Yes that's true.

I was talking to some other people on a similar forum and they believe the Nexstar-Katz cable carriages will just take a while.

From looking at Katz's own websites it appears that really no Nexstar stations around the country even have cable carriage for the new channels on any cable system.

So it appears it's simply taking Nexstar forever vs the cable co's themselves taking forever.

WJAC and Grit

As many hre assume as well as myself, WJAC will have to drop GRIT since WTAJ states they will get it soon.

I figure like it was mentioned before, they may end up getting getTV as I seen evidence of a deal between them and Sinclair before.

I was wondering if anybody knew what the chances were of WJAC going with Justice Network?

I noticed JN doesn't seem to have a ton of affiliates and figured maybe they could try for more.

Nexstar

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.

What is Sinclair's motive?

I noticed WJAC is showing a ton more games now on MeTV.

Fun for me as two shows I wanted I have to wait 7 1/2 months for a re-air.

Anyway, today they showed 5 straight hours of Hockey on MeTV.

The second game wasn't even for our region, it was Minnesota and Colorado.

I wonder if eventually WTAJ will take GRIT and WJAC will slap on ASN 24/7 and beg for cable carriage.

My question is how does Sinclair even feel airing games on MeTV makes sense?

There seems to be no advertising on WJAC NBC or even MeTV to let viewers know games are even on except when they did "Friday Night Rivals".

Do they expect viewers to go "I want to watch a Sports Game, let me check MeTV."?
