There are stations out there doing 3 HDs in MPEG-2, though I haven't heard any discussions on what the picture quality is like. One of the stations that experimented with it (WTRF) has since gone back to an HD and 2 SDs while running dual HD for those two feeds on an LPTV station, but I think there are at least four others out there doing it. (KTUZ, KUVI, KCEN, and KBMT.)

Wilm & cbs

I just moved to OIB from Raleigh and with what ATMC charges for cable I went OTA. Even with a fringe antenna I can't receive WILM. I get the other Wilmington channels with no problems so I hope CBS does move to another station.

Right now I've got the CBS All Access to go along with Playstation Vue (for the cable channels) and Netflix, Hulu & Amazon. Also Acorn as the wife likes the old British mysteries. If CBS can move to another station then I'll save some money by dropping All Access.

It's strange that I can usually receive Charleston channels and sometimes Jacksonville channels but not WILM. Go figure.

WILM is low powered (15kw) versus the other stations that are full power

On Jan 1 CBS is moving to WWAY if I recall

Here is the coverage for WILM
