I know I should receive the local channels, but I am curious about other channels.
What channels will I be able to receive with a HDTV card?
Thank You ...
Here's the list. I'm not listing subchannels because different tuners assign different subchannel numbers to the same channels. Also, the major local HD networks have virtual channels if your tuner supports them.
- Home Shopping Network
- KTFF 41/61 - Telefutura (Spanish)
- KGMC 43 - independent. Mostly home shopping, local sports, and really old movies
- KNXT 49 - Catholic/independent. Bad picture quality, probably station's fault.
- The Weather Channel with local weather info
- TV Guide Channel. It's still out of date on the channel lineup.
- Community Programming. The same channel found on analog channel 14.
- The Weather Channel without local weather info
- KSEE 24.1 - NBC-HD (virutal channel 24)
- KSEE 24.2
- KSEE 24.3 - LATV
- KGPE 47.1 - CBS-HD (virtual channel 47)
- KGPE 47.2
- The Weather Channel "weatherscan" for Comcast
Channels 83 through 86:
- Random OnDemand programming on 10 subchannels each.
(all 4:3 SD local channels)
- KVPT 18 - PBS
- KFTV 21 - Univision (Spanish)
- KSEE 24 - NBC
- KMPH 26 - FOX
- KFSN 30 - ABC
- KMSG 39 - Azteca (Spanish)
- KGPE 47 - CBS
- KNSO 51 - Telemundo (Spanish)
- KAIL 53 - MyTV
- KFRE 59 - CW
- KBTV-CA 8 Sacramento (foreign programming)
- KMPH 26.1 - FOX-HD (virtual channel 26)- KFRE 59.1 - CW-HD (virtual channel 59) currently gone
- KVPT 18.2 - PBS-HD (virtual channel 18)
- KVPT 18.3 - "V me" (Spanish)
- KFSN 30.1 - ABC-HD (virtual channel 30)
- KFSN 30.2
- KFSN 30.3
There are other channels, but they are mostly 24/7 infomercial channels and PPV previews.
Sometimes, random channels go missing or scrambled, especially with the channels on 80. Usually, another channel scan will solve that problem.
