WSEE signal strength.

I have noticed that WSEE and WICU are being slowly bled to death by Lilly Broadcasting. The ENG Cameras WICU uses are pieces of crap. Lilly refuses to replace them at all. The station is as close to unwatchable as it has ever been. WSEE uses some form of JVC MiniDV and records on a firestore system. WSEE video is just as poor quality as WICU. However, WJET shoots on Panasonic P2 and is the best looking video in the Erie market.

WSEE sux!

Funny! WSEE keeps running news reports telling its viewers how to get WSEE Digital. As of today here are the locations in Erie County you cannot receive WSEE-DT OTA: Scattered parts of Erie City, North East, Fairview, Girard, Platea, Albion, Edinboro, Corry, Harborcreek, Lawrence Park and Wattsburg.

WSEE is averaging 35 to 50 phone calls a day from irate viewers.

Lets hear it for brian Lilly, Scott Bremner and the rest of the incompetants at Lilly Broadcasting.

Lilly Broadcasting has ruined both 12 & 35. Brian Lilly is taknig the money and laughing all the way to the bank. Just wait until 35's news merges with 12...then you'll have half the people doing twice the work...and probably have the same newscast on both channels.

Scott Bremner was quoted on pressandtower.com as saying that "WSEE and WICU news are not going to merge" and then went on to belittle anyone who says they are merging.

It's odd that Scott Bremner seems to speak anytime someone, anyone mentions WICU. Did Scott get a promotion? Is he going to run the merged news department? Stay tuned....

Since the tower was struck I guess a lot of people in the county aren't getting WQLN anymore either. Calls to the station are mostly ignored.

I also am having the same problem, I went out and bought a new digital TV and still cannot receive their signal, yet I get WJET, FOX 66 and WQLN on the digital channels but no WSEE-when I called they say they are being flood with calls and send me to someone's voice mail with no response and I called on Saturday!!!! Then last night they say best bet is to put antenna in attic or crawl space--hello I have no attic I am a renter live on first floor-- then they say move the antenna around and around and it should catch the signal--NOT--last but not least they say it may be time to invest in a roof top antenna--WHAT-this is the 20th century though we were supposed to be going forward not backward why would I pay for a rooftop antenna when I dont even own my house--guess wont be watching their channel anytime soon!!

WSEE really effed this one up! I guess they are being flooded with phone calls - to the tune of a couple hundred a day! I know of a half dozen people who installed NEW outdoor antennas and still cannot receive WSEE. WOW! They all live in North East township. Thanks WSEE - try explaining away this one.

Can't wait until June when no one can get TV. The calls will really fly then

I heard Lilly placed an order for 10 new P2 HD hand held cameras - does that have something to do with this?

I have Direct TV and would have been charged some ridiculous amount to get the locals,so I use the "box," and an antenna and the signals are lousy. I had no trouble with getting the analog signals. If you are considering getting a dish, be aware that you may have to pay extra for locals. Depending on your location. I live way far away in Belle Valley and I guess the expense is tremendous to send their signal way out here.

wsee has had a poor signal even when they came on the air, fuzzy at best, even with a UHF antenna and aluminum foil to help catch the signal!!

I am totally fed up with WSEE.
I can't see why CBS doesn't pull the plug on they being an affiliate - and this is off Lorac satellite.
Whenever I try to watch "The Young and The Restless" or "The Bold and The Beautiful" the picture is way too dark - and this is on my brand new Phillips 52" flatscreen.
The WSEE clips appear bright and fine but not the
original CBS feeds - don't their technical people watch watch's leaving the station?

Not watching soap operas makes you smarter. You should thank Lilly.

No! They don't have anyone left. The signal is only a pass through - the signal is fine in Brian Lilly's office, he's pretty much the only one left in the building these days.
