CBS was on 80/81, NBC on 82/82, ABC on 86/87, and FOX, 88/89.

Consider the amount of people that eligible for them, I think it sort of makes sense for them to stick them farther down the Guide.

However, what I'm referring to is on a market by market basis.

If you'd look at the locals list, you'd see that multiple smaller markets have the PBS DNS feed on 389 mapped down to channel #65.

I'm just saying, why not go farther?!

I wonder why they didn't place the Ions together? 346 and 347?

I think Ion East was there prior to an Ion West, wasn't there?!

Personally, I feel they are out of place in the 34x range. Ion East isn't too out of place, but Ion West should be moved.

If I had the ability to, I might move AXS TV to #325 and just move Ion West to #306.

Another consideration, I'd maybe move it to #262 and #263 perhaps. #263 is some shopping channel stuck out of place, and SoapTV (#262) is not long for this world (it turned into Disney, Jr.).

I just checked the Android, iPhone, and iPad apps:

ANDROID: Ion East is the only one gone.
iPHONE: All of them are there.
iPAD: BBCA, NGW, and Ion East are gone.

The Android app was showing BBCA gone previously.

Strange how they're all different. NGW is the only channel I want from the list in case anyone was wondering.

I see...

I just assumed she was in the dog house, and you were disappointed at reading about BBCA as it stopped some sort of cruel and unusual punishment you were enacting that involved a lack of BBCA! ;)

You have an overactive imagination. :D

Given that HD really pertains to delivering a much more entertaining image and sound presentation of material.

What's the real appeal to watching instructional and training shows on home construction, improvement and repair, which is what DIY is about, in HD?

Granted you don't want poor picture and sound quality, but isn't what the various programs teach on DIY far more important than the PQ its presented in for those interested in this channel?

So where are all the Nat Geo Wild fans who can't wait for lions and tigers and bears in HD?


Oh my!

FAITH: I find the lack of it disturbing.

Opinions are my own but should be those of all Americans, who would be much better off intellectually, psychologically, and emotionally if that were the case.
