The PQ on Philly FOX's version (WTXF ch 29.2) ain't half bad at all. Far superior to ThisTV on WPHL ch 17.3. I'm thinking I will enjoy some of the movies on this new channel. In fact, I'm watching the current movie (Down to the Sea in Ships) and enjoying it very much. I'd never seen this 1949 movie before and may watch the whole thing when it's on again (can't do so now)
Also, as an aside, I tuned in yesterday afternoon and it looked to me like they were not showing what was on the schedule at the website. (?). Looks like the schedule matches the programming today, tho'
BTW, my ch 11 reception of the Yankees-Mets game last night was very good indeed. Turns out that my ch 11 reception appears better than my MY9 reception. I tuned the position specifically for ch 11 last night and it's just a bit different than the MY9 position.
This is at my #1 antenna location. Again, this represents a very different situation than I had last year (when I had virtually no NYC reception at this location).
They showed a shot of the NY skyline during the game and it looked like the Freedom Tower (1WTC) was essentially completed, if only on the outside.Edited by T-Max - 5/28/13 at 10:09am
