WLIW gone on Clear QAM Norwalk

WLIW (Channel 21) is no longer available on my TV. All three of the channels Create, Digital and World are missing.

I don't have a cable box and have hooked up the coax cable directly to the TV.

ABC also went missing around the same time (8-Sept-2012) but a re-scan fixed it.

Optimum has not been of much help. The tech came out, but said I need a cable box to receive any channel.

Yes, you need a cable box. Didn't you get a notice about it? Probably about two years ago.

He mentioned ClearQAM in the title so if he's on LI he should still be able to pick up w/o a box. Might just need to rescan.

Broadcast basic is still in clear QAM on the Norwalk, CT system. He should be able to get all of the channels he listed with just a QAM tuner in his TV.

Norwalk is accross the pond in CT. Maybe wasn't supposed to be getting or something? Dunno, haven't checked my ClearQAMs either

I have Optimum in CT as well and something definitely happened to ABC, WLIW Main , PBS Create, PBS World, Antenna TV and a few others. In the past week or two these channels disappeared from QAM. Nothing to do with rescan or anything else. Cablevison is not sending them. How do we know if they are obligated to send the channels especially PBS?

Hmm, watching WLIW now in CT (Bridgeport) at 1:46PM on Saturday 9/15 on ClearQAM just fine. That's channel 21-1 right? ABC channel 7-1 and 8-1 works fine also. Antenna TV (11-2) shows the CV channel message about Tribune blah blah but that's known.

Where is PBS Create/World?

What's been missing for me for a while though is News12 CT usually on 94-712. The SD channel is still there but the HD disappeared.

Cv routinely does audits and installs filters to block channels to customers that only order OOL

Opt_CT,
Yes Optimum is obligated to send those channels in according to their website.

See »www.optimum.com/ratecard.jsp?sea···id=55390. Click on Broadcast Basic to see the list of channels you can get without a cable box.

ABC and WLIW are both broadcast channels and Optimum is obligated to send them in clear QAM

This has now been resolved. ABC and all the WLIW channels came back.

Cablevision was not putting these channels in clear QAM on the feed I was on.

Thanks for the heads up. PBS is the way to go. Are you out in the woods or something? I'm off lower Newtown / EAST ave. and I lost WLIW 21 intermittently in the past, then tried the HD channel and there it was. Juggled my DVR recording sched in the nick of time to record my favorites. After awhile i started thinking WLIW 21 was to blame. Maybe was. I had a similar problem a couple of years ago, it would freeze and bump along.
