Heroes & Icons has a website now: http://handitvnetwork.com/

According to the website, they have an affiliate in Lubbock listed as K44GL 44.1, but this station is actually in located in Plainview. They also have K49GT 49.1 listed in Abilene but that station is actually in Snyder. Both are owned by Ramar.

Hopefully Ramar will stick Heroes & Icon on one of their stations here in Lubbock soon.

Taked to chief engineer Friday Kcbd has a one panel no gain side mount at the 500 ft level on main Ramar tower. Primary transmitter now relocated to Ramar xmtr bldg pushing 4kw. Probably 3kw with cable line loss. Finalizing plans to purchase land on East 4th street to relocate transmitter and erect a 800 ft. Tower. Goal is the February 2016 rating period

I seen a commercial on METV today- It was one of those that says you may lose your cable signal for some OTA stations. I wasnot really watching it closely but MOVIES is moving to 14.3 and there are some more stations (maybe 2 or 3) coming including ESCAPE. I will watch it more closely now that I know what to look for.

I saw the commercial here at bit ago. It said that MOVIES! was moving to 48-3 and Jewelry TV was moving to 14-5 on July 1. The other channels it had listed was LAFF, Buzzr and Escape. I'm not 100% sure of the channel listings but I think it said LAFF would be on 14-2, Buzzr on 14-3 and Escape on 14-4. I can't recall what it said would be going on 48.2 to replace MOVIES! moving to 48-3.

You beat posting the above changes,just seen the the commercial again. The commercial is fast and contain a lot of info.HITV, I Think is going to be on 14.4 Ive never heard of Laff Buxxr before. Kinda strange Ch 11 is not picking up Escape since it is a companion to GRIT.

I got a better look at that commercial during the episode of Wonder Woman this evening. Ramar is picking up Laff, Buzzr, Escape and Heroes & Icons.

Below is the list starting July 1 (according to what they showed on screen during the commercial):

14-2 Laff (new)
14-3 Buzzr (new)
14-4 Escape (new)
14-5 Jewelry TV (moving from 14-2)

48-1 MeTV (no change)
48-2 Heroes & Icons (new)
48-3 Movies! (moving from 48-2)

They probably stuck it on 48-5, for now, until they rearrange things for the big debut on Wednesday.

While logged into your account and looking at the Lubbock HDTV page, you should see an edit button under every post you have submitted about a quarter of the way in on the right side of the page. I don't think you have to fill out the "reason for editing" part but I usually do just to point out my mistakes.

48-3 Movies! (moving from 48-2)

All of the channels are here as promised but not in the actual channel assignments they said on the commercial. Escape is showing up on 14-3 and Buzzr TV is showing up on 14-4. H&I is showing up on 46-2 and Movies! is still on 48.2.

I am sure they are still playing around trying to get things fixed. Hopefully everything will be set up correctly later this evening.
