I called WJZY last week and left a voice mail asking them to change 46.2 to 16:9, since Movies! offers that format. No one called me back. So I e-mailed the Movies! network. It's interesting that an engineer from WJZY replied to the e-mail that I had sent only to the Movies! network. LOL! I guess the Movies! people got ahold of the local affiliate, and forwarded them my e-mail and told them to reply to it. The engineer apologized that no one returned my call, and said he would check with his superiors about changing 46.2 to 16:9.

It was indeed changed to 16:9, but it still appears zoomed in a bit.

Must be a ratings month. WBTV is giving away a house and WCNC is giving away a car.

I just checked NewsBlues

and - indeed - it's SWEEPS through July 30.

So hide the remote, check your disaster safety kit, and head for the hills

I'm not familiar with the WBTV giveaway, but WCNC is actually paying for a 1 year lease on a car, instead of giving away a car. (in this case a Mercedes)

It will be interesting to see how WJZY affects the ratings at 6PM.
