Where is Heroes and Icons TV Channel?

Is this going to replace KVOS or MeTV?

 

Have seen commercials for Heroes and Icons TV Channel on MeTV.

 

No idea what channel it is on.

 

Thanks!!!

Re: Where is Heroes and Icons TV Channel?

It's a local broadcast network, like MeTV (MeTV and H&I are part of Weigel Broadcasting). One of your local broadcast stations would need to carry it, then also have an agreement with Comcast to pass it on.

What is Channel 12.3?

 

Still unclear.

 

Thanks!

12.3 is the broadcast channel (using an antenna.) Also found a link to this (hopefully it covers you):

http://www.seattle.gov/Documents/Departments/SeattleIT/cable/Comcast_ChannelLineup_JAN2016.pdf

 

From that link, it looks like 343 is Movies!, which is 12.2. (MeTV is 12.1). You can look around 340-345 to see if H&I is there, as Comcast tends to bundle subchannels from a station together.

We don't currently offer Heroes and Icons in your area from local station KVOS-TV.

KVOS-TV has elected cable carriage for their Movies! sub-channel on channel 343 instead of Heroes & Icons. 

 

It's possible that KVOS Heros & Icons may be received in your area via an over-the-air antenna, depending on terrain and other factors - available over the air as mentioned above at 12.3.

Very bummed that Comcast is not offering Heroes and Icons channel in my area.

 

Seems odd that KVOS is offering Movies! on sub channel 343 instead of Star Trek.

 

With all the tech companies and geeks in Seattle, one would think replacing Movies! with Heroes and Icons would garner more viewers....

 

Sigh....

Re: Where is Heroes and Icons TV Channel?

A couple of days ago H &I changed to Me tv . Still could get the programming even though the listed programing did not match what was on at that time . Then yesterday ME tv would not come up at all and said they were trying to reconnect the signal. Today it redirected me to channel 76 and that was a shopping channel and does not broadcast any of the shows H & I had . It does say it will broadcast those shows between 6 pm and 11pm however when i advance to see what those shows will be they are not listed. If H & I is a part of the Comcast broadcast then I would ask why doesnt Comcast know what and when shows are being broadcast . Who has oversight over the shows being shown on Comcast . In other words who is in charge of getting us the shows as they were presented previously when we signed up for Comcast?

H&I is not related to Comcast. It is a broadcast network carried by a local TV station. Several stations recently underwent ownership changes that caused a change in what networks are being carried. Comcast simply passes on what is broadcast by the station.

H&I TV is on my premium channel package in North Suburban Chicago--

I also have ION TV on my premum package.

 

I am getting a second place near the city --does xfinity starter package have those two channels which I think are channels 238 for ION and 358 for H&I?

responsese  on specific channels, sad to say, are not the easiest things to get from xfinity.

 

When the website compares channels they do not included a lot of these outlier channels in the comparison.

As far as I know, all local broadcast is included with most any video package that includes local channels.

Thanks--I did find it late last night-I am downgrading my service to save a few bucks in retirement and H&I has the old shows I like, which admittedly are old but take up a good portion of my day.

 

The entire experience is getting too complex to absorb as we get older, even though I consider myself up to date  and somewhat "hip". After all I did figure out how to link to you and eventually I did figure out the code for the channels I like.

I also figured out for myself I can only downgrade a little as I need to keep the HD technology, and then for another $10 a month I need to decide whether to keep the extreme internet or go to blast--but I use a vpn so that diminishes speed too-especially the upload speed.
