Thanks for the recommendation. I'll tell my brother to try the mohu leaf antenna.

Just curious if the station staff has ever made any public pronouncements.
I am unaware of any official statements, but a number of years back an employee explain to me, that they were concern about lowering the quality of their HD signal with a sub channel on WIVB and question whether another retro type channel would get much viewership considering how many other channels with similar programming were available in the area. Also WNLO although broadcasting in 1080i, much of the programing on the CW was really in a 720p format and the quality of the video was less affected by the sub-channel. Now that was a number of years back and unofficial, so whether their reasoning has change, I don't know, but you can contact WIVB and ask them.

Not that it matters a whole lot thanks to that useless, duplicated religious station from the southtowns on the same RF channel (15) as CHCH, blocking reception for most here;

Abundant OTA television is what makes this country different from all others. Lets keep it this way. If you like Wi-Fi so much, OTA fits right in. After all, it is wireless.

WUTV and WNYO showing ROH wrestling on TWC and OTA instead of regular programming. Subchannels unaffected.

It's probably a last minute schedule change.

I just checked wutv and wnyo and both channels are showing normal programming. I can't check ota because I don't have an antenna.
