WWJ-DT added a subchannel, last night. 62.2 is now "Decades." You may need to rescan.

Walking the fine line between jaw-dropping and a plain ol' yawn.

Cool Concept -- Binge watching of classic shows... I wish Get Smart was upcoming (instead of last month) though...

Thanks for letting us know!

FWIW The addition of "Decades" also included a whole a new encoder, I'm told.

From the looks of things, "better."

Lord no. TV is in a different building, so getting eyes on the new gear ain't happening until the next time I have a reason to go over there. You gotta admit, it looks better now - even with a subchannel - than it was looking a year ago. Maybe if Carol Cain calls in sick, this week, they'll have me sub and I can find out more.

Interesting news for those of us who are BHN customers. Charter is in talks to buy BHN per this article: http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articl...house-networks

I'm guessing that this would only happen if the Comcast deal blows up. In that case, Charter would be after TWC instead.

Let's all hope the Comcast deal implodes.
