We are almost all done wiring it up and looking forward to some testing of the stream shortly.
Unless your station worked out a deal with Tribune Company on airing certain sportscasts on the subchannel, then it's not part of the Antenna TV broadcast. Those sportscasts will come from the WGN-TV side instead. In Chicago, if WGN-TV can't air one of the sportscasts that they have the rights to (usually due to CW programming commitments), then they have WCIU (Weigel Broadcasting) show it instead, & usually on the HD channel. Since WCIU is independent, they're free to air whatever they want on WCIU 26.1 & 26.2 (U Too). Since Weigel in Chicago is completely independent on the main channel & 1 subchannel, they don't need to interrupt the network feeds of MeTV, This TV (both they program themselves), or interrupt Bounce (the only network they don't program themselves), though Bounce is on WWME-LD 23.2, & not on WCIU. They have MeToo, but that's only for Chicago.
