Escape will be added to KVVU 5.2 soon, according to the following article. http://www.tvnewscheck.com/article/8...0soG0.facebook

Not sure what will happen to Weather 24/7. It could move to 5.3, or disappear.

What, if anything, does this announcement have to do with Fox BUZZR launching soon on many Fox owned stations.

For Las Vegas, Spring always seems to arrive earlier than in the rest of the nation. This Spring shapes up to be a very busy launch period for several diginets. Among them are LAFF, BUZZR, and DECADES. Other diginets, such as Escape, Grit, Heroes & Icons continue to hammer out affiliate contracts as they reach further and further into the heartland of the nation.

Looking at the sub-channel capacity and sub-channel availabilities in Las Vegas seems to indicate there is plenty of expansion room. KSNV-3, KLAS-8, KLVX-10, KVCW-33, and KBLR-39 seems to be tapped dry. It doesn't appear likely they will crowd another sub-channel onto their transmitters.

Those local stations that do have sufficient room for additional sub-channels are many. Full power KVVU will add Escape very soon to their 5.2, and then could mover their weather 24/7 service over to 5.3, or use that space for some other network. KTNV is sitting on their 13.2 presntly with an ABC SD feed, which is thought by some to be aplaceholder for the ABC LAFF network coming soon. KINC-15 could add a 15.3 once again if they find a network partner thatis a good match for themselves. KVMY-21 has plenty of room for additional subs; perhaps four. Dare I dream future home for Decades, Buzzr, Justice. I believe that full power KBLR-39 is maxxed, but could squeeze in a fourth feed from some needy network.

The LPTV stations are wide open for additional subs. KEEN-17 dropped back to just their main channel recently, thus making room for a potential 7 sebs. KHMP-18 could revitalize their signal by adding subs on the dot 2 through dot 8. KHDF-19 could replace their "for lease" signs on their subs for an additional 3 programmed channels. KLVD-23 could add subs on their dot 3 and dot4 easily. KELV-27 could pump up their services with the addition of networks on their dot2 and dot 3 without affecting their HD dot one feed. KVPX-28 has the potential of adding 7 additional subs ( or simulcasts of Swaggart). KEGS-30 might add a dot 7 and a dot 8. KNBX-31has potential for networks to be added to their dot5 through dot 8. K41IO-41 has the room, if not the ambition, to add subs to their dot 2 through dot 8. K43FO has room for one more sub-channel on their dot 8. And finally, KLSV-50 has potential to add subs to their .4 through dot 8.

Then there's the dark horses still in the digital game. Those are KVTE-35 and KGHD-38. Will they ever transmit a digital signal? When and what?

In a selfish way, I'd like to see KGNG flip the switch to their channel 26 transmitter and use the virtual display function to place 3 or 4 of the currently channel 48 subs on channel 26. That move would place a couple of respected diginets down nearer to the main body of high caliber programming, and away from the religious channels now associated with higher channel numbers (except for KBLR-39)

Retro doesn't often add programs to their schedule, seemingly only informercials.. The next major event for the Luken network is the addition of Police Surgeon airing weeknights in two half hour back to back episodes from 7 - 8 pm on KGNG 47.4.

Estrellaon KSNV 3.2 must be lost. Al least Sinclair doesn't seem to know upon which channel Estrella broadcasts. Yesterday I spotted yet another station ID for the KSNV 3.2 sub-channel for Estrella point out that they air on KVCW 33.2. WRONG!

The pixelation issues on KVMY 21.1 and 21.2 seem to have resolved themselves.

KVCW 33.2 this morning during Cougar Town had plenty of issues. These issues were an anotomation system that didin't seem to know what should come next or what just aired. Because of the early hour, 4 am, I doubt there was more than one person in master control. And they were probably monitoring the other 7 sub-channels under Sincalirs thumb in Vegas.

The Las Vegas KMCC-34 5kw retransmitter seems to be still down. The only signal I sniff from Cranston must be from Dolan Springs, but is not sufficient to display a signal.

MiCasa remains missing from KGNG 47.2. MiCasa reappeared by primetime Wednesday evening.

The non-essential video of Coyote on KEGS 30.6 has been absent for several days.

I've yet to discover anyone in the Vegas Valley that can receive KPVM-46 from Pahrump. There signal is puny, even for a LPTV station, pumping out 5kw only. Yet this small town station is attempting to do things well by providing 4 channels of entertainment. Their 46.1 Airs a local Pahrump newscast at 5 pm, and plenty of inexpensive to acquire programming for the majority of the dayparts. This includes an overnight dosage of Arts, which I assume to be Classic Arts Showcase.

Up the sub-channels on their dot 2, KPVK Airs THIS TV The dot 3 airs The Family Channel with their blend of inexpensive programming. KPVM 46.4 is home in Pahrump for DrTV, a relatively new diginet focused on health and fitness.

Even if KPVM were transmitting at max LPTV power, their signal could only reach a smattering of Vegas people. Therfore, my desire is for an existing Vegas station to retransmit 46.1, 46.3, and 46.4 into the Vegas Valley. The Vegas station would use the virtual channel designation of KPVM channel 46 assignment, thus keeping their identlity. The Vegas station and KPVM would share the expense burden of adding STL equipment to pump the signal to the Vegas transmit site. KPVM would benefit from a much wide audience and probable more advertising dollars, while the Vegas station could simply charge KPVM a fee for local carriage.

This seems like a good match up for Mako's KVPX-28, or Biltmore's KLSV-50.

KEGS 30.4 lost the video to Rev'n, and is presenting the network audio in a solo this weekend.

Sinclair, or their KSNV puppet, continues to anger viewers by pre-empting the great programming of GET TV with ASN sports broadcasts. I really don't have anything against the ASN games, only their placement on sub-channels not intended for sports. Locally, Sinclair and KSNV should not have games on 3.3. Let the movies flow from GET TV. They should pre-empt the minimal schedule of KVCW 33.1 and KVCW 33.2, until such time as Sinclair authorizes their Las Vegas O&O stations to launch a seperate sub-channel dedicated to their ASN games.

Yeah, Cranstons' three channels on KMCC are still absent in the Valley. Maybe Sinclair should work out a management agreement with Cranston. No, wait. That's two negatives working together.

Checking the Las Vegas Valley ota dial today, you'd probably be correct in assuming that the Fools are out one day early. Eleven of our sub-channels are non-functioning for various reasons. KHMP 18.2, 18.3, 18.4; KHDF 19.2, 19.3, 19.4; KEGS 30.4; KNBX 31.4; are KMCC 34.1, 34.2, 34.3 are all less than great examples of local television today. Where's the station owners and engineers?
