    It look like KPTV and KPDX are getting some digitnets

    KPDX 49.2 Escape
    KPTV 12.3 Laff Network

    Nothing has been assign to 12.2 yet. Escape is a sister network to Grit. Which currently being show on KUNP 47.3

    On some translators across the state, KPTV/KPDX are dual cast on the same RF Channel. Not sure if they will put diginet programing. On the third digital channel or not.

    AAnd add to this the recent discovery that KOIN is working on a multicast channel, but they can’t say anything about it until at least May.

    This could be an interesting summer for Portland TV fans. KOIN, KPTV, and KPDX all adding multis, and the recent buyout of KPXG (formerly KECH) raises questions about where Ion et al will go when Daystar takes over sometime this year.

    And of course, the big question is: Will Comcast take these newcomers? Someone in the comments section to the linked article above asked why Meredith has waited so long to add multis. One could ask the same for KOIN’s new ownership!

    Best, Mike šŸ˜‰

    Good times for cord cutters. šŸ™‚

    Man, I’ve got no regrets. Got fiber for a song, which is kind of amazing really. Between streaming, buying al-a-carte, and the few bits we like OTA, life in TV land is pretty great and pretty cheap.

    ION Network is staying put on KPXG-TV 22. It’s the low power station KPXG-LP 42 that going to Daystar ownership. KGWZ-LP currently has Daystar programing.

    At one time KPTV and KOIN did have second digital channel before 2010. The second channel was broadcasting SD feed of each station.

    Before KPTV, KPDX and KOIN start these new feeds. A new encoder will have to be installed. Many stations around the nation are making this upgrade in digicast services.
