearly 30 years, so conserving bandwidth shouldn't be an issue at all. Any sports programming they get today is whatever KCBS doesn't clear from CBS, due to preseason football or other live (emergency) programming.
I agree with you. They should have just let them keep decades on and add smart tv to the lineup.Would been a lot easier to just add start tv to the 3rd sub channel of all the stations it replaced decades on.
