    I was wondering...where is this weeks Dish uplink report? (the one for 6-16-09)

    I usually read through those uplink reports in order to see if any new channels of interest to me are coming soon, such as Qubo.

    If you want Qubo and have an ION station broadcasting in your area try getting it OTA. I get it on my 622 ever since the end of analog TV on 6-12 (my ION station "flash-cut" from analog to digital).

    I would, but there is no ION OTA afiliate in South Dakota.

    Yeah, he is talking about last Wednesday. There were uplinks then, I guess that JohnH is on vacation or something, he never did post them on here last week.

    There were issues. I had to go to another site to get the uplink report. (Even they were a little late to the punch.)

    A bunch of locals (Richmond, Tampa, OK City, WPB, Birmingham, Tulsa) were added to 129 in HD. Bend and North Platte SD was added but not made available. Univision was added in Palm Springs, internationals moved off 148, and WDBJ HD was made available.)

    I wouldn't hold your breath regarding qubo showing up on DISH in the foreseeable future. Neither DISH nor DIRECTV carry any qubo feeds.

    I'm guessing that everyone is hesitant to sign a contract with a network that is currently involved in Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings.

    Dish did an HD Tuesday on Twitter. They've announced KVAL, KIDK, KBCI, KIMA, and WKBW HD for tomorrow. Something smells Fisher-y...and don't take it for Granite.

    Say WHAT!?!?!? :eek2:

    If that's true, this will be me soon: :icon_da:

    I've been following the uplink reports every day for a year and a half waiting for news on that station! Figures that something would happen this week. :bang

    JohnH, I hope everythings all right with you. Where are you, we miss you! :bowdown:

    Yes, it's true, ShapeShifter.

    twitter.com/dishnetwork

    That could be good news for Fort Wayne subs too, because WPTA-WISE also falls under Granite (and Malara, their shell company). That is an "illegal" ABC-NBC duopoly, and I wasn't sure if it were going to be available from day one for Fort Wayne subs.

    The FCC doesnt think its illegal. Hell they do the same thing in Duluth, MN
    KBJR NBC owned by Granite
    KDLH CBS "owned" by Malara but run by Granite

    WDIO (ABC) went to the FCC about it and technically they say it isnt illegal......lame, yes but not illegal

    also in Chisholm, MN KBJR flash cut their NBC satellite station to 5 (FIVE!!) subchannels
    NBC
    CBS
    My
    CW
    weather
    (CW is on CBS subchannel and My is on NBC subchannel in Duluth)

    Well then, that's great! I'll have to watch for when it actually goes live (nothing yet.) How accurate is that Twitter? Is it straight from the powers that be at E*, or is it just someone's gossip channel?

    That station was the last stumbling block for me to go with a 1000.4 single dish solution. I don't particularly care about the station, but my wife insists on it. And with it currently only being available in SD on 110, and the rest of the big 4 locals on 61.5, I couldn't get them all on one dish.

    Now, I just hope that when it does goes live, it'll be on 61.5.

    Now, I wonder... when the EA was first announced, it was stated that Buffalo would eventually go to EA. I wonder if this station was a stumbling block, and if this news means things are one step closer?

    And today's uplink has been done.

    I'm posting the Uplink Report Highlights which will tell you what happened.

    And Dish's Twitter has been established as reliable. Their HD Tuesdays are my favorite part; look at the bonanza it gives!

    Well...they made a new contract with ION and they added the ION West feed. It's still possible that Qubo could make it in.

    Yes it has, and the channel is live! :stickman: Yahoo!

    Thanks for the updates!

    Yeah, I was wondering the same thing yesterday. His last login was two weeks ago! His last posts say nothing about a vacation or other hiatus. I hope all is well.

    No, he is not on vacation.

    He contacted us about 4 weeks ago stating he was ill.

    We are trying to pass all of your good wishes on to him, but we have no idea if he is able to read them.

    Out of respect for John, please do not open anymore threads titled "Uplink Report" unless it is a true report. This is John's legacy and I do not wish to disrespect that.

    I wish John health and comfort.

    Thanks,
    Jason
