I made a comment on the website saying that and 5 minutes later the post was deleted and my user name was banned. :nono:


That speaks volumes. Suppose if I logged on wgnamerica and posted Drop it and add H2 they would ban me?

My local WGN station is still on as of 1:14 a.m. CDT.

FAITH: I find the lack of it disturbing.

Opinions are my own but should be those of all Americans, who would be much better off intellectually, psychologically, and emotionally if that were the case.

The local FOX website (WXMI) has a message on the homepage saying as of 11:59PM that they are no longer on DirecTV. Well, as of this post it is still on. :rolleyes:


I noticed WGN America has a scroll mentioning they're gone...but my WPIX-channel 11 local tribune have yet to see any scroll ...

I'm in LA and the local Tribune channel is KTLA (CW). Once that channel is dark, I am curious if D* will be able to open up the DNS channel for CW which I think is in San Diego on channel 395. I am hoping so at least I can still see CW programming.

That would be illegal. I also do not believe they have ever done that before either.

Who knows. Just went back onto the local FOX site and someone else posted something along the line of it still being up (I posted mine about 12:30am EST, this post was closer to 1:30). Maybe whoever monitors the site took a nap. :lol:

Fox40 went down at 2 after. As far as I am aware, this is the first time a major local channel has been yanked off DirecTV or Dish in the Sacramento DMA.
