Just to clarify:

I've subscribed to the Superstation package since the first day I got DISH (it was, in fact, the reason I chose DISH) and have always received KWGN in with the others.

I have never subscribed to locals and so have never received KWGN or any of the other superstations in HD.

Since I get KWGN just fine OTA, I wouldn't care if it disappeared on DISH, but I suspect Tribune allows the SD feed as part of their superstation agreement.

There is no "superrstation agreement' no agreement is necessary to carrya superstation.
I never cared for all the signatures that insult posters with other points of view.

There is an agreement needed with the local, though not that I am aware of the Superstation. Before Dish can offer it the local must allow it, and they do not always do so.

Kucharsk's post referenced an agreement with Tribune presumably as the superstation. I simply pointed out that ni such agreeement exists.

And I agreed with that in my post, and clarified where there is an agreement. :)
