Erie TV viewers (including HDTV Advocate & friend Jack Tirak over at the “Erie Media” blog) who have been waiting to watch something over the air in HD besides WQLN now have their wish. Over the weekend, WFXP (Fox 66) began to carry HD programming from Fox. The first program was the NFL matchup between the Buffalo Bills and New York Giants. Later in the evening, they also carried the movie “Spider Man 2” in High Definition. The station will carry all programs from the Fox Network in HD and just in time for the BCS Championship, NFC Playoffs, Super Bowl 42 and the 50th running of the Daytona 500. While the digital signal for Fox 66 is currently low, it can be picked up in some outlying areas and the station will go full power in 2008.
