Re: [HD] VHO-5 WLNY TV (10/55 HD)

Summer of 2013 is not what I would consider "within" the year, it's more than a year and probably will get put off even more and when Verizon adds it, it will be even later, so don't get your hopes up

I have always wondered why WLIW is carried on channel 21 and also in the 400's with all the subchannels?

We don't even have WLNY TV 55 in HD yet and alot cable systems do while Verizon sits on sidelines and waits.

I know it's very foolish, but Cablevision does the same thing with that channel, so it's not just Verizon.

Right, which makes no sense considering CBS is already sending them the HD feed (assuming that's true based on earlier post). At this point how long could it possibly take to set up and activate the channel?

WLIW's OTA digital feed is 4 SD channels.
Ch 470 is 21.1 WLIW.
Not sure why FiOS places it like a sub channel.

I only get 3 OTA channels:
21.1 = WLIW SD
21.2 = Create
21.3 = World

I don't recall there ever being a 4th.

I was checking a list that had 21.4 WLIW-DT4 V Me.

That channel is on WNET-DT 13.3.

While I am quite cynical about FIOS channel adds as well, there are "must carry" laws that the cable companies have to comply with for local channels.

But does "must carry" apply to HD? I assume carrying the SD feed satisfies the "must carry" requirement.

Looks like WLNY HD is launching in early July (this year)....

Dave - any published schedule or information about when the last of the MSG-HD channels will or won't be added? It would be nice to see ALL of the Rangers, Devils, Islanders, Knicks and Brooklyn Nets games in HD once the seasons commence. IIRC, the plan was to get the remaining channel(s) added, no?

On most broadcast channels there is NO SD feed.

true but cable companies can downconvert hd feeds if they have bandwith constraints. for example time warner downconverts must carry njtv here in nyc. they carry njtv in sd only even though he channel broadcasts in hd.

Nets are a YES network property, not MSG.

They were added months ago. Channels 578 through 581.

As I posted that I was thinking that the Nets were probably on another channel, but I wanted to give them some DSLR exposure now that they've upgraded their locale.

Early July is next week. Have they committed to an actual date yet?
