News about CW on WZTV

- Posted September 20th, 2021 at 8:43am
First, I would like to say that I will update this post as the morning goes along. First bit of news is that per the lineup on, the WZTV lineup will have TBD as WZTV 17.4.

Update: 9:59am - WZTV RF 20 lineup is as follows:

17.1 Fox 17
17.2 CW (720P)
17.3 Antenna
17.4 TBD
30.2 Get-TV
30.3 Comet

WTVF RF 36 is as follows:

5.1-5.3 (all the same)
58.1 DABL
58.2 Stadium
58.3 Charge!

WKRN RF 27 is as follows:

2.1-2.4 (all the same)
30.1 WUXP-MY

That is all the changes that has happened. Until more news breaks, that's all for now.

I'm glad MyTV is QAM16 (Robust Signal) carrier on ATSC 3.0 on RF 21 (WZTV) then.

TBD is GONE from the RF 30 (WUXP) ATSC 3.0 feed. It's now the CW. Too bad they couldn't have swapped out WKRN on the 16 carrier. Especially since SO many people have issues getting WKRN 1.0, and QAM256 is really only good for city, not rural reception. I wrote the engineer. Perhaps at some point they might consider swapping PLPs.

I could only get WKRN (RF 27) for a tiny bit of time early in the spring. Their tower location makes signal near impossible. Where I live its a VERY flaky ATSC 3.0, or cable TV.

In all this discussion...what about Channel 8.1 8.2 8.3? I live in Dickson, and because of Ch 8's tower location, I cannot receive their signal. Also, any word if THIS-TV will stay with WRTN?

As far as I know right now, there is nothing going on with WNPT channel 8. Also, I haven't heard anything about ThisTV staying or leaving WRTN.
