    There's been some noise in the forum about a new Sinclair channel coming but not much definitive about when and where it will debut.

    Pray it isn't TBD.

    ASN doesn't seem likely.

    I'm pretty sure all the Spanish language channels are already covered and Charge! is already on KUNP.

    It'll be either TBD, CHARGE!, or COMET. You can pretty much bet money on that... So if some sub-channels are already out there as one of those 3, there's only the ones that aren't yet deployed in that area that soon will be..

    Charge! and Comet are already covered in the market. This is why I lead with "Pray it isn't TBD".

    I edited my post, see above. TBD is then most likely.

    From what I've heard, TBD is something to be feared as a nearly complete waste of bandwidth. I'm convinced I don't need to hunt it down.

    Don't the KATU translators carry the subchannels now? Maybe it was just mwdxer1 fantasizing from his coastal location. ;)

    Maybe there will be something good come from the repack when it finally gets completed.

    Email From katu engineering regarding 2.4

    There is rumors of this happening, but I have no confirmation of if, when or what it will be. That is a corporate decision and they will let us know when a decision is made.
