I haven't seen any of the KRDK channels show up on Midcontinent yet. I've sent them a couple of emails requesting it, but so far nothing.

Anyone else notice that KRDK is 'squishing'* Cozi, Comet, Decades and H&I? Many of the commercials run on these channels are not 'squished'. It's absolutely 100% annoying to have to constantly find the aspect button when tuning to these channels. Then again when another channel is selected.
*vertical blank space on and within each side of the 4:3 frame.
EDIT: I doubt midco will carry any KRDK as none of the channels are a 'major' netork on their own. They'll only carry a sub-channel that's broadcast from a 'major'. --IMHO-- This is, unless KRDK wants to pay 'to play'

I emailed TitanTv about the inaccurate listing for KRDK, so hopefully soon it's fixed. Here's their reply:
Thank you for your email. We will have a representative contact the station to request they keep us updated with channel changes. We appreciate your care for our guide.

Not on WDAZ yet...my guess is this will take the place of the CW

I see that Midco has added WDAY Justice on 592, and FINALLY switched Xtra on 596 to the HD signal.

Anyone in other places in the Red River Valley noticing any activity Gray's LPTVs they purchased last fall? Nothing on channel 30 in Grand Forks yet. I would think we would start seeing test signals soon if they need to be ready to carry CW by September

Nothing in the south end of the Valley. Personally - I'm not a fan of this plan. I absolutely do not see how LPTV (even multiple ones) are going to give the same coverage as WDAY/Z. I have a feeling that outside of the metro areas - there will be big chunks that have the CW now ... but won't have it in September.

Unless they are going to change CBS to SD on kvly and run NBC HD plus CBS, Me and CW in SD, then put CBS HD on the LPTVs.
If only the ATSC spec would have been updated to include H.264 in like 2005, so most of the receivers that purchased for the 2009 switch would have the capability, would've almost doubled the capacity, we could have seen 1080p video and/or more multiplexed streams (maybe 4k video? 6Mhz might be tight for that, even with h.264)
