Re: [HD] NY 55/10 HD channel 510

It doesn't look like it is getting added to VHO7.

This is so goofy, FiOS has no problem carrying the WLNY SD feed in NJ but will not add the HD feed while just about every cable provider in Northern NJ has added WLNY HD.

I had an e-mail contact with someone in programming for the NYC area but unfortunately it seems they are no longer with FiOS.
She had helped get NJN HD, now NJTV HD added to VHO7.

I really don't get Verizon's rationale for not carrying it in NJ. Is it a bandwidth issue? A cost issue? Doesn't make sense...

WLNY is an odd station though. If you look at the Cablevision channel lineups for Hudson County and Newark, they don't carry WLNY at all, not even SD. But Cablevision in places like Morris County and Passaic county have WLNY-HD. I know Comcast in Jersey City doesn't carry WLNY at all.

For what it's worth, I sent an email yesterday to stationservices@cbs2ny.com which is posted on the WLNY website. No response as of yet.

Here's the response from WLNY on Facebook/
"we were told that it would be mid July...so HOPEFULLY this week or next! We're as anxious about this as you!"

I saw that too. It seems they usually add new channels on Tuesdays, so maybe we'll see it next Tuesday 7/17.

Yeah, I wonder if there is some technical issue going on in VHO7 that is causing a delay in channels being added. WLNY-HD was added in VHO5 two weeks ago, so there isn't really any other reason they would just be sitting there waiting. Unfortunately there isn't anyone "in the know" here to provide any insight.

Umm, The Olymics do not start for another 11 days so I do not think we (VHO7) are missing anything.

Ok thanks for that, I was mistaken. People will not not miss anything for another 8 days...

We got the Olympic channels but still no NY55/10 in HD. I wonder what the problem is?

Still not here in VHO7 and today is tuesday, the usual day that add things?. Makes no sense why they won't add it

In the end, do you really care? This channel is really lame. I haven't found any reason to tune to it yet.

And as others have noted, the WLNY logo is way too prominent on the screen - way too distracting.

Yes- the 9:00PM newscast produced by CH2. It's excellent.

Yeah the 9pm newscast is really the only thing on WLNY worth watching (the rest of the schedule is mostly lousy court shows). There is a morning news show too but I haven't really checked that out yet. I'm not a big fan of CBS's news in general (I usually watch NBC or ABC), but sometimes 9pm is the only convenient time to watch the news for me.

Rather get WCBS2+, at least it would be something different. VH07 is NJ, we don't go near Long Island!

They are no longer pushing this as a LI station but now a tri-state station since CBS took over.

The 2.2 subchannel, "CBS New York Plus," is 480i, so it wouldn't take up much bandwidth. They could add that plus WLNY HD and still have plenty of room left over in the local-channel bandwidth, which is separate from the bandwidth allocated to national channels, as others have pointed out. Mercer County gets 19 HD locals, so presumably we've got lots of room. So why not add it? What else is there? There's no other broadcast HD channel they could add, is there?

Also, WLNY used to have a low-power Morristown repeater, which might be one of the reasons why a lot (though not all) cable systems carry it in northern NJ even though its city of license is way out on eastern Long Island. So, WLNY used to have some roots in VHO7. However, the repeater was not sold to CBS along with WLNY.

There should be no additional bandwidth needed for sub channels of the local broadcast channels as they are included in the feeds given to FiOS.
FiOS is getting 2.2 CBS+ NY from WCBS-DT, for whatever reason they are choosing to not add it to the NYC area VHOs.

What kind of programming is 2.2 have?

WCBS 2.2 really isn't that great. They just repeat newscasts over and over all day. It's no loss that Verizon doesn't carry it.

Yeah I checked earlier and somebody asked/posted on July 25th, but there was no response from WLNY. My guess is they won't comment since they probably had incorrect information last time when they said "mid July".
