Indianapolis channels to return soon on Dish Network
 
After three weeks without Indianapolis-based network affiliate TV programming, Lafayette-area Dish Network subscribers may soon be able to tune to Indianapolis stations instead of South Bend stations, according to a variety of sources.
 
The Dish Network switched its “local” channel lineup June 5, dropping the Indianapolis affiliates of NBC, ABC and Fox and replacing them with South Bend affiliates.
 
The change came as a shock to many subscribers, who said they were not warned before it occurred or given an explanation.
 
But several customers in recent days have told the Journal & Courier that the satellite TV provider informed them the Indianapolis stations will be restored this week, possibly by Thursday.

Just makes you wonder what this was all about? Still say Lafayette would be better off with at least abc out of South Bend so they can watch the Indy 500. :grin:

The stations are "significantly viewed" in the Lafayette market. Perhaps one or more wanted compensation for carriage and DISH decided to bring in distants that they do not need to negotiate a price to carry.

I suppose having all their stations but one be of the "SV" variety does give Dish some flexibility there. If I remember correctly when they were in dispute with Indy channel 13 (NBC) they just imported in the Fort Wayne NBC affiliate into the Lafayette DMA. If only they could've done the same with the actual Indy DMA it would've saved me from having to listen to some unhappy subscribers!

I don't understand how Lafayette is its own DMA with two counties and one CBS station.  The neighboring counties in Indiana are considered part of the Indianapolis market and one to the north chooses Champaign, IL I think over Lafayette.  I don't see how one station DMAs still even exist.
