Turned on my TV in the kitchen this morning which is just direct connected for clear QAM channels and NECN which has been clear QAM on channel 70-112 (and another for several years before that but can't recall) no longer comes in and just says "Scrambled".

Anyone know what gives? Despite the fact that it's a royal PITA since the tuner picks up hundreds of bogus clear QAM channels I have to manually weed out, I re-scanned just now and it is indeed gone.

Not that I watched it all that much lately (definitely gone way down hill over the last year or two) but it was nice to have a 24 hour news choice in there since I'm not paying a monthly fee for a set that gets used during morning coffee and that's about it. Actually the *entire* news scene in Boston has gotten much worse recently IMO, but that's a whole different topic....

This is because NECN is no longer part of the Local Tv only tier. This may had been done as a condition of the retransmission consent for WBTS. You can still get it on Ch 513

Another forum has reported those with STB require a refresh to restore the channel. Also the transmission is now in MPEG4 so QAM tuners can no longer view it.
