    MeTV ran an ad saying they were changing their channel # on DT in the Seattle area from 12 to 45. Any reason for this and would another station move to channel 12?

    The stations were sold to MeTV's owners Weigel, so they're moving the primary MeTV affiliation for Seattle to KFFV since KVOS's signal only makes it to the northern suburbs of Seattle. No idea what's happening to KVOS, but if it's like what Weigel did in LA earlier this month, they might switch that to Heroes & Icons.

    EDIT: Just checked the schedule, KVOS is switching to Heroes & Icons on Wednesday

    You were correct. Heroes and Icons now on KVOS12 and MeTV on KFFV45. Only issue is the guide data for KFFV45 is wrong, it shows all movies. Never watched Heroes and Icons before. Any idea how often they change their programming?

    When the station provides updated Guide data, it should update right away.

    Actually in this case it's slightly more complicated.
    Prior to a few days ago this was KFFV's setup for their first 2 subchannels:
    .1 Evine Live
    .2 Azteca
    Now it switched to this:
    .1 MeTV
    .2 Movies!

    What DirecTV (and Dish) carried on channel 45 in Seattle prior to a few days ago was Azteca via KFFVDT2, now they switched to carrying MeTV via KFFV's main channel. Gracenote/TMS actually already has the correct listings for them, so DirecTV has to adjust their guide data for channel 45 to use the listings for the main KFFV channel instead of the listings for KFFVDT2.

    Since it's a a major market like Seattle, they'll probably notice it and fix it soon if they haven't already.
