It's reflected on RabbitEars and the FCC Query. Yet Wikipedia still says its stick is on Cross Mountain.

Good observation.

Likely, RabbitEars and FCC are more accurate than Wiki.

In general, Wikipedia is updated by individuals in the know. So, it seems; no one 'in the know' has bothered to update.

My original comment was based on a much earlier conversation with an engineer/technician at WPXK.

Solid reception at a few locations in southern KY disappeared just prior to the comment posting. So, the evidence seemed to match.

This thread sure has been very quiet... I guess no one has been having any major issues?

Anyway, any guesses as to what Comcast will plan to charge per month for this upcoming Gigabit Pro 2Gbps FTTH service rolling out next month?

Nice! And it's symmetrical, with no data cap. Will probably be cost prohibitive for most people, though.

I'm curious about the DOCSIS 3.1 version that's coming next year (fingers crossed) with 1gbps, available to all Comcast customers via a new modem. Hopefully that will be more in line with the current Blast! prices.

As of Midnight tonight... Livewell is no longer on WATE 6.2. It has gone dark for now and has already disappeared from the Comcast listings. No word on a replacement yet, though I can't imagine they'd want to sit around with it dark for long.

Considering they charge $66.95 (with no TV service) for whichever version I have, I would imagine the 2GB service would be no less than $129 a month. Knowing them, it may be more like $149 a month.

Has WBIR done anything to improve their signal or picture quality of late? I noticed when the NASCAR race from Daytona was on the PQ looked better than in the past. I noticed again last night during the Hall of Fame game, PQ was excellent. Didn't look as "cloudy" or colors weren't dulled out as in the past few years. Whatever was done, I say kudos.

Personally, I haven't noticed any differences. I very well could be missing it though.
