Great news! We have been waiting on WWME-TV 23 for a long time now! It is as good or better than TV Land for classic shows. Directv has had it a couple years now I think!

Must have some good local sports, also. We see the backhauls for those in season.

Totally agree there, that's one of the main reason's why I would never switch to E*.
Thankfully, our area falls in the spot beams for the Chicago locals on BOTH systems. :D :D

Not usually - those usually are on it's sister station, the "U" (WCIU-26) - THAT'S why I love it. :D ;)

But, I do know some people that DO like those, as they have some Cubs spillover games on the U.

Actually now that you mentioned it, could it have been high school or college games - I do now seem to remember seeing those on a time or two on METV. But as I said, it seems to be few & far between...

The extra vacant Arizona spotbeam gets turned up for KTVK . They have a good portion of the Diamonbacks schedule, I think all the games are in HD for both KTVK & Fox Arizona.
We'll never know if the space was reserved for MLB.

The extra bandwidth, should be used as an advantage, adding the Tuscon affiliate KWBA. Jumping early would add Income, bragging rights & a promotional tool for the this Falls eleven RSNs in HD be added to Dishs HD lineup.

John or James,
E10's tp's have to be all HD or all SD, correct? Can 't recall the technical details.

With the current lineup of receivers, HD Tps will likely only have HD channels and SD Tps will only have SD channels. If the receivers all had the capability of receiving the 8PSK and Turbo Coded FEC QPSK as well as the QPSK the channels could be intermixed. That will not be the case for some time.

METV is one of the Chicago Local channels. It is in the Chicago locals package, not Family Pack.
