Philly-Area Stations Keep Both Signals

Feb 19, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Philadelphia-area television stations will continue broadcasting both analog and digital signals, although some New Jersey and Pennsylvania stations in towns such as Atlantic City and Pittsburgh switched to digital on the original Feb. 17 date, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Stuart Marks, who lives in the Pocono region of Pennsylvania, bought a converter box to prepare, yet can’t pick up the digital signal from nearby Scranton, Pa., although he’s able to receive analog signals from Philadelphia, the Pocono Record reports.

  1. My grandmother lives just outside of Scranton and refuses to get cable. She has both a UHF and VHF rooftop antenna. It was there over 50 years.
    As part of the conversion WBRE and WYOU switched from UHF to VHF. She receives WBRE, but not WYOU. She receives two VHF digital channels from Binghamton, NY, but not WYOU from Scranton.
