Cosi TV not broadcasting in HD

I'm having a problem with Cosi TV channel 935 here in the Boston area. As of Friday June 22nd it is not broadcasting in HD widescreen but in a SD or letter box format. I have contacted  Cosi via facebook and twitter with no reply. I can get all the other channels in widescreen so Cosi is the only one I am having a problem with. Is anyone else having a similar experience? Thanks

You might want to contact the local broadcast station that is sending out COSI via one of its subchannels.

I wouldn't know how to contact them except through their website, which I have done.

It looks like your Cozi comes from WBTS. According to the Wikipedia article, Cozi is 480i (not HD), but is supposed to be broadcast as 16:9, which means your box was just 'converting' it to HD. You can contact the station to see if they altered their signal. Comcast typically just passes on what is broadcast. It looks like it is also duplicated as 1171 on Comcast, so you can double-check to see if that one is any different.

Thanks for the info. I have tweeted and written an email with no reply after 7 days. I just posted to their facebook page. Maybe they will answer that.

 

As for the 4 digit channels.  I do not believe they are different channels just a different way to display the existing HD channels.
