Who says that isn't how they're going to do it? I remind you that by making My Network TV the primary on KYLE, it can claim must-carry on satellite market-wide. If the Fox programming just simulcasts at present on the two stations, then it's like gaining an extra channel for free.

That almost has to be the way it will be done. Folks in Waco/Temple/Killeen will get KYLE added and folks in B-CS will get KWKT added.

This really worries me because after more than 11 years with D*, I'm cutting the cord June 28 (when my current contract expires). I plan to rely solely on OTA (and maybe Netflix) and I will be VERY disappointed if I can't watch NFL football on FOX this fall.

Is FOX44CE still around this forum? He can give us the skinny.

Update on FOX28. I spoke with Chris at KYLE 28 and he said 28.1 will be MyNetworkTV and 28.2 will be KWKT FOX44 out of Waco (both HD). 28.3 will be EstrellaTV.

Update on ABC40. I haven't been able to dial it in recently so I called the Waco office. They did have a piece of equipment that broke and are working to repair it. In the meantime, the gentleman I spoke with said they are relaying KXXV ABC25 on 40.1. I will check this when I get home tonight.

I was able to dial in KXXV ABC25 and all sub channels on 25.1, 25.2 and 25.3 last night. I was also able to see KXXV on 40.1. I have my antenna pointed (with compass) directly at the KRHD tower location according to antennaweb.org. I get strong, solid reception on all local channels now.

I only get 44 out of Waco but today saw the addition of KYLE 28 on 44-2; Estrella has moved to 44-3. The PSIP data is not correct though...

Does anyone know why KXXV 25 is broadcasting in stereo only, no DD5.1? I have DTV and OTA and neither 25, nor 25-1 have been in 5.1 for prime time shows for awhile now.

KWKT Fox 44 was off for about 48 hours this weekend. There's nothing on their website to explain it and I was wondering if anyone knew what happened.

What happened to channel 62? It was a Spanish channel with two substations.

Did their transmitter go down or something?

I will try it again, but my TV for the last couple days acted like it wasn't even there, even though its in my TV scan memory.

Is anyone in the area seeing KZCZ-LD 34 (34-1) on the air? If so, is it running the Katz networks (Bounce/Grit/Escape/Laff)?

KNCT (Channel 46.x) went dark a few weeks back and has stayed dark. I wondered whether it was an issue with their broadcast or reception on my end since I'm in a fringe area to the southeast of their transmitter in Williamson County, but didn't get around to looking at their website until today. Their front page has an explanation:

KNCT’s DTV transmitter failed Sunday morning (6/24/16). We had to return a part for repair last week. A spare part we were using malfunctioned Sunday. We should have the replacement returned soon. Technicians have not been able to locate what is causing the part to draw excessive current. Thank you for your concern.

Stay tuned...

Monday update: All sub-channels are back now, so apparently the transmitter part(s) got installed sometime over the weekend.

I can't pick up 34-1, but Bounce has shown up as 44-4, as a subchannel of KWKT.

I'm near Waco. I'm getting the new 44.4 Bounce but not 34-1. It looks like 34 is licensed for College Station, so it's no surprise I can't get it OTA. I do get the majors and PBS for College Station on DirecTV but 34 isn't there either.

LPTV stations do not have community of license requirements. KZCZ-LD is on a tower between Waco and Temple:

I'm between Waco (10 miles away) and Temple (30 miles), so it should be strong for me. It's possible the tuner on my main tv isn't the greatest but I do get all the other local channels ok.

Then it's entirely possible it's not on the air at all.
