Sinclair Broadcasting guide delays

TDS has received notification from Sinclair Broadcasting that, due to a technical issue, they are unable to provide data for the on-screen guide for many of their stations. TDS customers in the Portland Designated Market Area — which includes those in Madras, Crooked River Ranch, Crook County, and Jefferson County — may experience delays in guide updates for some of Sinclair’s 100+ broadcast stations, their mini-networks, and their sports channels.

Several Sinclair-owned properties report having issues sending any guide information as of today, Oct. 22. Others are only able to send 24-28 hour’s worth of information.

TDS is working closely with the broadcaster to resolve this issue as quickly as possible.
