Never count The Cool down and out. They've had there roller coaster ride of affiliate counts in the past, as have other diginets.


This afternoon I was monitoring KPVT 2.3 and KHMP 18.2 until they both disappeared. Hopefully they both shall return, and maybe with additional sub-channels. Just after 8 pm, both stations are back, but without additional sub-channels.

It's is my opinion that any station that nibbles on the incentive auction should immediately forfeit their license, with no pay-out, as it goes against the "In the public interest" of a tv license. Selling out in the auction only benefits the shareholders of the stations at the expense of giving the middle finger to the public. Keep the tv broadcast band for ota television broadcasters. We need a strong FCC to say no to the Wireless lobby.

Audio was still missing this morning on Liquidation Channel KLSV 50.4, and the audio on NewsMax KNBX 31.2 was very garbled. Several of the KPVT-2 and KHMP-18 subs have low audio levels, making them difficult to watch and listen to.

ACTION on KHMP 18.2 is strobing badly, making it difficult to follow a story line.

TUFF promised to return to Las Vegas after last weeks disappearance from KHMP 18.2. They followed through on that promise today, being restored to KHMP 18.2. So now there's the question of will ACTION find a new Las Vegas home in the near future?

Audio levels seem better today on KPVT-2 and KHMP-18.

Evine is another shopping channel very likely headed to Las Vegas soon. If it is headed this way, it could land on KEGS, as one possibility.

Here's the Evine site: http://www.evine.com/

For the past few days, HOT on KNBX 31.4 has encountered issue after issue. Programs are freezing, not running the posted schedule, etc.

KPVT-2 and KHMP-18 have stalled out, it seems, from bringing the remainder of promised networks to the Vegas airwaves.

KGNG-47 has a CP to move to channel rf 26 from rf 48. The time table of the move is yet unknown to viewers.

KVTE-35 analog plays word games with the FCC. I've not seen a signal from them in many moons.

The four subs of KLSV-50 joined the missing three subs of KMCC-34 today. KLSV will bounce back soon, but I don't expect to see KMCC for weeks or maybe months.

Rumors just in that another shopping diginet will probably land in Vegas. Will it be QVC Plus, Evine, or some other? Stay tuned with your credit cars handy.

Antenna TV has mentioned they are considering launch a second classic network. The original could continue with the same shows now under their belt, while the new, if launched, network could be more focused on newer series to attract a younger audience. No mention of a name for ANT2, but I like Millennial.

KNBX 31.4 HOT has encountered numerous times of blank screens where their server doesn't start or finish a program. The same epiosdes keep repeating at random, not following the posted schedule. These are not only mu observations, but also from at least one other forum member. Unless you are monitoring KNBX 31.4 Las Vegas in New York, then how would you be aware of the situation, I politely request.
