  1. I don’t like the way the CW Network is set up now. They put it on 4.2, which is Comet, and they put CW part time. Also, it is no longer in HD, they are going to have sports on CW. It doesn’t make sense!!!!

  2. As you know, KSTW has for years now been promoted as “CW 11.” So…. since this is on a subchannel, how will Sinclair promote this change to the Puget Sound area….. “CW 4.2” ? “Or simply “Seattle’s CW” ? (Down here in Oregon, Salem-licensed but Portland-based KRCW Channel 32, which is part of a Nexstar-owned duopoly with Portland-licensed-and-based KOIN 6, simply calls itself “Portland’s CW” without any reference to over-the-air or cable channel).
