    Weather.com. Problem solved. It would be nice if all digital subchannels went bye bye.

    I think that kind of depends on the programming being shown on the main (presumably HD) channel. Fast action (such as sports) generally needs to have higher bandwidth and really, it would be nice if the subchannels were turned off for that kind of programming. But other types of programming don't really need that much bandwidth to get a great picture, and at those times they could use the subchannels.

    Seems to me like that would be a reasonable compromise between people who want more OTA programming choices and the "picture connoiseurs" who only want the best HD picture possible and don't care about losing other programming options.

    Here in Watertown, NY, we do not have NBC. No NBC, no weather plus but when I'm at my summer residence that is considered Watertown area (15 miles west-northwest of here), I have been able to receive Syracuse, NY's NBC station with weather plus. That station includes the central part of NY from Cortland, NY all the way up to Watertown, NY. I just wish I could receive it OTA here in Watertown, NY. :-( :mad:
