I emailed WRGB last week to see what the deal was with getting their HD to TWC. Here is the response I got:
Thanks for writing. WRGB is obligated to provide an
over-the-air signal in digital (and HD when available). We've been
doing that since July (digital) and September (HD) on channel 39. Time
Warner Cable can retransmit our digital signal to its subscribers, but only if it has an agreement with us for retransmission. Currently, there is no
agreement, but the terms are being discussed. The final agreement for
any retransmission will be negotiated, and/or approved, by the corporate
offices of both T-W and WRGB, not the local managers. I wish I could
tell you when T-W will be able to carry out signal, but right now it's up in
the air. Our digital & HD programming is available though, at no cost, to
anyone who has a digital receiver and a uhf antenna.
I wish I had a more definite answer for you. We're working on the T-W
thing, and hopefully we'll be able to reach an agreement.
