I remember several years back when WLS in Chicago started doing two 720p streams, and that was cutting edge then. Fast forward to WCIA/WCIX doing the same with two 1080i streams, both of smooth quality even with two more SD subs, which also amazed me still. When WEEK squeezed in the CW, I felt that a similar compression was a distant possibility given that the two mains are only a 1080i plus a 720p, but I wasn't holding my breath on it, and I am really surprised they ended up doing it. Granted, the compression artifacts are there, but it is still light years ahead of the SD, and it also gives some hope to any of the other CW Plus -3/4 subchannel affiliates out there (if their stations are willing to spend the money).

Steve Tarter at the Journal Star is reporting that WTVP is planning to merge the World and Create subchannels onto 47.3, with PBS Kids taking over 47.2 full-time.

Looks like DISH added your local CW (25.3) in HD today

Both WTVP 47.2 and WILL 12.2 are now PBS Kids.


Each station also has the same Create+World combined channel on 47.3 / 12.3; Create is from 5AM-5PM, and World is from 5PM-5AM.
