Apparently it's not surprised that WTAJ isn't getting their new subchannels carried on local cable systems in the area.
After seeing some Facebook posts and messages on a few other forums, many are asking why Nexstar and also Media-General seems to not be getting carriage virtually anywhere in the country for the new Katz subchannels.
Also not hearing much about Heroes & Icons from WPCW with cable carriage but seems more folks want to see the Katz ones.
WHVL claims they are or were going to switch to 100% HD not too long ago but so far Atlantic Broadband had not added a 702.
Though ABB seems to have hit a major slug in TV maintenance with nothing being changed since first week of Oct. They have switched to Internet only maintenance since.
Comcast in Ebensburg does not even carry WHVL and State College already has their HD for ages now.
Seems like a sluggish time for cable carriage right now in the area.
WJAC is now providing all the technical services for WATM and WWCP. They have the ability to either squeeze or overlay weather alerts, so it comes down to choosing one or the other. But look for a more similar look from all three in the future.

Don't expect much from ABB...how they have any cable business is beyond me. Dish network has been adding quite a few subs including gettv, laff, cozi(fetv), justice network, & grit.
WPSU will be adding PBS Kids to their OTA lineup starting on January 16th...too bad their signal doesn't reach much of the area
Yea I know exactly what you mean.
Oddly Nexstar themselves may be the main issue with WTAJ.
Looking at various Nexstar stations across the country, virtually no Nexstar station has Laff, Escape, Grit, & Bounce TV added to any cable company, from ABB to Comcast to Charter to Spectrum to MetroCast, and regional ones. Virtually nobody has them.
Just wondering if this ever happened to anyone else. I have digital adapter boxes at my house and a cable card hooked in a hdhonerun at my house... Every so often one of the digital adapters will pause the video, with the audio still playing for 3 seconds until they both sync with each other. As far as I kno my cable card does not do this. I'm just wondering if anyone else with the cheap digital adapters has come across this problem.
