I know this development isn't directly related to our DMA (other than areas around Lincoln, Petersburg, even within a few miles north of Springfield, etc. that can also receive Peoria channels), but have any of you heard about this big development that will be coming to Peoria as early as Monday? Quincy Media (WEEK-25.1's new owners) have bought the ABC and CW affiliations from WHOI and Sinclair (although WEEK has the JSA with WHOI since 2009). Starting Monday ABC and CW will move to new WEEK subchannels (ABC-25.2, CW-25.3), although 19.1 and 19.2 will continue for 60 more days. Sinclair is now left with WYZZ and whatever shell of WHOI is left.

Especially with the repack/spectrum auction looming (and WICS and WRSP needing new channels below 30 on the Springfield side of the market), how much longer before our DMA sees something similar involving most likely Sinclair and WICS/D, WRSP/WCCU, and WBUI. Perhaps with: WICS 20.1 in Springfield (with a new RF channel below 30 or move to RF 22 if it can still get a city-grade signal into Decatur from Mechanicsburg), Fox 20.2, and CW 20.3 (and possibly subchannels on the chopping block). Then in Champaign, WCCU 27.1 (RF 26) Fox, 27.2 ABC from WICS, and 27.3 CW. Anyone seeing that scenario playing out in a few years in our market?

Hi all,

In the last few weeks I am not getting WCIA in HD OTA. Not even 16:9.

Is there a problem with it?


Thanks

The new subchannels are now on the air. They are as follows:
WCIA 3.3 Bounce
WCIA 3.4 Grit
WCIX 49.3 Escape
WCIX 49.4 Laff

Enjoy!

Thanks but I am very disappointed. I wanted Bounce on WCIX for their comedies. I live in Chatham and can not receive WCIA. I had been excited about the possibility of getting Bounce.

Escape is garbage about murder and killing. Grit is garbage too with violence and shooting. I do not like anything on Laff either.

I like the older comedies on Me TV and Antenna TV.
