I like METV and Antenna TV. No station around here carries Cozi TV. Movies is expected to debut in Charlotte after FOX takes over WJZY/WMYT in July.

I agree, I don't like the format Movies! is broadcasting in, I guess I could shoot them a email stating so. As you said some commercials are OK and AntennaTV and METV don't seem to have this problem.
Note I'm not sure this is the best forum to discuss this, my guess is a moderator may end up moving it to a more appropriate forum, maybe the CECB forum???

I shot them a email, although I'm not sure it went through. After sending it I just got a white screen and nothing else.......

FOX has already taken over the stations. July 1st is the network switch when FOX moves to WJZY and The CW move to WCCB.

I would like to see KMBC/KCWE/KSHB/KMCI and Fox4kc add a second/more Digital Sub Channels like maybe RTN/TNN/The Cool TV/Soul of the South/My Family Net/Weathernation/the Cool TV,a Shopping Channel and so on. KCTV5 add some, Bounce TV taken off to be annouced 2013 and be added to KC Cable Systems so KSMOTV can add more to then. IONSHOP add to KC area. Live Well Network to Surewestkc. Ion Life and Qubo Surewestkc and Comcast.

I am getting 29.2 OTA - Fox movies, in the Phila. area. I just did an update for WMC (Win 7) and in the guide I see 29.2 & am able to watch it over my computer (live TV). Manual recording does work. I can watch it via my TV. Does anyone here get guide data for easier recording? TIA
the channel launched Memorial day

I get the Fox affiliate in Detroit, 2.2. TitanTV has guide data for it, and the station delivers EPG to my TV (PSIP).

Thanks a lot JohnS-MI I tried titan per your suggestion but no joy here ... I guess I just have to wait for the morons that run the local FOX station to get their act together.

I have no PSIP or Tribune guide info here in Minneapolis either, Tivo said it could be a few days and PSIP is up to my local My/FOX channel.

I kind of remember METV going through this when they 1st aired.

Aspect ratio was everywhere!!

Don't bother to knock- is on again it looks full screen.1st time was black lines on the sides.
The commercials are on now......I have seen full screen on everything 3 ad's in a row--Full Screen LOL!!
