Atlanta 11.2 Weather Nation

Does WXIA not monitor 11.2? Lip sync is way off. Seems to slip daily. Then someone reboots or resets something, and it's good for about a day, and then the sync slips away again, day by day. Perhaps they should really fix it?

Weather Nation (The Weather Channel's rival) is also available nationwide on DirecTV as well.

This is correct. I have my laptop connected to my TV. The major broadcast networks have around 4 or 5 of the last episodes on their websites. Hulu also has some, the free ones you can only access on a computer. Hulu Plus subscription is needed for using the apps. When you watch shows from the major networks on Hulu, they usually have the local affiliate logo on the bottom, just like if you watched it live locally.

Do you mean for local programming? I think WSB has the most news and the most watched news. The rest have been trying to catch up for years. I'd put Fox 5 second when it comes to news. 46 seems to have decided to hire attractive women to pump up ratings. Hasn't worked so far. The AJC has a blog on the local TV and radio stations. http://radiotvtalk.blog.ajc.com/



But the good thing, IMO, are the networks that show old content, MeTV, Bounce, Antenna TV and Movies! TV Network.

Univision is the only station with two HD feeds. And they have saved me a couple times when it comes to sports, when ESPN3 crapped out during the USA World Cup game and for most of the F1 races.

And 69, UPN has one of the strongest signals from where I am in W. Cobb.

Ion has the weakest signal for me of the HD networks, the transmitter is behind me and my installer told me I'd have to add another antenna to get it.

Looks fine to me right now. I don't usually watch it though.

I remember Stephany Fisher of WGCL 46, she used to work at NBC station WYFF 4 in Greenville, SC doing morning news before moving to Atlanta.

Also WGCL CBS 46 is also owned by the same owners of our FOX station in Greenville, SC WHNS 21 aka FOX CAROLINA.

Everyone in the Atlanta area please go to 11alive.com (WXIA) and ask for them to add Cozi TV as a subchannel on their OTA digital broadcasts. You can make this request on the "contact us" page at 11alive.com. If you haven't heard of CoziTV, it shows mainly retro tv shows such as Magnum, PI, The Six Million Dollar Man, etc., etc. It's similar to MeTV and Antenna TV. I would really like to see this station being picked up in the Atlanta OTA market. If enough of us make the request, it might become a reality here. Thanks.
