    It appears that Richmond VA is testing as the next city on D* at 119.

    920-WTVR(CBS)-6
    921-WRIC(ABC)-8
    922-WWBT(NBC/WB)-12
    964-WCVE(PBS)-23
    965-WRLH(FOX)-35
    966-WCVW(PBS)-57
    967-WUPV(UPN/PAX)-65

    This brings the total cities on 119 to 11. It looks like this will be the last city till DTV-7s goes up. 119 is now averaging 11.5 channels per TP.

    I have a list, but it is not safe to post such information as Nielson says they own the list. I can tell you that Rockbridge Co. is not in the Richmond Market,and that it is in the Roanoke/Lynchburg Market. Is there another county you have in mind?

    Yeah after Bryan27's nice DMA site got axed by Nielson I had to resort to going to nielson and paying the $30 bucks they charge to get a DMA map. It is a nice map takes about a week to arrive, but it has all the counties in the US and what DMA they are in on it.

    You can check broadcasting & cable yearbook.
    Its usually found in your local library in reference.

    The university libraries in Philly carry the 2003
    edition. It lists also the TV HH in each county,
    atleast the numbers Nielsen got.

    The yearbook has cable penetration
    statistics also (per DMA). It doesnt
    list satellite penetration statistics though.

    WWAC-TV is claiming Philly DMA has
    300,000HH subscribing to satellite
    service:
    http://www.wwac.tv/cablecoverage.html

    Thats considerably good considering
    Comcast's lock on SportsNet.

    That averages to 10%. I emailed their
    general manager, they said the numbers
    are directly from Nielsen. He even
    gave me it broken down, DirecTV and Echostar.
    DirecTV has more subscribers than Echostar
    atleast in Philly, but its pretty standard to
    the national norm.

    Many times local stations purchase
    the Nielsen data, so if you run across
    a nice TV station in your market they
    may tell you whatever information you
    need. WWAC is run by a nice group
    of people, but their programming lineup
    is just Shop At home mostly (station says
    they need to be profitable). I refuse to
    watch the station however.
