Columbus was listed as one of the possible additions well before the merger announcement. So there is a good possibility that it will be added regardless of the merger. From what I understand, WBNS was the only hold up it it being added last year. WBNS wanted Dish to carry ONN. With Dish's experience in Nashville, they decided to pass imediately and add a more "willing" city.

See ya
For the life of me I will never understand why people will pay hundreds and thousands of dollars on a TV that provides the clearest, sharpest, most realistic picture possible and then, voluntarily, distort the image!

blah, sounds like the deal they had here in Columbus wth TW when ONN came out, they refused to add ONN to analog and WBNS threw a fit, TW was even going to let BNS disapear for a bit if BNS didnt cave in.. finally they made a compremise on Digital.... I dont see where ONN would play a roll, they dont demand it from D* .. but then again... I dont mind, I dont watch WBNS :) I primarly want my Channel 4 *NBC4* and Fox28*... They dont come in well here in my apt on ant.
