I get the Baton Rouge local channels OTA. Ever since the frequency reassignment I can't pick up WBXH (low power "affiliate" of WAFB), formerly channel 39.1 reassigned to 32.1.
Anyone able to pick up this channel? I'm in SE BR and get weak signals from Lafayette and New Orleans but absolutely nothing from a signal broadcast from the tower at WAFB's facility on Government Street.
TIA

Do you get regular WAFB over the air? Last time I checked (during last football season) they were the only one I couldn't get, someone told me that they want you to pay the $6 for the CBS access

I receive WAFB OTA and always could (I had an antennae connected to my TV as a backup even when I had U-Verse). WAFB's broadcast tower isn't located in the cluster with other BR stations so you may need to reposition your antennae.

(I can watch WBXH on one of the subsignals from WAFB's main signal but I would prefer to watch the 1080i signal instead of the 480 SD signal)

Found this file that is continually being updated in Google Docs. It shows every regional TV viewing area in the country and compares which streaming service has which local channels available.

This came in handy when I was deciding which service to get my Mom in Shreveport. Wherever you are it can tell you what's available.

That chart is incorrect or needs updating. DirecTV Now has been broadcasting the local CBS and Fox affiliates in Baton Rouge for a few months now.

I'm looking at cutting out my Cox tv service. I'm currently spending ~$130/month on it. I can get everything the wife and I watch by going with just Hulu's + Live TV package for about ~$45/month.

I'm on the Cox chat waiting to see if they will try to match that price. If so, no reason to cut (until the price goes up again). If not, buh-bye Cox tv.

First offer: adding all the premium channels (Starz, Cinemax, HBO, etc) and bumping up my TV package and adding a voice line for the same price I am paying now.

My response: "Uhm... I'm trying to lower my bill, not raise it or keep it the same".

Next response from Cox: "I totally understand, however, this promo is way much better from what you are currently paying as the monthly rate was of $228 for Preferred D3 speed and Contour TV, only."

My response: "Again, I don't think you are grasping the concept of 'lowering my bill'."

...and that's when they gave my the Customer Loyalty number. lulz!

Your best bet would probably be to try contacting WGNO directly. I doubt it's a network (ABC) issue as the ABC affiliate here in Baton Rouge appears to be available through Hulu.

The cord has been cut. The best Cox could do would still have me paying $40-$50/month over what I will with streaming (and that's after losing the $10/month discount on my INET for bundling).

Hulu has already been set up (with HBO for GoT). All I have to do now is add it to the TV when I get home.

How stable is it? APK? Have you used gears? Is it as stable as something like gears?

We dumped DISH.

Have ROKU and tend to watch HULU, Amazon Prime and ESPN. Have Firestick on the 3rd and rarely watched set.

paying like $50 or so a month. DISH didn't even try to compete.

I use the tivimate apk to run it and it feels like set tv.

I haven't used gears. Seems over priced.

How is the stability? I’m willing to drop 40 bucks for 6 months just to test it. Gears is more expensive than most, but stable AF.

It has been pretty stable. Not 1 buffer last night for the championship game. $40 buys you a year

First off... If you have a Sony TV be warned that Hulu DGAF about your desire to watch their Live TV offering. The Bravia series (and possibly all Sony's) use the Android platform and Hulu has said they aren't interested in working Live TV through it. Guess what type of TV I have...

Luckily I have a jailbroken Firestick I got when Kodi was all the rage so I have been able to do my Hulu through it.

Next... The Live TV menu is a bit clunky and you can't view it while also watching a show. Also, the stream initially starts out at around 480p then improves over the next few minutes (maybe it's doing some sort of "soft" buffering?). After that it's fine.

The only thing I watch often this seems to be missing is the Weather Channel but for an extra $50/month back in my pocket, I can live without it.


Need an opinion from any posters with more experience... Any thoughts on if a newer Firestick might run a bit better?
