    I'll be watching the Olympics in beautiful standard definition again this year, unless I finally decide to switch to Brighthouse Cable, U-Verse, or Dish, all of whom offered my locals in HD when the Beijing Olympics were held. Maybe I'll get to watch them in HD by the 2020 games. Not sure, we'll see!

    We will probally get WLBT Jackson, Ms again which makes no sense. We have 3 Louisiana NBC stations closer to Lafayette than Jackson, MS. I have sent a number of email complaining about it and they say that is the DNS market that we are in. When we first got sd local and I sent an email asking why a station out of Lousiana, the reply I got back from DTV was that I could be assured that this was a Louisiana station.

    It could be because of advertising. The Lafayette stations don't want to compete against the NBC affiliate in Alexandria, Lake Charles, or Baton Rouge for ad revenues, so they pull in a station from far, far away so the local businesses won't advertise on it.

    See post above. Confirms that WLBT CH 7 is the NBC affiliate to be broadcast.

    I never watch CW, I just assumed it is on ch. 50 still, and didn't move to 4.

    Interesting, I don't get a 50 now, so I wonder if it'll be 50.1 THIS TV or 50.2 MeTV

    Please see the new, updated thread which is continuing and replacing, the tradition begun here.

    See the new thread here: HERE

    As noted in post #1, the database and maps in this old thread have not been updated since September, 2010.

    Thanks, Alan Gordon, for taking on the challenge of the magnitude of this new thread!
