Thanks mostly in part to wwmt being a pain in the *** to deal with, D* has indefinitely postponed adding west michigan locals in HD. Those of you familiar with wwmt know that both comcast and charter had been unable to strike a deal with wwmt (cbs affialate owned by freedom broadcasting) for the last 2 plus YEARS. Comcast STILL doesn't carry them and charter has very recently struck a deal with them. The powers that be at wwmt are evil devil spawn!

Close, but no cigar........

Can one holdout local stop them all from going up? Aren't there other markets with 2 or 3 of the 4 operational?

Not having CBS is a definite buzz-killer.

chief engineer for woodtv8 (nbc) says "not enough agreements in place" is the reason for the halt to the plans. Our market was supposed to go up by the end of august and is now not ON DIRECTS WEBSITE ANYMORE!
