TV Programming Guide

On January 29, 2011, Joe Seaton asked: Where can i find a television guide for the local over-the-air channels? Personally, I use TitanTV to program my EyeTV box that I use for recording.

Blizzard of 2011 – HD Weather Closings

2011

In September 2011, this site will celebrate its 10th anniversary. Who would have thought that less than 10 years later, Wheel of Fortune would be in HD on KOCO-DT, along with a number of other syndicated shows, including Seinfeld on KWTV-DT.

Housekeeping

There was no special reason except that before I disabled registration we had about 20 or so ‘bot spammers registering each day to try to inject stuff into the database.

Someone notified me on Twitter today that KWTV-DT 9.3 is off the air. For those of you who don’t know, 9.3 was used by KWTV during its most recent transition back from its VHF channel to its UHF channel to show a message asking viewers to rescan their channels to pick up the new UHF […]

KOCO Channel 5 News Now in Widescreen SD

As a few people have pointed out, KOCO is now broadcasting its news in HD. I’m not exactly sure when this started, but it’s happened in the last week or so. This means more than half of the major network affiliates now have local news in HD with only KWTV and KOKH trailing the pack. […]

Clear QAM Channels on Cox

Taddeusz writes: I’m not sure when it happened but KFORDT, KFORDT2, KOCODT, and KOCODT2 are currently available on two separate clear QAM channels in the OKC area, 84 and 116. Previously they were only on channel 84. I wonder if Cox is planning on moving those from 84 to 116 and they are keeping both […]
