I was watching "Andy Griffith" earlier today and got to thinking about WFMY. Do they still air "Andy Griffith" every day? I remember up until a few years ago when closed captioning requirements...

My only surprise is that Sinclair didn't unload WMYA and channel share them with WLOS. It would have actually improved the coverage area considering most of the NC viewers in the market can't pick...

I'd say all the subchannels are going to have to be toast. There just isn't any way to reasonably combine two HD channels, keep good quality, and have subchannels (at least until (or IF should I say)...

I guess I've just never really noticed it before. The Reds do claim the western part of NC as their territory, but none of S.C. I guess it is too hard for Charter to flip feeds constantly like...

Another interesting trend.. apparently now Charter viewers are getting Reds games on Fox Sports South. Apparently the "Carolinas" feed carries their games when the Braves don't conflict.

No issues here, but I did see some breakup when watching last night at times. I'm a few hours late though, whatever it was might have been corrected by now.

Also it appears Charter has added WGGS...

That possibly might be an opening for some of it at least. In the Upstate of SC where I am we're all Charter, but the Charlotte market next to us was TWC. They have a spin-off channel of TWC Sports...

It does have a "switch" that adjusts the gain. I haven't determined yet if the actual amp part is in the booster or in the antenna itself. That is another point I hope to test out. So far it seems to...
