Database look up is here for all cities and dates in url below. Dont think Lincoln has any moves as most are on lower real channel numbers already.

Now it looks like all three are going to move on Friday.

I'm in Gretna for a few days and checking out the state of local TV and I have to say KFXL's picture quality is beautiful with no subchannels and 15 Mbps bandwidth. Comparing to KPTM the quality difference is noticeable, even as KFXL seems to be delayed a few seconds behind KPTM. I haven't seen an OTA picture that nice in quite a while. Must be nice for sports.

In the St. Louis area, where I live now (was in Omaha until 2013 and I still follow this thread since I visit periodically) every major network affiliate has at least two subchannels in addition to the main program and a couple have three and so naturally the OTA PQ has ended up looking soft. Same goes for mid-Missouri and Kansas City (haven't watched St. Joe channels in a while).

Have to also say WOWT's HD picture isn't looking too good with 4 subchannels compared to what I remember years back when it was just WOWT-HD and 62O.

KPTM and KXVO are likely going to slip to Phase 4.

both stations submitted a request today to move during phase 4 due to " circumstances outside of its control"

They are requesting a 2 week extension

Makes sense in that neither station seems to have been promoting a rescan date at all recently. KMTV has a crawl across the bottom of the screen.

You need to rescan.
