Not sure if reported yet but I just saw a commercial on WOWT that a new channel 6.3 is coming on Jab 18th.
It will be Antenna TV

Once again it is so sad that the TV stations just dont get it. A sub channel dot 3 or .3 or 6.3 will NEVER have guide data on Dishnetwork or Directv which means no one will ever watch it as they cant record anything nor will they know what is on.
These companies mad a business choice to NEVER have guide data for a dot 3 channel as they dont have data space, plus in most cities these are normally weather now or accuweather channels.
They put the Weather channel on 6.3 where no one needs guide data for that.
So sad.
Same issues for 3.3 and 42.3
I still cant watch Comet TV, I mean get the channel but I never know what is on as I go through the guide so I just never watch it. Same issues for DirecTV and Dishnetwork.
I hope the business paying for commercials time read this, as no one is watching their ADs.

I did a full scan, 6.3 is not up yet. Has to be soon.
What will 3.2 be? I thought they were Antenna TV.
So confusing when some do not have guide data.

Or they can check zap2it as was mentioned earlier. Also, not even close to EVERYONE has dish network or directv, so lots of people will still be able to see guide data through cox, watching over the air, etc (this coming from someone who has dish).

From what I read in another forum, 3.2 is going to become Escape TV, so 6.3 taking over AntennaTV makes sense.

I wonder why no mention on KMTV of the change?

it has been said the antenna tv signal will be onn Cox and Prism, so did wowt drop 6.2, or did cox cave in and will carry 2 subchannels from the same station?

6.3 mentions Antenna TV is coming on Monday the 18th

3.2 I bet becomes Escape

I would bet if there is ever a 7.3 it will likely be Heroes/Icons


since KETV will be only channel besides the yet to air 25.1 and KOHA 48.1 that don't have 2 subchannels.

cause 42.3 is Comet and 15.3 is Grit and 3.3 is Laff

still btw waiting for 25.1 to happen


DTV America is picking up a handful of low-power TV stations in the Upper Midwest from Three Angels Broadcasting Network as part of an 32-station, $3 million deal.

The regional Nebraska stations included are K26JQ-D Lincoln; K25MM-D Omaha;


DTV America operates the Minneapolis Telemundo affiliate and hold dozens of CP's for new LPTV stations in the Upper Midwest. (8/3/2015)

http://www.northpine.com


I am betting either Telemundo (since Omaha don't have a Spanish broadcast channel) and SonLife (since Hastings gets it already)

will be the channel and subchannel on 25.1 and 25.2 when they finally air it

I am at the end of my rope...

...trying to explain to Cox personnel what I mean by Antenna TV. Some guy on the phone thought I meant "TV you get with an antenna". Then some lady at NFM tried to convince me that Laff TV was just a new name for Antenna TV. I just want Cox to open up a new cable channel for Antenna TV so I can go back to getting it on my TiVo like before. How long must we wait for this to happen?

Just ask them about 6.3 if they don't know what AntennaTV is or misunderstanding that it got moved.

Charts show there are 123,000 Dish and Directv customers in this DMA.
All Directv and Dish receivers can add an over the air tuner via the USB port.
Yet for some reason WOWT put Antenna TV on 6.3 where there is no guide data on either Dish or Directv as they will only do the Dot 2 sub channels now for over the air guide data.
-
Please WOWT (I know you social media team reads these) , move Antenna TV to 6.2 where you have guide data on both Dish and Directv, move the weather to 6.3 we do not need guide data for weather.
With out guide data it is about impossible to watch or record your shows, which means advertisers are not getting their moneys worth on the ADs.

Ten years ago, I dropped Cox analog service and for the next few years just watched OTA HDTV. Anyway, when I went to cancel, the rep asked me why and I said "bought a new set and just want to watch HDTV". The rep, incredulous, said "but we have HGTV on channel 59" (or whatever number it was then).

Cox Ch. 121 is dark

The programming that was on Cox Ch. 121 is now on Cox Ch. 6. I wonder if this means Cox will open 121 to Antenna TV? WOWT Weather is on 120 so that would make sense.

HDTV bad move of the year award . . . Forgot about guide data.
-
Well now you can watch it as you also have Guide Data on Cox. Lucky.
Try watching AntennaTV 6.3 on DirecTV or Dish Network. We all have USB over the air tuners but because they put it on a Dot 3 channel there is no guide data. Only the Dot 1 and Dot 2 (6.1 and 6.2) channels have guide data.
I still cant figure out why WOWT did not put the channel on 6.2 moving the weather channel to 6.3 where no one needs guide data.
Bad choice. I post this so those paying for Advertising on 6.3 will know its hard to watch something with out guide data. You should ask for a discount on your advertising price for 6.3 as many thousands on Directv and Dish (about 1 /4 if you count dishes on houses and 100% in rural areas) will have a hard time watching 6.3

read something about a new station coming to either Omaha or Lincoln


called KAJS-LD 33.1 or something




I was wondering if anyone had any info on it and what will air on it




be nice if Omaha gets that station since K25MM-D has been dead


ever since DTV America bought 25.1 a couple years back (see post 9761 on here)

http://rabbitears.info/market.php?re...n=kajs#station

right now its off the air but they have a construction permit for 15kw looks like about 1/2 way between Omaha and Lincoln
http://rabbitears.info/contour.php?appid=2001950&map=Y
It shows Bounce on the -2

The thing of note is these DTV America stations Trip gets the network affiliations from the actual site. As example in Minneapolis there is suppose to be a DTV America station that will have Bounce, Escape and Laff. But that station too is not on the air

I wonder if Omaha will get the station since it half way between Omaha and Lincoln



cause we don't get 8, 10 or 12 or it's subchannels from Lincoln in the Dundee/Benson areas of Omaha

and 15 and 42 is hit and miss in mid town at times

Probably will in Omaha, since it's right out by the outlet mall in Gretna. Much closer to Omaha than Lincoln. Interesting that the city of license is Lincoln, though...

NEBRASKA:
New low-power TV station KWBE-LD/21 (Beatrice) is due to sign on Monday (4/4) at 6 p.m., according to an article on the station's website.




It'll be the third independent local TV news station operated by Flood Communications under the News Channel Nebraska branding.


Other NCN stations, in Norfolk and Columbus, fill most of their schedule with a loop of local news, weather, and sports, with some broadcasts of community events.




WeatherNation TV runs on subchannels. In the Beatrice area, Flood also owns KWBE/1450 (Beatrice), KGMT/1310 (Fairbury), and KUTT/99.5 (Fairbury). The company also has construction permits for new low-power TV stations in Grand Island and Hastings/Kearney, in addition to its other radio holdings in Omaha, Nebraska City, and Norfolk. (4/3/2016)
