This market is divided into two population centers each with different station transmitters and call signs, affiliated with the same company sometimes:
I will report on the Tri-Cities -Pasco, WA; Richland, WA; Kennewick, WA part of the Market.
PBS - KTNW-DT on the air HDTV, with channel 31.1 PBS-HD feed-stunning PQ, -channel 31.2 SDTV PBS
NBC- KNDU-DT on the air with SD only, but plans for HDTV in 2005 maybe. 25.1 NBC, 25.2 Local news loop, 25.3 weather
FOX- KFFX-DT on the air , SDTV channel 11.1(on VHF channel 8 from 66 miles) reports 2-3 yr wait for HDTV
ABC- KVEW-DT on the air, SDTV channel 42.1-HD status unknown to me
CBS- KEPR-DT on the air, SDTV channel 19.1( actually on ch 18) with very low power and possible adjacent channel interference from their high power analog channel 19. Seem to have no interest in the CBS HD programming
Local Charter Cable just added HDTV tier, so maybe more HDTV progress on broadcast channels will be coming I hope!
