Due to an unforeseen last minute issue, Greensboro will not launch Tuesday September 28. New date is October 26.

The market is technically ready to go. The issue is a non-technical issue that is a showstopper that cropped up literally at the last minute that caught everyone off guard and not enough time to do what needed to be done and launch on time.

For those who aren't already aware, Sinclair was hit by a ransomware attack last week, and since Sinclair owns WMYV and WXLV, the Greensboro stations are postponing their ATSC 3.0 launch until further notice.

Hopefully third time will be the charm. The Greensboro Market ATSC 3 launch is scheduled for Tuesday, December 7 at 10am with WMYV as the lighthouse and WXLV rebroadcasting WMYV's main channel and WGHP broadcasting the Get TV and Comet TV channels. WXII will also be a participant. WFMY is currently not participating at this time.
