    No, I don't have Netflix/Hulu, but I do have cable (via BHN/Spectrum. Unfortunately, the version of Spectrum I have only has local channels, plus C-SPAN, TBS, and Bay News 9 (the 24/7 local news channel).

    Could be a temporary problem, but it appears WUSF has dropped 16-2 and 16-3 from OTA. Only seeing 16-1 and 16-4 coming in on scans now.

    Don't go around acting like the world owes you a favor. It was here first.

    Bryon or anyone else; are the OTA subchannels all back on the air? I am out of the area and have no way of verifying WUSF OTA.

    I did notice a week or so ago, that one of WFTS's subchannel's (28.2-Laff) was off the air for an hour or so, but 28.2 was on cable at that time. I'm thinking that with most people paying to watch on cable that some stations might be skimping in maintainance.....hoping I'm wrong.

    Both yesterday and today, I am receiving 16-1 through 16-4 all with equal (numerical) signal strength. Doesn't seem to be any problems.

    Thanks DWTPA 97, goes it must have been a maintainance issue and not the prelude to signing off forever....just yet!

    WTTA channel 38 has also sold their spectrum for nearly $20M. So that makes two stations going off air in Tampa, channels 16 & 38.

    That's crazy how much money was made from all these stations signing off:

    I'm gonna assume that Nexstar will move "Great 38" to a sub channel of WFLA while virtually no one with cable or satellite will have any idea this occured.

    Those few who still use antennŠ will find the station's missing until they initiate a re-scan.

    The thing is, lots of people are still watching OTA despite the fact that the content BLOWS. In fact, there are people watching OTA now that haven't watched it in 20 years or more. That's why it's funny that they're deciding to pull the plug now. Just last year there were all these articles about people ditching cable and putting up antennas. My parents did it. Several friends have done it. At my house I was content with rabbit ears, and the 30 or so channels I got. I don't watch much TV anyway. But that's the direction things are going, pretty soon they won't be selling TV's with tuners anymore. When they got rid of analog the writing was on the wall. The government/corporations want terrestrial broadcasting (as we know it) to die already. They want that spectrum, and ultimately they want us to pay the price for it. Broadcasting was a beautiful thing, it was supposed to be a public service for the good of the community. That idea is long dead. They're more than glad to cash out now that they've ruined the entire medium of terrestrial broadcasting.... too dramatic?

    Yes because it's not true.
