Wyandotte Cable retires scrolling TV listings

Apparently, until today, Wyandotte Cable was the last cable provider in the Detroit market to still carry TV listings carried over from the Prevue/TV Guide days. An employee of Wyandotte Cable just posted this announcement on the Wyandotte residents Facebook group: CHANNEL 19 GUIDE SERVICE TERMINATE...

Re: Helping someone get WJBK OTA in SW Wyandotte

I have a finishing update: Susan fooled around with her antenna today and got WJBK to come in again! She doesn't know if it will last or not. She announced this two hours ago.

WDIV had a couple NBC localized slogans in the late 1980s.
Here's two I can think of right now:

Come Home To The Best, Only On Channel 4! (1988-1990)
WDIV, The Place To Be! (1990-1991)

Is the water tower to her north? because that might be causing interference, especially if it's a massive metal structure like the one we have here in Windsor...

Re: Helping someone get WJBK OTA in SW Wyandotte

If this help matters at all, Susan's house only has one floor, though the immediate neighborhood has some two-floor houses. As of today, she is still not getting WJBK.

WXYZ at 50% power

Due to a transmitter issue earlier today, WXYZ was running at 50% power a half hour ago, possibly still is right now. They're working to get it fixed ASAP. Has this had an effect on your reception of WXYZ?

She can usually get WJBK Fox 2, but once in a while, especially when it gets windy, she has problems with it. But for the last couple weeks, she has had major problems getting i...

Re: Network programming preemptions by individual stations

Tonight, WXYZ is pushing reruns of The Conners and American Housewife to 1:07 AM-2:07 AM, and dumping The List, to air a Rocket Mortgage Classic pregame show.

As of yesterday, the station is gone from the lineup.

Re: Network programming preemptions by individual stations

Preemption alert on WDIV: A special about the Detroit Grand Prix will air tomorrow night in the 7 PM hour, bumping Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy! to the 8 PM hour, in turn pushing the first hour of Blindspot's two-hour season finale to Me TV 4.3.
