    Looks like KGTV has added yet another sub channel (10.4, Escape TV).

    They must be squeezing the bitrate way down on their sub-channels now.
    I noticed MeTV has been getting lower and lower video quality with dropouts when there is fast motion like with a scene with fire lately!

    I observed that 10.1 (ABC) bit rate dropped 20% from what it was before adding Escape.

    I guess Quantity over Quality is good for KGTV. At least ABC is 720p not 1080i.

    Has anyone been able to figure out the bitrate for all 4 subchannels of KGTV?

    According to TSReader, the bit rates are a bit variable. I saw
    10.1 (ABC) 9.2 - 10.5 Mbps
    10.2 (MeTV) 2.7 - 3.0 Mbps
    10.3 (LAFF) 2.0 - 2.38 Mbps
    10.4 (ESCAPE) 1.75 - 2.0 Mbps

    All I can say is I'm glad ABC decided to use 720p for broadcast feed, because 4 subchannels is a lot. I miss the days when OTA stations had their main channel at about 14Mbps bitrate
