I emailed before I read we should call. We have three significantly viewed channels in our area (CBS, NBC, FOX). Here are the results so far.
CBS no response.
FOX says I should contact Directv to get my local fox or switch providers. I believe this was an automated response because of the recent carriage dispute they were having that just ended. I have to try this one again later.
NBC says "We are going to have to do some research on this as. We will be in touch." So there maybe some hope here.
Will keep you posted on how it goes.
I find that a lot of these need education on what it is we speak. Their first thoughts are its not possible or legal usually. Assuring them its legal and that you know people in your area want their station goes along ways.
