    I can get ME in Los Angeles on DTV because Weigel Broadcasting bought former Azteca America affiliate KAZA channel 54 with A.A. now programming on KJLA channel 57. ME used to be on KVME channel 20,now they air Heroes & Icons.

    Seems like Directv really take care of Los Angeles (thou it could be better). In San Diego, we don't it MeTV or MyTV at all and we don't get CW in HD. I guess LA is hogging all the spotbeams for the LA/SD area.

    It's because San Diego's CW affiliate is now on a subchannel. The carry one in HD/carry all in HD rule only applies to primary channels of full powered stations. Maybe next time Tegna's contract is up for renewal, HD carriage will be part of it like it was for some other markets.

    As for your MyNetworkTV affiliate, it's on a Mexican license, so they can't claim must carry status. And since MyNetworkTV isn't even considered a network anymore, they don't even bother carrying MyNet stations that are on subchannels unless it's part of a retrans deal with their primary station.

    LA's MeTV affiliate is carried because it's a primary station that declared must carry status, it's not special treatment.

    Now if KUSI would have affiliated with a network instead of remaining independent, it would be another story for your market. Especially since your market is already limited on how many full powered stations it can have because it has to share the available frequencies with Tijuana.

    What are you suspecting that is coming? I'm hoping for the remaining Encore channels in HD.

    Most of their morning block is, but they haven't been a full blown religious channel in years.

    They could have tons of bandwidth if they got rid of a bunch of SD duplicates that are literally just wasting space except for on Grandma Moses' TV.

    The SD duplicates for locals are going away next year - but so are the spot beams carrying those locals.
