They need to give WTVS time to test on RF20.
With another rescan today I see WTVS testing on 56.7 with bars and tone.

Is it just me or is channel 7 WXYZ current off the air? I've tried multiple rescans and have gotten nothing.
I learned today from one of my former co-workers that Channel 7 is operating at half-power with a side mounted antenna until the switchover this weekend.

WXYZ is testing on channel 25.1, just a test pattern and tone.
I just cleared all my channels and did a complete re-scan and I also picked up 25.1 as you did as well as 21.1 which is WWJ-TV airing bars & tone at present.

Re: 2/11 Is WXYZ off the air for the repack?

Is it just me or is channel 7 WXYZ currently off the air? It appears that today (Sunday-Feb. 16, 2020 at 6PM and probably earlier as well they are off (OTA) again. They're probably using the break in the weather to their advantage. I left my flat screen on in case it came back and sure enough at ab...

Seems like this was a really big story when it first happened but now the MSM seems to be not interested.
It's primarily a Chicago story so the priority is there not here unless it is needed for fill.

Re: Three CBS-Owned CW Stations Add Nightly News

As a Dish subscriber I was able to double box the two shows. I had 50 on the left and 38 on the right. They're both weak as they are limited by just the half hour. 50 had less than 15 minutes of news with what I will call "fill" for the rest of the half hour. The weather segment was OK but don't lo...
