The rep in the store also confirmed this, but said he would require management approval to refund $60 for the last 10 months we were charged the $6 fee. They always charge you for things they are not supposed to, and it is always a major hassle to get it corrected or adjusted. Which is quite aggravating.

with silver you get TBN,FamilyNET,Daystar also Familynet is showing classic tv shows from sony

and i seen on my cable bill where locals fee going to $5.00 with next month bill.
I still use my antenna for the local channels and the Charlotte channels. Which is why I resent being charged a fee for local broadcast through Charter. I only want cable for the specialty channels to supplement over the air. But they don't give you a choice or an opt out option for the local channels. And unfortunately the monthly fee is indeed going up to $5 next month.

After 5 months of poor signal WYCW 62 is back, what gives. Did it take them that long to fix something.

Could be weather related or summer conditions. Or perhaps your antenna placement at your location or amplifier issues. There is RF43, RF45, and RF47 close together which could cause tuner overload with an amp. I had to make adjustments on one TV due to this issue of interference with SCETV-49, WYCW-62, and WJZY-46 being close together. There was interference and pixelation on all 3 channels.

This is the third time in the last few weeks that I've wanted to watch something and it hasn't been in HD.

WYFF and WHNS need to dump MOBILE digital TV

I just saw someone else point out how the mobile DTV that was to be viewed OTA on cell phones and other mobile digital devices is DEAD technology, heck even WYFF no longer advertises it on their main channel....it is OBVIOUSLY an utter failure and there are no new mobile devices being made that offer the option.

I wonder if Doug is still around and would comment on how useless it is to still broadcast digital mobile TV when NOBODY is watching on their phone OTA???!!!!!!! Only a big waste of bandwidth that could be better used to serve the community.

I wish WYFF and WHNS would dump it so that they can both add an additional regular DT channel... Love to see WYFF 4 bring back Weather PLUS, speaking of which recently WSPA changed their weather branding to 24/7 Weather....well where IS their
24/7 Weather Channel, that to this day is STILL listed as being broadcast on WYCW 62.3????!!!!!!!!! See titan TV listings
for WYCW 62.3. It is still listed as 24/7 Weather. What gives?

I mean if you are going to brand your station as 24/7 Weather you should have a digital subchannel broadcasting a
Weather Channel 24/7, right.

It would be nice if they do way with the Mobile TV and add addition sub channels such as COZI TV and METV owners just debut a new digital channel called Hero & Icons read new at http://www.chicagotribune.com/busine...929-story.html

Of course the blackout rules will still apply in the NFL so not much has changed at least for the short term. It puts more pressure on the NFL to end blackout rules but they aren't obligated to.
