no Tampa either. All say 11/1 launch dates
Yep but as of tonight they don't exist. However at WJBK we are learning the signal is there but has not been released for general viewing. I.e. No flag for your tv to catch it yet

Now I'm seeing 11/9 for Phoenix, 11/10 for Tampa and 11/15 for San Francisco on their website. Detroit is still saying 11/1 but I expect that to be updated shortly. They still claim that Dallas is on-air but I've seen claims to the contrary.

Surprise! H&I has made its appearance in Phoenix, not on a KUTP subchannel on virtual channel 10.2, replacing the SD simulcast of KSAZ-TV, but on a subchannel of KSAZ-TV itself, on virtual channel 10.3.

Houston has a FOX O&O But it sound like KPRC beat it to the punch..in which they get 1st dibs
The only FOX O&O that added it were ones that didnt have it in the market

According to RabbitEars, Graham Media's KPRC Houston will soon air H&I on 2.3. Doesn't Houston have a FOX O&O, or was Houston not part of the deal?
Houston does what they want I guess.....Decades launched on the KTXH (MNTV which FOX owns) which is more of a CBS O&O agreement with Weigel (which I am sure you know that). I guess Graham Media beat them to the punch. H&I is probably the first subchannel that had a contract with an O&O conglomerate months after it launched.

CBS is not O&O in Houston. Tegna (Gannett) owns it

sounds about right. Most subs that signed with a O&O was at launch (Buzzzr, Movies!, Decades, Laff, LiveWell)

Speaking of Fox and the H&I deal. I wonder why KRIV (FOX OTS) never added any of the subchannels, they're all on KTXH.

I am just glad that H&I got a contract with one of the Major Network with their O&O's. It is a great subchannel to watch.

FOX usually wants to keep subs off the Fox station if possible (bandwidth issues). Thats why until KMSP/WFTC here in Minneapolis did their switch around (putting both FOX & MY in HD on RF29) most of the subs when added went to WFTC My29.

But if there was no CBS O&O in the market (or Milwaukee...since its owned by Weigel) Decades is a "free game" station and any affiliate in a market can add it...just like the ABC stations in WIsconsin (Madison, Wausau, Eau Claire, LaCrosse) added it.
