Re: Paying for Viewers

I spend quite a bit of time in your DMA each week. I certainly won’t be watching. $6600 is not enough for the mind numbing torture of watching a Sinclair channel.

I just watch stuff on Dish up there anyway.

Re: Channel 26

I miss getting channel 9 via my antenna. Why can't you get it? I miss it as well! I could never get it out here in Farmington Hills. I could always get it in Warren I’m near Ypsilanti. I use a stellar labs 30-2476 aimed at McGregor to get it. Comes in fairly reliably. Only interrupted in summers du...

Re: Changes probably coming soon at WPXD (ION).

Qubo served a great purpose once upon a time, but with PBS Kids now offering similar programming in crystal clear HD, it really is no longer needed. Ion Plus is garbage; Shop Ion is nonstop infomercials. Neither will be missed. I have constantly tried to get WGTE’s main channel, but it’s just too w...

Re: Changes probably coming soon at WPXD (ION).

"Ion Plus, Qubo and Shop Ion, which had been airing on multicast channels, effective Feb. 28." Not sure I'm going to miss anything there. Was there anything watchable on Ion Plus? "so it could stop paying stations to broadcast the Katz Network, which are Bounce, Court TV, Court TV Mystery, Grit and...

Changes probably coming soon at WPXD (ION).

I would assume WPXD will do the same as an ION affiliate.

Re: WNEM up for sale?

Would not surprise me if Scripps buys it. It then could run ION and the Katz subchannels.

Re: Not So Storm Ready

Woolfolk never moved to the Flint area. That says everything you need to know... He’s just waiting for an opportunity to jump ship. Spence, Bondy, Bajjey are the only people holding this station together right now. When they leave (not if), Sinclair might as well run us like WNWO in Toledo (which h...

Re: Ho... Ho... No Pay Raises

You should go work for Scripps, sinklair.

They seem to be doing quite well. Warren Buffett even chipped in cash for their purchase of ION media.

Re: WTVS Channel 56.5

Already showing some programming right now.

It’s a kids channel, so it got whacked just like 56.2 and that god awful TBD on 50.4 and that country crap channel on 50.5.

Re: DISH Network supports quality TV in Lansing, Grand Rapids and other locations

The best thing about the Detroit DMA is there are no Nexstar or Sinclair stations.

Re: Evolution of Cable TV Channels.

I much prefer WeatherNation over TWC. WN just reports the weather, not much else. That’s a good thing.

Re: Flint viewers left behind again

I agree Sinklair. It is incredibly odd to me that Sanilac county is in the Detroit DMA. I live mostly in the Detroit DMA, but am also up here a decent amount of time as well. What the Thumb really needs is a 100 to 150 kW repeater for the Flint DMA main .1 channels if done via UHF. Just south of Ba...

Now I am not sure exactly what it is. If there is any sign of religious or a selling crap channel...poof...it’s gone.
