    That speaks volumes. Suppose if I logged on wgnamerica and posted Drop it and add H2 they would ban me?

    I'm in LA and the local Tribune channel is KTLA (CW). Once that channel is dark, I am curious if D* will be able to open up the DNS channel for CW which I think is in San Diego on channel 395. I am hoping so at least I can still see CW programming.

    That would be illegal. I also do not believe they have ever done that before either.

    Who knows. Just went back onto the local FOX site and someone else posted something along the line of it still being up (I posted mine about 12:30am EST, this post was closer to 1:30). Maybe whoever monitors the site took a nap. :lol:

    Fox40 went down at 2 after. As far as I am aware, this is the first time a major local channel has been yanked off DirecTV or Dish in the Sacramento DMA.
