I remember it. We always had a hard time getting that station to come in. I think they were NBC at the time before switching to CBS when WBIR wanted to be a NBC station. If I'm not mistaken, WATE was NBC and switched with WTVK when they were ABC.

WTSK, WTVK, WKXT, WVLT

Operating on UHF since their October 18, 1953 sign-on, using at first the call letters of WTSK-26 and network affiliation with both CBS and DuMont, the station was at a reception disadvantage when compared to WATE and WBIR, both operating on VHF frequencies. To further limit their reception capabilities, WTSK operated at a mere 21.9kw. Most people did not have the converter box needed to tune a UHF station. This was years before sets were required to have both a VHF and UHF tuner built-in.

July 28, 1954 WTSK, owned by TV Service of Knoxville, was sold to South Central Communications for $300,000 and assumption of liabilities not to exceed $216,000. With a new owner, the call letters were changed to WTVK.

In the 1960's the facility was rebuilt to include color studio equipment, a more powerful transmitter, and a taller tower.

In the 1970's, WTVK-26 was the ABC affiliate for the Knoxville market. It was operating from the tallest tower, for much of that decade, from their stick on the east end of Sharp's Ridge. WTVK, my employer back then, had a 5000kw signal (that's the maximum). We received numerous letters from people indicating reception problems. Many of these could be explained by the letter writer having a VHF only antenna in use.

WATE-6 erected a taller tower in the mid 70's surpassing the height of the WTVK-26 and WBIR-10 towers. WBIR moved their tower site to the east edge of the Knoxvile area, but later brought it back to Sharp's Ridge.

South Central Communications, the owner of WTVK, applied to the FCC for a short-spaced allocation to operated on VHF channel 8. This would take a special rule making procedure because channel 8 was already in use in the Nashville and Atlanta markets, normally to close to Knoxville for a channel 8 station on Sharp's Ridge. The application simmered for years, until finally authorized for WTVK to move from channel 26 to channel 8, which took place in the late 1980's. Along with the change of frequency, WTVK requested a new call sign, WKXT-8. Some years later the WVLT-8 calls were authorized for use.

Wanting a strong FCC to say no to the Wireless lobby. Keep the tv broadcast band for ota television broadcasters.

It was 1988.

But great summary of the station's history!

We dropped comcast almost a year ago. Wife a big Cubs fan. So we purchased MLB.tv. We can watch any ballgame live except for Brave and Reds. they are blacked out because knoxville considered their market. Watching the Live feed of Cubs and Milwaukee, the other day. You can select which stream you want to watch. Home or Away. Home Feed was "CUBs" Comcast Sport in Standard Def. Switch to Milwaukee feed, it was in Hi Def. So we watch the away teams feed. this is in Chicago. Cannot believe they would even think about broadcasting in Standard Def.

They don't. All CSN games are in HD. MLB.TV probably wasn't picking up the HD feed.

Nope. I was at a Nashville Predators playoff game a couple of weeks ago and that was the channel they just added SportSouth to in the Nashville market. Previously, they didn't have the channel at all. It would be very nice to get it in HD through Comcast because I have abandoned my Dish Network experiment due to awful picture quality on the sports channels, the fact that the HD regional sports channels are part time channels that Dish can turn on and off at a whim (sometimes before the game is over...) and I just grew to not like it. The Braves look much better on CSS HD and FS South HD on Comcast than Dish by far. I only had the Peachtree games in HD on Dish because I had "moved" my service address to Atlanta.

SportSouth HD is the only missing piece of the puzzle. The Predators looking like a blurry blocky mess on Dish sealed it for me though. Too bad I have to sit through the poor quality of WVLT to watch the Titans in the Fall. Comcast may not be known for superb quality, but they are better than Dish and don't recompress quite a few channels which makes those channels look excellent. It was like a haze was lifted especially since I got a larger 1080p tv and Dish resizes all 1920x1080 channels to 1440x1080 as a rule. DirecTV is not an option because I have had bad experiences with them when I cancelled their service a couple of years ago and they hit my bank account for near $500 claiming I never returned receivers when I never even had the chance to because the charge was initiated one day after they supposedly sent the recovery box. Needless to say, I wouldn't mind if space trash destroyed their entire fleet of satellites. I think I'll stick with cable.

In the past week, WATE has quit dropping down to SD for their weather scrolls. They're making progress.

Later this month, DirecTV is adding WGN HD. Cubs' fans should be thrilled.

