WYFF New channel?

I Would think maybe True Crime Network or H&I (Heroes & Icons), those seem to be  the big sub channel affiliations that Hearst has for most of there stations.  WYFF is already carrying MeTV.  

With that said--let us know what pops up on that channel.

Many of their stations still only have one subchannel, so this could be one of those channel-leasing deals to make some more $$$$$$. 

I don't have a problem with it if they only have one other subchannel (all of them otherwise have MeTV); it's never going to be promoted on the station itself, it'll be bit-starved to a contractual minimum, and they get money for it, and usually it can't get carried on cable because ShopeLC already buys five channel slots on a lineup there too. In these times, just take the money rather than packing the regular DT1 schedule with infomercial festivals.

Looking around at the Hearst stations on RabbitEars.info, It looks like WDSU and WLWT have picked up ShopLC.🙄

Yep. Sounds about right. I guess Hearst needed the money...

Yep, it's a smart business move. If you've got the channel space, might as well put it to use if you can make some money off it.

ShopLC went live on WLWT 5.3 as of Friday, April 30.

Wow. They absolutely know how to use bandwidth correctly. Got a 1080i? A 720p? Both? A 480i on top of that? Here's the solution: Add. More. Subchannels.

I expected it to be bit-starved because of hosting WSTR's 1.0 signal...but it actually uses more bandwidth than the MeTV sub on 5.2, same with WISN. You'd think a channel which consists mainly of still graphics and mainly still close-ups of jewelry wouldn't need so much bandwidth (WISN thankfully has a 12 Mbps picture on the main channel).

...and now they're getting rid of it.

 

WLWT is running a crawl on there saying that they will stop carrying ShopLC on April 30th, exactly one year later.

They're probably replacing it with Story TV.

Unless you are Morris, you don't have the space, but do it anyways. Hard to watch sports on ABC here in Lexington. I am waiting on a 36.9

I happened to catch Story TV late last night (now on KMBC's .3), and they were airing the "end of the world" stuff that appeared on the History Channel 10-12 years ago. After Armageddon, Mayan Mystery and so on...

ShopLC has also been dropped from WYFF 4.3, after one year. Apparently the contract ran out and Hearst did not renew. However Story remains on 4.4, but 4.3 has disappeared.
