    CLTV in HD

    http://weblogs.cltv.com/news/local/chicago/2009/08/cltv_in_hd.html

    CLTV is now produced in HD from the studios of WGN-TV. Look for a future launch of CLTV HD in your area, and call your cable operator to ask for CLTV in HD.

    it's odd how they say call your cable operator? does that mean that comcast only is over? OTA launch coming soon?

    direct tv should pick this up at least in Chicago area and maybe nationwide as well.

    comcast does not have this and cltv is shared with csn+ and csn + HD just has a looping help video (not in real HD) when csn + is not live. seems odd that comcast does not have it as they do have a slot for it.

    is the old link for cltv not able to hd?

    csn + and csn + HD is on direct tv.

    Most if not all regional news channels such as CLTV have little to no chance of getting on DirecTV. For one thing, they're distributed via fiber-optic or microwave links, which means their owners aren't even required to offer them to DirecTV or Dish Network (unlike most regional sports networks such as Comcast SportsNet Chicago, which are distributed via satellite).

    I note that they say "call your cable operator" and not "call your cable or satellite provider," which is more common these days for channels that could be on satellite.

    how about the chance of being on direct tv in the Chicago area only?

    maybe wgn should dump LA TV and put cltv in it's place on OTA.

    They wouldn't have to dump anything, just add another subchannel. Of course they shoulda, coulda done it a long time ago.

    Now there web site has this

    CLTV on other cable, satellite and video systems
    Watch for additional announcements on how you can watch CLTV in Chicagoland, or call your video provider and request CLTV.

    also it is on RCN cable now / or very soon so comcast only is over.
