WPXI-TV installs new translator to improve view access
WPXI-TV's new translator in New Castle will improve some viewers' access to the station's TV signal, the station announced Wednesday.
The translator will give viewers in Big Beaver, East Palestine, Ellwood City, New Wilmington, Slippery Rock and surrounding areas better access to WPXI's signal on digital TVs or with digital-to-analog converter boxes, according to WPXI, which is part of Atlanta-based Cox Media Group Inc.
The signal is broadcast on digital Channel 33, which should appear as 11.1 on TVs. Memorable Entertainment Television, or Me-TV, should appear as 11.2.
To receive the signal, viewers should rescan their converter boxes and digital TVs. Those with cable, fiber or satellite service will not be affected.
For more information, call WPXI's technical hotline at 412-918-8181.

TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
