Lansing, MI is now in testing!


'Bout time!

Thanks for the news Alan. Is 18 testing also? That's the only one I wonder if they'll carry in HD or not.

I just noticed this morning that we've got the CW Network on Channel 14 for the Jonesboro, AR Locals.

I can't check right now, but I want to say I saw an 18, but don't get your hopes, because I could easily be mistaken.

Is that the DNS feed out of Washington, D.C. or a local feed?!

SD or HD?!

I'd keep that antenna up... you never know when it's going to come in handy.

Here's the link - you can get all the information:

The very first post of that TPN Map Thread contains an Excel that will give you complete details on each and every channel you have (in some cases, 'Will Have'!)

Congratulations

I used to have that link handy, and forgot about it. I thought maybe it wasn't posted any more. Appreciate it.

Yep! My thanks go out to gct for posting the link to the information... :)

Indeed... Pittsburgh was the LARGEST market to not have The CW in HD via DirecTV. Cincinnati, OH (DMA #35) is now the largest market without it.

Looking at how long the Duluth, etc locals were in test, I don't think we can expect them any sooner than say, middle of November. I'm waiting myself so I feel your pain!

Noticed WMFP (62) in Boston is in HD today. The unusual thing is that it is on channel 42.

This leaves WSBK (38)MNT and WBPX (68)ION as the only ones not in HD. Of course we do have IONEHD.

Would be nice to get a few .2's. At least we could get Retro TV, MEtv and Thistv.
I have two METV's in the market and can't receive either one over the air.
Directv since 1996
HD since 2001

CW HD in Montgomery, Alabama is now live on channel 22. I was surprised such a small market as ours got it and how quickly. The local channel itself just went HD about a month ago.
