WBXZ Channel 56 (RF17) is now on the air from the HSBC building in downtown Buffalo try and see if you can get them.

Comments on their facebook page are that people in Whitby, and Scarborough are able to pick this new channel up pretty good.

They're in the testing mode right now so it's older "public domain' programming

WBXZ will be home to COZI, Retro TV, PBJ and Heartland. They hope to get Movies! too.

56-1 thru 56-6.

Thank you for the heads up, but so far black screen (as in no signal) for DTV 56, and I played a lot with my indoor antenna located very close to the balcony facing Lake Ontario. Eglinton Ave E and McCowan Rd in Scarborough.
We don't know transmitter's power and height yet.
As soon as I get it on, I'll post back in this very thread.

All the best.

PS I don't think their signal is ever gonna cross Lake Ontario, at least for now:

They are using a low-powered transmitter.

Is there a service available to stream ION and WBBZ?

I live NW of Toronto and get most of the Buffalo stations with a decent antenna and preamp on a 48' tower. ION and WBBZ are the two that are missing. TVFOOL shows ION to be 2edge. WBBZ is just not there despite having a VHF fringe antenna.

If I set up a stream myself, HDHomeRun Plus could work if I set it up a friends house near Fort Erie. But I'd pretty much own his upload capacity when streaming.

Any idea's?
