CW 30 and BYU 11 Update

After trying to get CW 30 and KBYU 11 on my portable Eviant TV using its built in rod antenna, and failing miserably, I did a Google search that confirmed my suspicion that both transmitters are NOT located on Mt Pisgah! Nope, they're on Clarkston Ridge to the West!

KBYU11 arrives in Cache County

KBYU (11.1),  BYU-TV (11.2), and Create (11.3) have been available to Cache county resident for some time - IF you're able to pick it up from the Franklin County translators to the North. This has left a whole bunch of people - notably, those East of Main ST (Rt 91 / Rt 165), especially those on the east bench without their BYU "fix". Not to fear, Cache County has come to the rescue! KBYU (PBS, 720p), BYU TV (BYU, 720P), and CREATE (PBS, 480i) are now available for your viewing pleasure. If you aren't currently getting channel 11.1-11.3, please select "re-scan" or "add new channels" from your TV or converter's menu.

For those of you unfamiliar with KBYU 11, it is operated by Brigham Young University in Provo, UT. It is a PBS affiliate (on 11.1) and LDS religious channel (on 11.2), along with PBS Create (on 11.3)


CW30 and TCN arrive in Cache Valley

CW30.1 and TCN 30.2
A few months back, I posted that CW30 was available in Cache county - and Franklin county, also - as channel 4.30. Unfortunately, 4.30 is an SD subchannel of channel 4, and NOT in wide screen. This makes watching Saturday Night Live on CW30 rather annoying, especially during Weekend Update, since the right and left side of the screen are cut off. (Click "Read More" below to see photo) For those of you that are thinking, "Wait, isn't SNL on NBC?", why yes it is! But here in Utah, our local NBC affiliate, channel 5 KSL, is owned by the LDS church. And the LDS church has made the decision for all Utah residents that SNL is inappropriate - because, you know, you can't make that decision for yourself, as your TV set is not equipped with a channel selector or "off" button. (Yes, that's sarcasm!)
