I hope they replace the duplicate subchannels in some markets soon. My guess is that Dabl, Decades, getTV and other would be vying to fill up that extra space. What would really be nice, is if some of those subchannels would open up doors to some potential new small-market Univision and Telemundo affiliates...
With two TBD, three Bounce, that is a total waste in Portland.

I am confused as heck by the Indianapolis situation. We're still not getting all the Scripps/Katz national networks, but what they have done is added duplicated feeds of QVC & HSN to the two stations they now own here, so there are now 3 feeds of QVC and HSN across Indianapolis. Presumably some of these are placeholders, but why not use Newsy for at least one? Give us some content, since they claim to be this national powerhouse of content.

Newsy isn't an OTA network.

And Indianapolis definitely gets all the current Katz networks, unless I'm missing something:

Bounce is on 42-1 and 23-2.
Court TV is on 59-3 and 63-2.
Court TV Mystery is on 63-4.
Grit is on 6-2.
Laff is on 6-3.

As it relates to Ion/Laff...the ABC O&Os replaced Laff with This TV on their .3 channels, and also added the HSN/QVC networks as a fourth diginet offering on the same day (except in Chicago, where WLS is channel-sharing with Unimas O&O WXFT).

HSN is now on Channel 7.4 in New York City and San Francisco, 11.4 in Raleigh/Durham, and 30.4 in Fresno; QVC is on 6.4 in Philadelphia, 13.4 in Houston, while QVC2 is on 7.4 in Los Angeles.

starting on 4/5/21 QVC was replaced with LAFF on channel 41.5 will i be able to watch qvc on another channel any time soon? i dont have cable
You didn't post what market you are in but luckily you posted your zip code in your profile which puts you in the Minneapolis market and KPXM.

I would assume that the HC2 stations (KWJM 15, K33LN 33 or KMBD 43) will carry it at some point. All 3 broadcast from the IDS building in downtown Minneapolis but at lower power than KPXM does. Less than a week ago both 33 & 43 were carrying QVC and a couple days later switched back to the network they were carrying (Bounce and CourtTV Mystery)

As of October 1, Newsy will be an OTA network reaching about 80 percent of households. Smart move by Scripps.

Would like to see full time newsy channel comes to Albuquerque's TV market.

However we don't have Scripps owned stations, so it's up to whatever non Scripps stations to pick it up. :hungry :hatsoff
