I know they have some streaming content on their website, however, I do not believe they stream their live programming over the Internet.

Winter can leave now... Lets try to get above 50 degrees???

I've had less trouble with Direct then any other so if they take away a ch. I really don't care i'll adapt and move on, BUT if they touch my sports channel's I'll leave in a hot second!!

I don’t need your attitude thanks, I have one of my own!

for what seems a normal run of the mill TV channelKTLA seems to be quite a survivor. One of the first channels it was one of the few we got on the hill when cable was first available. It was right up there with CBS & NBC. I think Direct tries to bully the stations by not seeming to care if they lose the rights to a station KTLA seems secure enough in their market not to fold. I would guess almost all their customers (except Big Bear) can pull them in free

Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.

It isn't just KTLA. We lost the local Fox affiliate (channel 69) in the San Diego local feed from DirectTV. I found out when I went to play back Sunday's Nascar race that ended up taping as several hours of lame music with a 'this channel is blocked' message!

you missed a great finish.
did you do a search? It should be repeated on ESPN or somewhere?

I love the KTLA morning news and would suffer with out it. I am glad that Charter doesn't have the same problems as DirectTV does.

Charter kicked off FoxSportsWest a couple years ago so we switched to DirecTV so we could watch Angels baseball games.
Last I knew, Charter has FSW back, but until DirecTV does something to make us unhappy, we'll keep it.

Yeah, I've heard them announcing that on KTLA for awhile, bummer for those who have direct, I love KTLA! Someone, somewhere mentioned Charter was also going to stop carry Channel 6, anybody heard anything on that?


Yes, the info about Channel 6 was in our Charter bill.
'Effective on or after 4/25/12 Big Bear Lake ch 6 and Victorville Educational Access ch 6 located on Basic Service will no longer be available. Replacement programming is being considered and will be announced in the near future.'

We were sure surprised to hear that! What a shame to eliminate that BB channel. Wonder what happened to cause that...

Btw... I was hearing on the radio that you can still hear channel 5 if you've got the old rabbit ears for your TV or (ha!) antenna.

I haven't heard any details, so that sounds like it is worth searching for! Thanks!

Just saw a few minutes ago that DirecTV has settled their with Tribune Co so that they can carry these local channels again. Just tried it and we now get the San Diego Fox affiliate so those of you want the LA station should have it back now or very soon!

I don't get why KEYT which is in Santa Barbara, is not on DirecTV in Ventura which is only 30 miles away. KEYT is on channel 3 and there is no channel 3 in the lineup so there is space for it.

Well I guess I'll just sit here and blow up then, shall I?If Mr Spock is left brained, then why does he play an instrument?

Hi Owl,
I'm already on WU but the wiFi connection was disrupted when one of my Charter ports (?) quit on me. WU was installed on 2g and now only 5g is working. I'm waiting for tech support (Mrs. Crunch) to straighten it out.

Or if you already signed up for a WU station ID you can ad your Ambient station on there.

Cap'N what trouble with WU. On your Ambient dashboard click the devices tab on the left and then Weather underground and enter you device info.

Dian,
I too recently purchased the Ambient 2902(a) and am very pleased with it. The installation and console setup was a breeze. However, hooking up to Weather Underground was more challenging but I suspect that would be the case with Davis as well. I'm currently experiencing a problem with WU and if you're interested in learning more, send me a PM.

A while back I was also looking for that WX station thread. Just wanted to mention some more stuff about WS-2902(A). If you want to add another display console for another part of the house, you get the WS-1900. Same thing as 2902, just no wifi, which you don't want anyway. Conflicts reporting to web. I bought a complete WS-1900 for $92 shipped and now have extra display console AND complete sensor array (outside unit) which is exactly same as 2902 for replacement parts. A WS-1900 console only is about $53 shipped and that console & array sepparately is about $130.
