That's weird. Time to get a new setup for OTA I guess.

Apologies ahead of time, as I didn't see a Frontier thread for Hartford and/or Connecticut here:

It looks like Frontier took away the New York City major stations this morning. Channels 2, 4, 5, 7, 9 and 11 are all gone, both SD and HD. Granted, my relative's service is in Hartford County, so I know they weren't technically supposed to get them to begin with. Just last night, I was watching channel 7 (ABC) in HD to see the New York Lottery Numbers/Win 4 drawings.

A friend of mine in Bristol has Frontier. Since his service started, he only got PBS channels 13 from Newark/NYC and PBS channel 50 from Montclair, NJ.

That's very interesting, as the duplicate channels are all listed on their channel lineup for CT. Cable and satellite don't provide NYC channels to the Hartford area, so AT&T and Frontier were going above and beyond there. I wonder if it's the first of a series of cost-cutting moves on the channel lineup. It's too bad, as that's the major differentiator for IPTV- the sheer number of channels available.

Exclamation

What was strange was the cable service a friend of mine in Stratford had once. Despite being just over the Housatonic River from Milford, he didn't get channel 8 or 59 from New Haven. Odd, huh?
