Well, there is a Columbia and a Charleston thread, so I thought I would start a Florence /M.B. thread since hopefully things are going to pick up soon.
The current DTV channels available in our area are as follows:
WBTW-DT 56 CBS (SD only) Florence
WLTX-DT 17 CBS Columbia
WRLK-DT 32 PBS Columbia (very difficult to receive and not reliable)
WOLO-DT 8 ABC Columbia
Fayetteville PAX 36
NC PBS 25
Supposedly as of Nov. 1, Fox WFXB 18 and Sumter 38 WQHB are supposed to be on the air, but I haven't seen a signal yet. WPDE-DT 16 ABC and WWMB 20 UPN are supposed to be on by Dec 1. WIS-DT 41 in Columbia, which is NBC, is supposed to be up by Jan 1, 2003. PBS in Florence has a May 2003 deadline, but Hap said Sumter would be on by the end of the year but I haven't heard any new news concerning that.
We just got a new Best Buy. They have a large selection of HDTV's. I saw a 40" Panasonic LCD RPTV that had a really nice picture.
WBTW is still passing SD only and I am not sure when that will change. I cannot seem to get much feedback from the other stations, either.
Just hopeing to stimulate some discussion,
