Digital TV allows a station to air sub-channels, usually listed as -2, -3, etc. These additional networks offer a variety of programs different from the main channel. Satellite systems do not carry the sub-channels, but cable systems and over the air viewers can see the channels.
We have been running Justice on 17-3, which slid to 17-2, (Spectrum ch 1245), and added Grit on 17-3 (Spectrum ch 1246) and Escape on 17-4 (not on Spectrum) yesterday afternoon. Sadly, we had to say goodbye to Antenna TV on 17-2, but I’m sure another station will pick it up soon.
Some TV sets may require re-scanning the channels for the new sub-channels to show up, and some may require a simple add in the add/delete menus.
PSIP program guides are correct on air, but will be wrong for a week or so on cable and TiVo until the new data is ingested.
