According to Don Freeman (Chief Operating Officer for WNEO & WEAO), “PBS 45 & 49” will begin carrying “PBS HD” around July 1st. This is according to his post in the Cleveland HDTV page on avsforum.com. He says that they will carry HD on 45-1 & 49-1, while carrying upconverted SD WNEO/WEAO on 45-2 & 49-2. Their current encoder only allows the stations to carry one HD & one SD stream, which means that “Create!” and “The Ohio Channel” will be taken off at the end of June. They will be adding additional channels with station upgrades that could be finished by the end of 2007.
