    I recently checked on obtaining a waiver and to my surprise Dallas/Ft.Worth was an option but only ABC and NBC. Previously only NY LA CHI ATL & DEN were available. Does any one know what is up with this new offering?

    I don't think it is a new offering, DFW used to be a conus signal but was changed to a spotbeam a couple years ago. Looks like a case of Garbage in was Garbage out.

    Dallas/Ft. Worth showed up for me as a Distant Network Package choice. But for Distant Network A La Carte selections, only CBS and NBC are available.

    No.

    You WILL NOT be getting Atlanta any more so don't keep calling and asking. Atlanta locals are supposed to move to a spotbeam. Therefore, they are NOT available as a distant option nationally.

    No error on your part, you said they are supposed to move to a spot beam, JohnH jumped all in your you know what for no reason at all...makes perfect sense that stations moved/moving to a spotbeam could not be offered as distants anymore....
