WPHL 17-2 ThisTV has moved to 17-3 and there is now a vague slide on 17-2 indicating that some other programming be coming to 17-2 soon. Anyone have an idea what it will be?

Why not keep ThisTV on 17-2 and add the new channel on 17-3...? Odd.

My guess is 17-2 will become Antenna TV (http://antennatv.tv/shows/antenna/).

Since Antenna TV and WPHL are both owned by Tribune Broadcasting, it would make sense Antenna TV is going to get the higher placement

Cool.. looks like some good shows. WPMT 43-x (local in my market) will also be an affiliate. No idea if they will be using 43-2 and get rid of their news channel or put Antenna TV on 43-3. We'll have to wait and see.

Is that RTN? We were supposed to get a brand new channel last month, but hasn't come on yet. It's really a shame that TVLAND is so lousy.

WPMT is also on the list of Antenna TV affiliates. They are set to launch sometime the first week of January (I have seen 3 different dates between the 1st and 6th)

WHTM (27-2) should be your area's RTV affiliate.

Correct.. WHTM 27-2 is the RTN affiliate locally. WPMT 43-2 or 43-3 will be the Antenna TV affiliate here (and WPHL 17-2 will be the Antenna TV affiliate in Philly). Both networks will be showing old shows.

"Burns & Allen", "Three Stooges" and "Benny Hill" would be OK. Most of the others are either running on other channels or I don't care for (never could stand "Maude"). Don't remember "Farmer's Daughter". Only watched "Hazel" a few times. Somebody's been running some of the Stooges lately, IFC I think.

I think he was talking to me.. as I am in that market (Harrisburg/Lancaster, PA). I already knew when it was going live here, though.

I need helping adding channel to my antenna line up (ota)
new channels are added and I can't figure out how to receive them.
example (Philly) I get channel 17-1 and 17-2. Now channels 17-3 and 17-4 is currently up and running. Tried to rescan but its not working. Do I have to tell Directv they added new channels, so they can add them to the list.
