---------- e-mail from ABC6 Program Director ------------
You are receiving this email because you expressed an interest in WLNE-DT broadcasts. You may remember that my last update indicated that we hoped to be on the air in August. Unfortunately, that will not occur. Construction delays, as well as delays in equipment delivery, will push back the construction process into the fall, possibly as late as November. Although we do have our DTV transmitter, and many of the other items we need to begin broadcasting, we still await the manufacture of our antenna - obviously a critical component!
As a reminder, we will be broadcasting our DTV signal from Rehoboth. (Analog Channel 6 will continue to be broadcast from Tiverton.) Initially, we will pass through all ABC network programming that originates in the 720p HDTV format. We will upconvert local and all other programming into the digital format, so our entire line-up will be available on WLNE-DT, channel 49.
Thank you for your patience,
