NBC Gone For Many Bay Area Viewers

from the bye-bye dept

If you live in the Bay Area it’s been difficult to miss all the news reports about how NBC had ditched their affiliation with KRON 4 in San Francisco in favor of KNTV 3 in San Jose. For the past few weeks any time you watched channel 4, they told you how NBC had pulled their shows off, but they were going to keep going as KRON 4 without any of the NBC shows. Now, many people who don’t have cable are simply without NBC completely, despite this being the 5th largest market. The San Jose broadcast isn’t strong enough to reach parts of San Francisco and Oakland. Earlier this evening I went hunting for the new NBC, and for me (and my cable system) it turns out that “channel 3” actually means “channel 11”. So, despite all the advertisements telling me to check out channel 3 to find NBC, it turns out that NBC 3 is really on channel 11. That’s helpful.
