Johnstown, PA - HDTV

The station and cable company contract for carriage of the broadcast signal, not the content. They can negotiate for some or all subchannels, or a broadcaster can opt for "must carry" of the main...

The TV Fool report is a far better resource than the AntennaWeb one. You should be able to pull in WJAC's Altoona transmitter (RF 22). That will give you NBC, MeTV, and Grit TV. WPSU (RF 15) is in...

Antenna TV has not yet been added to the official ABB lineup (via set top boxes) so I have not yet seen that feed. I have sampled 23.4 OTA a few times and PQ has been adequate, but I have not...

The STB message system announces the migration of CSPAN from 98 to 113. No Antenna as of yet, but I expect it will show up in the next few days.
Also, I picked up WTOO OTA here in Johnstown. They...

As of today (4/10/15) WJACDT3 is listed in the STB guide, but the channel is not yet active. That appears to be normal procedure. I would give it a day or two; they will certainly meet or beat their...

That's interesting. GRIT is not yet active via STB on channel 112. I would expect the slot to be opened a few days before launch.

If WATM wants it on, it is up to them to renegotiate their carriage agreement with ABB. If that has been done ABB will add the signal. Without such an agreement in place they will not and cannot add...

Thanks for the info.

Are you watching through a HD set top box? Or tuning in the separate HD versions of those channels (WJAC 85.3, WTAJ 77.1, etc)?
