Try 9. 64.1 through 64.9, and guess where the shopping networks that used to be on 43’s subs went to? Yep.

What are the sub-channels?

Can you list them?

WLLA be like "How many subchannels can we have?"
"Fuck it, let's find out!"

WACX in Orlando, FL has 11 (!!) subchannels. Amazingly, I was still able to get a decent signal from them near Universal Orlando (from a sixth floor room facing Bithlo) on my Milanix portable TV. WACX is on RF 7 to boot

WHNE-CA channel 3 in Detroit has twelve (!!!) subchannels.

I suspect carriage of home shopping networks is a form of revenue generation for niche / little known broadcasters such as WLLA.


Using Robinhood for online equities and options trades is a terrible idea. USE A LEGITIMATE BROKER-DEALER INSTEAD! (Fidelity, Schwab, TD Ameritrade, Edward Jones, etc.)

Indeed, I'm very much assuming that it's the shop-at-home channels that brought this about. It's been fun watching WLLA's Facebook posts.

On May 27, they posted that they'd installed a new mux encoder--and that doing so allowed for adding a few more channels. Replies from others quickly raised disappointment that the 3 subchannels added were all shop-at-home ones.

I observed at one point after then that they had 64-2 MeTV back transmitting in HD, versus how they had reverted it to SD upon their addition of 64-6 Dabl a few months ago. But alas, it didn't last. MeTV is back to SD.

Other posts by the station in the subsequent days documented having to revert to the prior equipment, then trying again after applying new firmware.

Finally on June 4th, their last post about going onto the new equipment again seemed to document the final configuration being in place.

I've checked a few times since, and MeTV has remained SD. But the new encoder is apparently working out well, as Dabl and the 3 shop-at-homes all seem quite sharp, with no tiling like Dabl was having in early May and prior as I channel-surfed through.

Cheers! ~~ Statmanmi
