If it goes the same way it has been mentioned in other Quincy markets they will go live 5/1 except for Court which is 5/8
KTTC has color bars now for 10-4 and 10-5, saying coming soon. EPG for Court TV says May 8. EPG for Justice TV is listing the actual programs, no start date mentioned.
47-3,4,5 are active and have EPGs, but the picture itself is black.
So will duplicate KARE subchannels (Justice and Quest), and Chippewa Falls WEUX (Escape).
Which will be nice as I can't get non-local channels anymore since a power outage "degraded" the preamp at the top of my tower. Which I am no longer able to climb. So no more Packers games/coverage out of La Crosse.
Two more subchannels on KTTC??? That is already bit-starved. 1080I on 10-1 and 720P on 10-2 plus an SD. Confetti at the end of Nascar races in the winner circle is already pixelation city. Fast moving sports will be really bad.
And KXLT will be just as bad with two 720Ps and 3 SDs.
(If memory serves, the ATSC proposal called for one
HD channel or
multiple SD channels, not
combinations of them.)
