Are you talking about ION in general or the subchannels of WRIC?

I can't get it to work either. It's ridiculous really. I guess I will get an expensive antenna.

I was referring to Ion and not the subchannel. Verizon also broadcast Ion but in HD.

Anyone DVR WTVR 6.1 NFL games? I watched some of the London game early Sunday and was surprised how much motion artifacts I was seeing. I see none of those on NBC or FOX NFL games. I also do not see them on the Redzone channel. Even the CBS games on the Redzone look great. Curious what the bitrates is during the games. Last year I was watching the Redzone and switched to 6.1 because I became very interested in that particular game and I was surprised how much softer the picture looked then the same game feed on the Redzone. I went back and forth when the Redzone was showing that game and the picture on 6.1 was softer and seemed more compressed.

You're eyes probably weren't deceiving you. Who's your video provider?

Verizon FIOS. Was hoping someone here DVRs games so we could see the actual bitrates.

I think the next big thing for TV broadcasting is ATSC 3.0. That'll include 4K broadcasting, multiple HD subchannels and other video/data/audio services...
