So far, I love ADELPHIA CABLE HD, I just wish we had more of the major networks.
All we have is CBS. I want ABC, NBC, FOX, and UPN in HD!
Anyone know when we will get FOX SPORTS in HD? It's on the GUIDE but there are no shows on it???
I MAY have an answer for you. I live near New Wilmington, PA(Pulaski actually). I also have Adelphia cable.
Now the office where my bills are sent come from the Sharon, PA office, and my channel line-up is the one from the Sharon channel lineup like you. The Sharon office does the service for BOTH New Wilmington, PA and Sharon, PA.
But if you went to the Adelphia website, you would notice that the New Wilm. lineup is different than the Sharon, PA lineup. The New Wilm. lineup contains not only KDKA/CBS out of the Burgh, but also WPXI/NBC, and WTAE/ABC out of the Burgh, while the Sharon line-up does not.
We receive(Sharon Line-up) which has WYFX/Fox out of Youngstown/Masury, and FoxSports Ohio to name 2.
Here are links to BOTH lineups(New Castle first), and you can see the differences:http://www.adelphia.com/cable_entert...l_line_ups.cfmhttp://www.adelphia.com/cable_entert...l_line_ups.cfm
Basically what I am telling you is that someone/somewhere drew a LINE and said "Certain Pittsburgh stations can't go beyond this point on a cable service", and unfortunately SHARON, PA is that LINE(or West Middlesex).
Even though I receive my cable line-up from Sharon, I can still receive via CLEAR QAM on my LG LST-4200A from my cable KDKA/CBS, WPXI/NBC, WTAE/ABC, and WQED/PBS(which you are SUPPOSED to receive, but don't. It is in the Sharon line-up) through my HD STB.
Your local stations are, BY LAW, supposed be sent in the CLEAR by your local cable co. There are ways around it, but most do send them in the Clear(not all though). As long as you get the expanded basic, you are entitled to them. They can't charge you for them. ESPNHD/HBOHD/INHD/INHD2/TNTHD/Etc... Yes they can. Absolutely. But not the OTA stations like PBS/CBS/ABC/NBC/WB/UPN/Etc...
Where I live is the LINE. If you ever looked at DirecTV, and asked them to print a LOCAL channel lineup for your zip code(16148 I think?) you would get the Youngstown stations. My zipcode(16143) is the END OF THE LINE for Burgh stations, and those are the locals I would receive. If I wanted the ones out of YTown or Ohio, I would need an antenna. My zipcode is the end of the line for receiving Burgh stations.
Your best bet to get more stations is to get a big antenna and an HD STB.
Someone drew a line, and unfortunately, you are on the wrong side of it to receive the other Burgh HD stations. Albeit just ONE small step on the wrong side of it.
