A friend pointed out to me that WYFF has a new channel on the air. It's WYFF-SC 4.3. The channel doesn't have any programming besides color bars. Anyone in Upstate SC know what this channel will be?

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.

I find it interesting they use -SC.  Could it be a sub-channel focused on South Carolina somehow?

Or -SC means, bear with me now, Sub-Channel.

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


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.

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.
