That's because in addition to spectrum sharing with WZME, WEDW is now sharing their half of the signal with 34-x WTXX-LD, once WTXX-LD is able to go back to its own signal CPTV will be HD again. (Basically WTXX-LD is moving to RF 29 on a tower closer to Hartford, but it can't do so until WUTF in Worcester moves to RF 19, so it has a STA to spectrum share with WEDW's half of the signal)
WEDW isn't moving to 1WTC. The DTS facility is for two sites, their current site at Trumbull and a secondary site at the Empire State Building. If you already get the channel 49 signal from Trumbull you're good to go. The Trumbull site is getting a boost in coverage with a non-directional pattern and will reach the bulk of southwestern Connecticut and Suffolk county. The secondary Empire State Building site is mainly for the 5 boroughs, Nassau, Westchester and Rockland counties and Northeastern NJ.
The other CP for a site in Stamford is not getting built. That's the site they would have used if their DTS application was denied. That site was also a major improvement over the Trumbull signal, although it wouldn't have reached NJ, Staten Island, Rockland county and southern LI that good.
WLIW on the otherhand is moving to 1WTC, and while it will give them greater coverage in NYC and the surrounding area, it will come at the expense of central and eastern Suffolk county and some hilly places in northwestern Suffok and northeastern Nassau county. (Even the area in the shadow of WLIW's current tower is in the red on the propogation maps)
