Lack of Public TV channels with WOW
With the start of digital TV, our (Chicago) public TV stations are now also broadcasting subchannels. Our 2 public stations each have a couple additional channels of great, intelligent programming.
But expect WOW to carry them in their Chicagoland cable line-up? No, of course not. We're too dumbed down, and only want wrestling and the usual mass entertainment. Even the competition here (Comcast and U-verse) carry them. But WOW, of course not.
I've rigged an outside antenna in pulling them in (for free). All the more reason to consider other options.