If you're a sports fan, the best way to go is DirecTV. I grew tired of not having certain things with Comcast or getting something one time and not getting it the next with that channel 401 or whichever one it was. I know before I switched, there'd be a Big 10 Network game on that channel one week and a FSN Big 12 game the next week. There was no rhyme or reason to it. Now, I get both and then some without adding any kind of extra packages.

Did anyone else have an audio problem with WVLT last night during the first 15 minutes of CSI? We had no sound at all. We recorded it on the DVR, so I couldn't switch to OTA to see if it was a station or DVR issue.

I get them over the air. They had problems with glitching all afternoon yesterday. At one point they went blank for some period. I watched news on another channel and gave up on them for the day.

WVLT has been very weak for the past two weeks. I think they share a tower with WKOP which is doing well. I seems a waste of time to contact them since they alway just blame the viewer and say move your antenna. It can't be the viewers fault when WVLT and WKOP are on the same tower at the same height. WKOP is operating at lower power as well.

Thanks for posting this, I've noticed it also.

I installed a TiVo Premiere, so I thought the problem might be the tuner in the TiVo -- but that wouldn't explain why I get upper 90s on stations other than channel 8.

The channel was 401 that you are referencing, and it used to be awful and pointless, but now it has become FS Tennessee full time and generally shows what it is supposed to. It does have an incorrect listing when the Grizzlies and Hawks play quite a few times though. The Hawks will come on instead, even though the Grizzlies will be listed for that time slot. Too bad SportSouth isn't on Comcast in HD.

Despite my previous posting about the evils of DirecTV's billing deparment, my Comcast has become unreliable and I have missed a few important calls and had a few messed up recordings. I have now gone the AT&T way with DirecTV included. This was unlikely, but Comcast has been unresponsive about fixing my problem and even missed an appointment. They seem more concerned with the new building down the street. So, as of tomorrow morning, DirecTV has suckered me back with two HD DVRs and multiroom viewing to share the recordings between DVR boxes. I guess I'll call off the space trash and fleet destroying. I feel dirty. lol.

I have heard they are adding ESPNU HD, Travel HD, MSNBC HD, WGN America HD and Hallmark Movie Channel HD tomorrow too. If so, I'll be delighted to not lose ESPNU and Travel in HD. The addition of SportSouth HD won't hurt either.


Now, WVLT needs to fix their freaking channel. I am about tired of it looking perfect one minute and then spazzing and turning into a blur party that makes me want to rub my eyes and then macroblocking everywhere. Then it will return to normal. Why? Can't you people fix this? I have lived in Knoxville since 2006 and I have seen no channel that looks as bad as WVLT when things go wrong. I will assume that they are ignoring this issue like they are ignoring their poor signal quality by pushing it off on the viewers and the station engineers are busy drinking sodas and browsing the web. If they are not ignoring it then why is it the same problem after four years, WVLT? It is also nice that you can scroll information in HD.... until it causes the blurring/macroblocking problem I talked about before.

Oh, and props to WATE for the new weather scrolling and getting Oprah in HD, even though I don't watch it. I really appreciate the weather scroll...

I have noticed a few more HD commercials on WBIR. I know some of these are from the parent company, some are not. Maybe corporate will spend some money and update the studio and maybe some news in HD. Hey, I can dream.

This market is pathetic. I wonder what their excuse is now? Certainly Knoxville stations can generate more money than the Tri Cities. Cheap. Apathetic. Satisfied. The end.

In other news, WVLT should be pulled off the air until they can get a decent encoder. I'm not sure if this is a DirecTV issue or not, but when they show CBS network programming it looks like I turned the brightness all the way up on the tv. Their local programming and other shows look normal.

I can't wait to see one of these cheap assed stations join this decade and go HD. Even Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune in HD would be nice, WBIR. We are behind every adjacent market and most of those are smaller.

OTA, channel 8 has had lots of problems lately. They've even been off-the-air a few times in recent days.

What's really pathetic for our market was the dismantling of indie channel 7. When they hit the market with HD, outclassing the majors, I thought thought that the majors would be ashamed to have them showing 'em up. I thought they'd snap into action....damn, was I wrong. I presume that Retro TV sold off all their HD equipment when they bought 'em....?

WATE's parent company, Young Broadcasting, is only limping along. It's not a sure thing they will even survive the bankruptcy proceedings. WATE-6 will probably be sold off to another company, but even that is not a sure thing.

I noticed the higher brightness of WVLT as well.

Sadly, our Knoxville stations are owned by companies that are really struggling. I don't know if any of these same companies also own the stations in Chattanooga and Tri-Cities. If they do, shame on them for not giving Knoxville HD first regarding news and syndicated programming.
