hmm looks like the SEC Network is hitting even the smallest of smallest cable providers lol! Northland Communications put out a notice about it being added in SD and HD in Texas along with the LHN in SD and HD which I though was odd because I thought their systems didn't have room for more HD channels let alone 2 HD channels lol! and they may even be adding the SD channels in analog the legal notice only mentioned channel numbers and not if they are going to be digital only.
On or after August 14, 2014, the following channels will be added to: Corsicana, Crockett, Marble Falls: SECNetwork to 75, SECNetwork HD to 453, Longhorn Network to 76, and Longhorn Network HD to 454. Fairfield: SECNetwork to channel 75, SECNetwork HD to 453, Longhorn Network to 76, Longhorn Network to 454, KERA-PBS HD to 113, KXTX-TMD HD to 135, and KXTX-EXT to 136. Lamesa: SECNetwork to 63 and Longhorn Network to 64. Mexia: SECNetwork to 75, SECNetwork HD to 453, Longhorn Network to 76, Longhorn Network to 454, KERA-PBS HD to 113, and KERA PBS World to 118. Stephenville: SECNetwork to 75, SECNetwork HD to 453, Longhorn Network to 76, Longhorn Network HD to 454, KXTX-TMD HD to 103, KTVT-CBS HD to 111, and KXTX-EXT to 135.
I am surprised that the Corsicana TX system isn't getting KXTX HD or KXTX Exitos as they are closer to Dallas where KXTX is based than Fairfield may be a typo or Corsicana doesn't have room after SEC and LHN? Also Lamesa is 450MHz so maybe the channels are going to be analog? as 64 is about 465MHz center carrier\ I know that Northland hasn't been rushing to remove analogs maybe because they serve small towns and they don't want to make customers angry? hmm the KTVT HD issue probably has something to do with the fact that Stephenville TX is over 60 miles from where the broadcast antennas are and they had to find a way to get a better signal? or contract with CBS was renewed as they lost it several years ago for some reason? KERA is likely being added due to bandwidth becoming available or they figured a way to get KERA HD to the distant rural areas finally? sorry if I elaborated too much lol.
