CHWI-DT - Digital Television

Digital Television

As part of Canada's transition to digital television, CHWI-TV flash-cut to digital on August 31, 2011, using its former analog channels 16 and 26. CHWI's Windsor repeater had moved its analog signal in January 2011 to channel 26 from channel 60 due to the removal of channels 52 and higher from the television spectrum upon the transition to digital.

In addition, CHWI-TV-60 has been authorised to relocate its analog transmitter to channel 26, and to switch its digital allotment from 25 to 26, due to the phaseout of all channels 52 and up. However, the CRTC decision did not address the situation regarding WLPC-LP in Detroit, which also broadcast its analog signal on channel 26 (an unprotected frequency); as a result, that station was off the air during much of 2011, not returning to air until November 2011 as WLPC-LD, on digital channel 40.

Famous quotes containing the word television:

    It is not heroin or cocaine that makes one an addict, it is the need to escape from a harsh reality. There are more television addicts, more baseball and football addicts, more movie addicts, and certainly more alcohol addicts in this country than there are narcotics addicts.
    Shirley Chisholm (b. 1924)
