    These two stations have twice delayed broadcasting in HDTV since last year. I was hoping to see the Superbowl on WFOR. They were supposed to be online Dec. 31, 2000. Now, it looks like May, 2001. WTVJ also had a similar push-back of the date.
    Does anyone in South Florida know what's going on? I'm purchasing a HDTV decoder in March-April and would love to see HDTV with my locals here soon.

    Dean,
    I believe WTVJ is almost ready to relocate to a new tower at the Dade/Broward line. Here in Broward I can't receive WTVJ on 6 or UHF. They want the Broward/Palm Beach market badly, so I suspect it won't be too long before they're up and running from the new tower.

    I've emailed both several times. Each time, I have not been responded to. ARGH!! [​IMG]
    By the way, do you know where the WTVJ Tower is located? Is it on site at their new broadcasting location? I sure hope so! I'm moving to western Coral Springs in two months. I'd like to think I'll have a solid signal from there.
    Thank you for the replies!

    Does anyone get HDTV in the south palm beach area? I did a search but could not find any info for this area.

    Michael, I get two HDTV stations in Boca Raton. WSVN which is worthless and ABC which has about 3-4 hours of HDTV a week. I have friends in Boynton Beach who can not pick up either of these two stations- it must depend on the size of your antenae. Supposedly CBS (WFOR) will be up May 1st.

    Thanks Brian. It's really annoying that we can't get HDTV especially since Adelphia really sucks. I only get about one day a week of desent feed from them. The rest of the time it's raining in my living room. I don't know why I'm still paying them. It would be nice to be able to get HDTV ota but I guess I'll just have to wait. I have Directv but thank god I made the jump to dvds last year.
