The Los Angeles and New York distants are on the same transponders as the existing channels. The Chicago and Denver channels are new, all on a transponder typically used for testing.

Mysterious are the ways of the DISH.


I appreciate the work you do posting this information and explaining it. It seems like it doesn't make sense, but then nothing makes sense until it does.

My theory, with Denver and Chicago, is eventually to provide the ability for "distants" by having major network affiliates available in each time zone. More so for situations like a city does not have a nearby ABC, so if one lives in the Central Time Zone, they would get WLS from Chicago. Live in Jackson, Wyoming, no nearby CBS, you may get KCNC from Denver. Sort of the way they now do CW and MyTV in some ares today. Just a theory.

Is MyTV a real network? All I see on KRON is Dr. Phil or infomercials.

Enjoying AT 250 HBO,
