Despite the U.S. Supreme Court today rejecting appeals from the direct broadcast satellite industry (DirecTV and soon-to-be parent Echostar) to reverse the must-carry rules requiring carriage of local TV stations, Paxson Communications Corporation sealed with DirecTV for the additional carriage of 37 TV stations affiliated with Pax TV.

Jeff Sagansky, president and CEO of Paxson Communications, said in a statement that the carriage of family-friendly Pax TV stations will now allow local advertisers "to reach the high-end DirecTV customer" associated with DBS provider. In some key markets, such as KPXN-TV in Los Angeles, DirecTV is already providing carriage to local subscribers.

The following is a partial list of 37 Pax TV stations that are launching on DirecTV's lineup (stations with asterisks are still have pending issues but expect to launch in several weeks): WPXN-TV in New York; WCPX-TV in Chicago; WPPX-TV in Philadelphia; KKPX-TV in San Francisco; WBPX-TV in Boston; KPXD-TV in Dallas; WPXW-TV * in Washington; WPXA-TV in Atlanta; WPXD-TV in Detroit; KPXB-TV in Houston; KWPX-TV in Seattle; KPXM-TV in Minneapolis; WXPX-TV * in Tampa; WPXM-TV in Miami; KPPX-TV in Phoenix; WVPX-TV in Cleveland; KPXC-TV in Denver; and KSPX-TV in Sacramento.

The Pax station is up and running here in SLC on D* (channel 16). What a waste! Now I have two Pax stations (national and local) that have 12 hours of "Paid Programming" every day.

With AT50 + locals, I don't get a local Pax or the Pax national feed. I wish E* would add Pax national feed to all local lineups.

At least you get a chance to watch Murder She Wrote twice. The sight of her gives me the willies.
