If you're referring to 8-1, then yes. It comes in fairly well, depending on what's being shown. From what I seen it's a split of Look TV & Youtoo America.
Look TV programs typically have a clear signal. While Youtoo America signal is dependent on the program being shown.

This idea would be worth a shot. This would be kinda like how CBS is on 6-1 & 45-3

As for my Ch 14 signal I managed to find a way around my "standing" problem. I tried moving my antenna one foot towards me, and turning it halfway between my main signal & Ch14 signal.
My main signals came in perfect. While Ch14 came in good 7-8/10 depending on which station 14-1, 14-2, etc. The only problem is I need to adjust my living room layout to accommodate
the change. Well at least it's forward progress.

Jesse Jackson...(no, not THAT Jesse Jackson) is at the helm of WNCE ("LookTV"). He appears to have become complacent about his 24/7 color bars on 8.2 It was over 1 yr ago that he reported being "network shopping"... which apparently didn't go too well.

Yeah, both those stations acting as "repeaters" to each other (although nobody in the WYBN viewing area [if there really IS one]) would give a hoot about Saratoga news... is a nice dream, but not likely to happen.

I haven't noticed any signal variation between his services. When a YooToo program comes on, it's just as watchable as a LookTV program. Anyway, it's still too bad he's got all those "blank" sub-channels.

For awhile they ran a looped infomercial for the Hole In The Woods ranch for special needs kids on 8.2. I watched 2 minutes of it once. The colorbars are about the same entertainment value.

WTEN is dropping weather from its .2 and replacing it with GetTV in the next couple of days, according to the Times Union's Pete Dougherty. It's about time they dropped that outdated weather channel.

According to Pete, the change will happen after a basketball game that's airing tomorrow afternoon at noon (a Fox game WXXA can't air because of its telethon), but my Tivo is showing the GetTV programming starting at 6:30 Monday morning. Monday probably makes sense since it's the first of the month, when a contract would likely start, but keep an eye out for it tomorrow afternoon, I guess.

Some bonus information for you: After the basketball game Sunday, WTEN 10.2 will get rid of the weather channel and change into a GetTV affiliate. GetTV is a new movie-centric network from Sony Pictures Television.

Kind of disappointing GETTV is already available on Dish - but Westerns and old movies are less interesting to me than sitcoms.

Good question. TWC currently carries the weather 10.2, but because it's changing format from weather to entertainment, I believe that gives TWC the option to end the carriage agreement and drop the channel.

I have TWC - and Get is on 10-2, the old WTEN weather station. So it looks like cable and/or OTA for this.

10-2 was showing GetTV programming last night around 11:30PM on both cable & OTA.

The onscreen channel guide did state GetTV next to the channel number. But it reverted back to old listing, the programming stayed the same though.

I will check later for any updates after 6:30 AM.
_________________________Update___

Looks like OTA listing info is a little more complete the last time I looked.

But it's a new channel, which is a win.

Always happy for real programming. I never minded having the weather info available on TV, but with instant info on cell phones now it's really overlap. But if they did a 10.4 with just weather data, that would be nice. For goodness sake though, that dang music they looped would have to go!
