Charge TV on Channel 22.5

Not getting the correct guide data from Zap2It, and TitanTV has Charge on 41.1 and Comet on 41.2.

A link would be great. I'm not Messaging Bob at this hour for confirmation!

There's no one size fits all when it comes to OTA reception...

I read that article about WYCC in today's paper (Sept 26).
How is that going to work? Will it be like watching WBBM on 48-3? Or will you still get WFXT on 60.1 or on 5.4?
I know WOCH 41-1 is gone and Comet is on 22-4 which is hard to get with an indoor antenna.

It's likely some of their programming would become a WTTW subchannel. I don't know if WTTW has enough bandwidth to add yet another one (they have one HD and 3 SD so far) without degrading pictures. The SD is surprising good looking most of the time. I bounce around between WYIN, WYCC and WTTW for some shows like "This Old House" as WTTW would often get weeks behind due to pledge weeks and similar (does anybody actually watch WTTW during pledge week? I end up not watching it as they preempt everything for stuff I have no interest in!)

I noticed last night, even though no signal. The channel info on my tv said "66-5 Laff"

I noticed Laff is simulcasting on WGBO 66-5 & WLS 7.3.
Also Heartland (old TNN programing) is on 62.4 WJYS.

Last night, I've notice on my television that Telemundo and Telexitos was also streamed on 44.3 and 44.4 respectively.

Are they're testing the two channels on RF 29, before their plan to shut down RF 45?

That's what I was thinking. Also: I updated the two pages on the first page to note the channel changes mentioned above. Thanks, everyone!
