I scanned for locals on my 622 and 722 to see if Iceberg was right about theCool TVcoming to DC about now. I do NOT see that but I am seeing something unusual around 66 (WPXW) the DC ION station and 67 (Baltimore's MPT/PBS Station).

66 now shows 66=44 Tele
66=45 Cine
66-46 Pasi

and two separate listings at 66-10 Star and Airb

67 now shows
67-72 NFL
67-73 redZ
and 67-81 GOIT


They all have good signal strength but only seem to have blank screens. Are these some form of mobilecasting for cell phones or something else?

It’s called AirBox, some kind of OTA set top box subscription service. All of the channels are coming from ION, even the ones in the 67 range. They have a web site with nothing on it. Here is their twitter link saying it is currently only available in Houston.

Thanks pamajestic. This is an example of something you are unklikely to find an answer for elsewhere on the net but sometimes another forum member has the answer.
