Former ion stations in Houston have moved to a low power frequency. In the former ch 49 is now the main ion channel and about ten subchannels. My research reveals they are encrypted premium movie channels and also Spanish Tv. A special reciever is required to pick up the premium channels. The box is from airbox tv. I would not mind Showtime for a small fee. No way I want another box though, the Premiere is doing just fine. I do wonder if the new company box will have a guide since there is a payment plan...and I wonder if Tivo would ever be able to have a compatible device that picks up the encrypted channels?
