How do I know which local stations I will get when I move? We are in Tuscaloosa, AL right now but moving to Columbus GA in a few days. DISH told me over the phone when I asked a few weeks ago that they did not offer local channels there. However, I saw an article online that says they are now offering them as of June 3rd. Also, the Zap2it listings say they offer them.
Is there a way to know for sure?

Also, they don't offer the CW it seems. Is there a way to get that? I have most of the DISH lineup but don't get those extra channels in LA or superstations, whatever. Would I need to get those to get the CW?

Thanks!


Suzanne

According to the thread Uplink Activity for the Week of 5-31-10 HD stations WTVM (ABC), WRBL (CBS), WLTZ (NBC), WXTX (Fox), and WJSP (PBS) indeed became available that week.

It appears you may need to look at the Superstations for The CW.

So what did they tell you?
