Milford is in Pike country which is part of the NYC DMA.
I live in Tobyhanna, unfortunately I don't know of any cable provider that has WABC in our county. Maybe one of the towns that border Pike country have it, but the main Blue Ridge system that serves Monroe county doesn't have it. The fact that they're not on the list while the others are on the list could have something to do with it. It's interesting though that out of all the NYC big 4 stations, WABC isn't on any of the lists, even in the other direction where WCBS, WNBC and WNYW are on the list for several counties in the Hartford market. DirecTV does provide them to portions of that market, but not here. Oddly enough after the digital transition, WABC is the only NYC station we get over the air on a semi-regular basis and would probably get on a regular basis if I didn't have to keep the antenna pointed in the opposite direction to get our local CBS and NBC station.
As for WPIX and WWOR they likely had no motive to get on the list when it was drawn up in the 70s since they were still independent stations with no competing affiliate the cable systems had to protect. They also had carriage on many out of market cable systems via their old superstation C-Band feeds that up until the late 80s were simulcasts of the over the air station.
I just got a call back from Kurt Hanson (Chief Engineer) who seemed not that interested. I explained the position and the need and that WNBC and WCBS were already on the list and he said he would speak with the legal team and see if they want to do it. I will wait a week and call him back to see what they say.
WNYW is also on the list for our county, the cable system just doesn't carry it anymore because WOLF forced them off. Not sure if that would apply to satellite though since the significantly viewed lists also protects the out of market station from being blacked out.
