It appears that Dish doesn't intend to carry WJTV CW 12.2 anytime soon.
From the General Manager:
Thanks for your note.
It is my understanding that, at this time, DISH will not be adding our local CW to their lineup.
They may be able to give you greater clarification on their intentions in the short or long term to include Mississippi's CW in the future.
Depending on your location and antenna, our CW is available over the air on Digital channel 12.2.
Thank you for your interest.
Of course, I sent the following to firstname.lastname@example.org. I don't know if it will help, but the ceo team has been responsive in the past.
The CW affiliation in the Jackson, MS market moved from WRBJ Channel 34 to WJTV subchannel 12.2. The new CW affiliate went on the air around 9/30/2013 and is broadcasting in 720P HD. After contacting the station’s general manager, he says there are no plans for Dish Network to carry the CW.
Are there any plans to add WJTV 12.2 CW to the Jackson, MS locals package? It seems like it should be added, since our market has had a CW affiliate from its inception in 2006 until this past July, when WRBJ 34 switched over to Trinity. Although it is my understanding that Dish Network has an agreement with Trinity where local Trinity affiliates do not have to be carried in the locals package if the National feed is carried, WRBJ 34 is still being broadcast in our locals package in 720P. Given this, I thought you were holding the slot to eventually move WJTV 12.2 to it.
I was hoping that the recent deal with Media General would have included a provision to add WJTV 12.2 to the locals package. I noticed that Dish does include a CW on subchannel 2 in the Greenville/New Bern/Washington, NC DMA. Like WJTV, WNCT is owned by Media General and also carries CBS in 1080i on subchannel 1 as Dish channel 009-00 and CW in 720P on subchannel 2 as Dish channel 010-00.
PLEASE consider restoring CW BACK to our locals package in Jackson, MS.
