The way WPTZ handled this change over, was from the “Bottom of The Barrel” You don’t mix Milk with Vinegar The trouble today with corporations, Is they don’t satisfy the wants of the Comsumer, just the wants of Management, and a lot of businesses, have gone by the way. The Consumer is the buyer, not managment. It reminded me, when the Dodgers sneaked out of Brooklyn. I am just going to Boycott Channel 5, till they get their act together.

The CW change from Burlington’s 44.2 to 5.2 was not well planed from what I have seen. Web sites were not updated, channels over air program info still shows wrong info 4 days after change over. This is the second time in a year that 5.2 has showed its poor planning. Last time they changed the programming schedule from This-TV to Me-TV without updating their web sites, which still have not all been updated. Over air program guide for 5.2 listed 5.1 shows until the past month now all shows are listed DTV, which is utterly useless. WPTZ needs some work! Even the time change was not taken into account for their over air program guide.
