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


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
