The 15th of September finds KLSV 50.1 gone. That's the Jewelry TV service offered locally by Biltmore. It will probably pop back up soon. KLSV 50.3 continues away, as usual.
KHMP-18 continues with their silent treatment. That took down America One, AMG, and TUFF diginets here in the valley.
The build-out of the sub-channels on KEEN-17 continues in a holding pattern. At one time KEEN was offering 5 sub-channels, but has withered to just three.
KHDF-CD 19 continues to billboard "for lease" on their dot 2, 3, and 4 sub-channels. With only one taker during the years they have offered these sub-channels, one must think they are asking too much in return for the audience size. It must also be noted that some tuners are not currently able to tune to the sub-channels offered by KHDF for reasons of something within their PSIP.
Mysteries continue in the wake of the Sinclair takeover of KSNV and the announced sell-off of either KVCW-33 or KVMY-21. What will become of the services and sub-channels of the sold-off station? And why did the FCC allow Sinclair to grow to such a huge corporation when they have such a very lackluster reputation. Palm greasing, perhaps? Who, if anyone, has nibbled at the soon to be abandoned station? Las Vegas being a sizeable market should bring a few bidders.
Both KVTE-35 and KGHD-38 are fighting the FCC clock. Will they actually transmit someday?
And what about the rebirth of KTUD-25? Will their owner, Mako, rebuild the transmitter site and bring that station back on the air? If so, will they rebrand to erase connection with the bankrupt KTUD of last year?
Wanting a strong FCC to say no to the Wireless lobby. Keep the tv broadcast band for ota television broadcasters.
