Wyandotte Cable retires scrolling TV listings

Post by mtburb » Thu Jul 04, 2019 1:28 pm

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 TERMINATED BY PROGRAMMER
Today we made the change to POPTV without the onscreen guide on channel 19. POP no longer offers the guide service and today the data stream from their server no longer is providing guide data. We’re now carrying their regular programming. This change is entirely POP’s decision. Wyandotte Cable would have continued offering their guide if they still carried it, but they no longer could make a business case for keeping the service active.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause but this matter is beyond our control.
So, in short, Pop forced Wyandotte Cable to drop their scrolling listings and carry the network in it's entirety. Not sure if this also affects any other cable system nationwide that still carries scrolling listings on Pop's channel space.


My furthest DTV tropo: KDKA Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania at 202 miles for three days in January 2017 and a night in September 2017 with only an Antennas Direct C2V!

Current setup: Antennas Direct C2Max (2018-present)

Buckeye, AFAIK, carries a scrolling guide with local ads on the top half (channel 20 in Sandusky, channel 56 in Toledo, channel 70 in Bedford). Pop is carried in full on channel 205
