I noticed yesterday that Ion Television is already back on our Xfinity lineup and Court TV is gone.

In Philly, Grit is now on the ION station (WPPX) as well as WDPN 2. That expands Grit's reach as WDPN is a low VHF station, which isn't easy to receive with an indoor antenna and a lot of UHF only antennas. WPPX is likely easier to pick up.

And Laff is also now on WPPX. Laff airs on WPVI, another VHF station, albeit not a low VHF.

With exception of Home Improvement on Laff, I think Laff doesn't have a whole lot of appeal, but that's another point.

Actually, WPVI broadcasts on physical channel 6, which is a low VHF channel.
They are one of a handful of digital TV stations whose physical & virtual channels are the same.

You're correct. WPVI is on 6 RF which is still in the low VHF range.

Just my experience is WDPN is even harder to receive than WPVI. Had UHF antennas that somehow got 6 but not 2 but finally got an antenna that supported low VHF and get both 2 and 6. I'm not sure if being on 6 is closer to the higher VHF that makes it easier to pick up with some high VHF/UHF antennas.

This is my new lineup in my area
Out of Chicago:
38-2 Court TV Mystery
38-3 Court TV
38-4 Laff
Out of Milwaukee:
55-2 Bounce on a higher reception, would prefer Decades though
55-3 Court TV
55-4 Grit

That makes it 4 Court TV channels now.
Anyone know if the other channels will be changing too? It was bad enough to have duplicate channels but now 3 or 4 of the same channels is ridiculous to say the least.

Chicago and Milwaukee are different markets. But the duplication within a given market is probably wasteful.

ION with Katz is new, but the Comet channel has been on two competing unrelated stations (WPHL and WPSG) in my market for awhile.
