Broadcast Television Stations in Duluth

Duluth TV station logos

Below is an updated look at what’s on the television dial in Duluth after the reorganizing at KBJR/KDLH. Don’t let the big “3” fool you on the new KDLH logo (which doesn’t have the letters KDLH on it, but does have the CBS eye); the CBS affiliate is now on broadcast channel 6.2. If you are watching with a satellite dish or cable, then the KDLH/CBS station is channel 3.

Update: WDSE-TV has dropped its “2nd Chance” programming on channel 8.2 and adopted a new broadcasting stream, PBS Explore, which is focused heavily on programs for children.

Thanks for the info.  I saw the announcement during Colbert last week but couldn't find any info about it online.

Thanks for the info.  I get my T.V. the old fashioned way, free over the air.  Since moving to the heart of the city  a year and a half ago, I have never been able to get FOX21, no matter which antenna I use and after repeated channel scans.  I have a newer smart T.V.  Has anyone else had this experience or have any tips on what I might try?  I get all the other channels listed above, including 27.1

This is unacceptable.  Now to watch CBS I have to press 3 buttons?!  I used to only have to press 1!

Does anyone know if the move to a "subchannel" will reduce the quality of the picture for CBS?  Kinda seems like it but I'm not 100% sure.  Pretty lame if it does.

Looks like it is possible to have 2 HD channels on one channel
2× 720p HDTV channels (7.8 Mbit/s each) 	+ 1 	480p or 480i SD subchannel (~3.8 Mbit/s)

What is the best direction to point my digital antenna to pick up network broadcasts in Duluth? Should I point it toward downtown or Antenna Hill? My steel siding blocks one or the other direction unless I put it 30 feet up on my roof.

I don't think there is a general direction to point antennas that provides the best reception. There are a bunch of factors involved no matter where you are. If I'm not receiving a channel I move the antenna and eventually it comes in and I lose reception on two other sets of channels. 

I think drilling an external antenna on your roof is probably the best way to get good reception, but who the hell likes TV that much?

I haven't been able to receive channel 6 NBC in my front room, which is across from St. Luke's Hospital parking lot, for quite some time ... and now with channel 3 CBS, switching over to 6.2 I cannot pull either station in. The signal sent out is even weaker in the evening! I cannot afford cable ... most distressing!
