Are you receiving 58.1 (RF29) in Visalia? RF29 is a low power station! I wouldn't guess that their signal would be receivable in Visalia. If it is not 58.1 but rather 58.2 that you are receiving, then you are not receiving LP RF29. 58.2 is a subchannel of full power KBAK RF33. The 29.2 subchannel carrying THISTV is on low power RF29.

Azteca is now in 720p HD on 23-2. NHK World is now 720p HD on KCET's translator on 46-4. Low power UniMas 31 has added a subchannel. Get TV is on 31-2. The SD simulcast of UniMas on KUVI RF45 is now mapped to virtual channel 31-3. Azteca and NHK World are still SD onlyon Bright House cable, and Get TV is not on Bright House. The former analog low power channel 47 has switched to digital and has moved to channel 27. Low power channel 41 has also switched to digital...
The D (formerly Fitzgerals's) in Las Vegas. Real HD in the rooms. Real HD on lots of tv sets behind the bar and throughout the casino. All the Ceasars Entertainment properties. Analog stretchocrap in the casinos and bars.
I thought AOL's desire after acquiring Time Warner was to get rid of all non-media subsidiaries. Time Warner sold Six Flags around the same time.
Does Cozi broadcast using a real 16:9 widescreen SD raster (yeah), or do they broadcast letterboxed in a 4:3 raster (boo). It will probably be a long time, if ever, before we get Cozi in Bakersfield. Our NBC affiliate (KGET RF 25 virtual 17) has CW on -2 and Telemundo on -3. Telemundo is also broadcast in low power analog on channel 11. If they ever do switch Telemundo to digital they will probably keep the simulcast on KGET because of the much greater range of the...
If the locals are encrypted, I would think that they would have shut off the box's ability to unscramble them as of the day you canceled tv service. Maybe the reason your tv can't tune them directly is that you have the tuner set to "air", "antenna" etc. instead of "cable". Or maybe your tv is one of the few models that has an ATSC tuner but no QAM tuner. Anyway, watching any cable tv channels when you don't subscribe to any tv service at all is theft of service. ...
"'Please stand by' slides are no more"? Create on KVPT 18.2 had one for awhile tonight!
The Plaza in downtown Las Vegas. LG HDTVs (I am guessing around 32-37 inches). REAL HD! The major broadcast networks and several calbe networks. Received via DirecTv then retransmitted over the MATV system. The cable came straight from the wall to the tv and I didn't see a cable card, so unless a box is hidden behind the wall, the channels are being sent unencrypted over the MATV system (I thought ESPN and others required encryption to the tv set. The above post also...
You guys have The Cool Tv now? I am so jealous! We had it in Bakersfield via KERO 23.3 RF10 from March 2011 until Sept. 2012. Then it was replaced by LiveWell,as also happened on all the former McGraw-Hill stations when purchased by Scripps. I would love to have The Cool Tv back. I really miss 80s at 8! Fortunately I archived many hours of my favorite videos on my Mag513.
