it has to do with wtrf putting too many sub-channels on their channel. WTOV9 did it the right way just having one sub channel. KDKA has NO subchannels like other CBS owned stations.
WCBS in NY has a subchannel now. They are testing it as a news service sort of like the Nonstop channels NBC owned stations have to take to the other CBS owned stations.
So kdka would be next? Would areas like Weirton get it or just pa and morgantown ?
A little off topic. KDKA's website said the Steeler game would be broadcast on Pittsburgh CW Network. Where is our CW Network(SD/Channel 6) out of. Ours just had regular scheduled programing. Also not available in HD.
we don't get pittsburgh's cw. We get the generic satellite feed. Guess it was cheaper for comcast to get the generic satellite feed than the pay kdka/cbs to carry pittsburgh's cw.
