It's not Videotron's fault. On Tuesday there was a fire on a transmission tower that damaged an antenna used by WCAX and WPTZ (see the article here). In this article on WCAX's website they say that they're getting temporary antennas tonight (Wednesday, Nov. 20) and will be going to the transmission tower tomorrow to assess the damage.
Correct. In my case it should be NBC plattsburgh but Videotron is showing NBC Detroit instead. I realized by not showing MACYS Thanksgivig parade, but local detroit parade??? Also shows are not as whown in the guide.
Anybody else in this situation?
Is this because of that Tower fire reported in Vermont?
Hi cbalderr. Regarding the Detroit feed on NBC, it's a redirected feed because of the tower fire. As soon as the tower is up an running in Vermont, the right feed will be shown. Have yourself a good day!
They are currently installing the new antenna over in Vermont, making the signal unavailable for a while. In the meantime, we are patching in the signal from Detroit and waiting for our partners to finish with the new installation. This means there can be some disperencies between the guide (which shows the usual schedule) and the content (which is Detroit's).
Here is an article from WCAX about this situation: https://www.wcax.com/2020/07/28/wcax-must-temporarily-power-down-over-the-air-signal-wednesday/
Thank you for you understanding,
