GRITtv did NOT launch here in Lubbock at 11:00 AM CDT (Noon EDT) on KCBD. In fact, 11.3 isn't showing up over the air. They still have NBC on 11.1 and This TV on 11.2 at this time.

Someone asked about the channel earlier this morning on the KCBD's Facebook page. Someone at the station responded with "we are waiting on some equipment to come in to allow us to add GRITtv to our lineup. Our apologies for not having it sooner. I will check on the status and get back with you today."

Update: KCBD added another reply on their Facebook page for the viewer who asked about GRITtv:

"Wanted to follow-up with you. I wish I had better news. We are looking at approximately a couple weeks at a minimum."

Just a couple of quick notes:

KBZO-LD 51.2 is gone. The stations no longer shows up on scans. It's been that way for well over a month now. It was affiliated with LATV.

KNKC 29.2 is apparently gone as well. It was on and off a few weeks ago with just a blank screen. It's no longer showing up on scans. According to the DTV America website, the station is a DrTV affiliate but they were showing The Worship Network overnight.

KCBD 11.3 is still not on the air yet. Hopefully they will get on the air soon. They are suppose to pick the new GRIT channel. Last report was they were waiting on some equipment to get the new channel on the air.

K13ZQ-LD still hasn't gone to air yet. They do have an active license to broadcast. The owner said months ago they were having some issues getting on the air and were working on it.

The First Baptist Church of Lubbock's low powered television station is no longer on the air. KGLR-LP 30 was affiliated with Cornerstone. It appears the station's license was cancelled by the Federal Communications Commission on August 7, 2014 for failure to file a renewal application. The station was analog and never broadcast a digital signal.

Thank goodness, all we need is more sub-channels to degrade the main HD channel further.

Is this new equipment being made and shipped from China? Geez KCBD knew the channel from coming and was to debut on Aug. 18th. Nothing like not being prepared!

Apparently Raycom isn't in a hurry to get the station on the air.

KCBD 11.3 Grit is broadcasting as of 7:30 p.m. Saturday evening. I've been out of town the last couple of days. I was flipping around and notice 11.3 was showing up on my television now.

KBZO-LD 51.2 is finally showing back up on air. It's still affiliated with LATV.

KNKC-LD 29.2 is still dead in the water. It's still not being picked up on scans. It's suppose to be a DrTV affiliate.

K13ZQ-LD still hasn't gone to air yet and it doesn't look like they are in any hurry to do so.

I noticed Mako Communications signed a deal with Luken Communications to carry their channels in several markets including some new channel called Rev'n. I'm wondering if K24GP-LP here in Lubbock will be on the list. They don't broadcast in digital yet. They are still on analog carrying HSN.

So far we have 22 digital channels here in Lubbock as of November 2014:
5.1 - PBS
5.2 - Create
11.1 - NBC
11.2 - This TV
11.3 - Grit
13.1 - CBS
14.1 - My Network TV
14.2 - Jewelry TV
16.1 - God's Learning Channel
22.1 - CW
22.2 - My Network TV
22.3 - Telemundo
28.1 - ABC
29.1 - Estrella TV
32.1 - FOX News Now
32.2 - WeatherNation
34.1 - FOX
34.2 - FOX News Now
46.1 - Telemundo
48.1 - MeTV
51.1 - Univision
51.2 - LATV

Thx for the update. I'd like to see KLBK & KAMC add some sub channels like the new CBS "Decades" debuting next year!

KLBK has had some technical difficulties, off the air for about 24 hours except on Suddnelink.

Operating at reduced power now.

My OTA picture is better this am.


Yesterday lots of pixellation - signal too weak even with my old CM4228.
