    This is odd. Is there another channel showing up on 9 in your locals?

    One station in my locals is a virtual ch 68 that shows up as ch 12 (which happens to be their RF channel). All the rest show up on their correct virtual numbers.

    My local CBS channel is going independent as of January 1, 2017 and I will lose all new CBS programming I think. I plan to call DISH tomorrow to see if they have any plans to add a CBS channel to my local package. Is there a place to look either on this forum or elsewhere to see what my options might be to get a CBS station? I remember years ago I was able to get an east coast and a west coast feed of all the networks until DISH came through with locals for me. Got to look into the on demand internet based programming too I guess. I have absolutely no clue how that all works right now. Lots of learning and research to do I guess.

    DISH does not offer national distants ... but they do offer their choice of out of market stations to fill in networks.

    If no station in your market picks up the CBS affiliation (including sub channels on other stations) DISH will likely add a channel from a nearby market. But if some other station picks up the rights, DISH will have to cut a deal with the new station for carriage.

    Do you get the Wilmington, NC locals? The CBS affiliation is moving to WWAY 3.2 (the Current CW affiliate), while The CW is moving to WWAY 3.3.

    It was uplinked in test mode back on December 7th, so you should be good to go when it launches. According to the uplink report, it will be carried on channel 9.

    EchoStar VIII (EchoStar 8) had suffered an anomily on January 30th, 2011, which locals on 77 had been shifted to some trasnponders on 61.5/72 and changed its modulation from QPSK/8PSK to Turbo QPSK.

    A lot of DISH customers were concerned about...

    • DishLATINO channels were out of service on E8 (77). Then moved to 72 and DISH Cinema HD channels were gone on the same transponder.
    • The "61.5 Test Channel / What's on DISH?" got removed and replaced with Evansville, IN locals.
    • At 7:16pm ET, national HD cable channels on 72 (e.g. WGN America, HDNet) were temporary moved on some transponders on 61.5/72. The DVR recording were disrupting the signal while recording their favorite shows.

    EchoStar 6 had replaced EchoStar 8 on February 3rd, 2011 to restore its locals and DishLATINO channels, but not enough ConUS beam coverage.
    QuetzSat 1 is now active on February 2013 for its high capacity.

    In late 2017 and this 2018, HD locals are launched to smaller markets for DISH customers.
    • Bend, OR (129)
    • Billings, MT (129)
    • Casper, WY (77)
    • Charlottesville, VA (77)
    • Eureka, CA (119)
    • Glendive, MT (61.5, still with some Rapid City, SD locals)
    • Helena, MT (129)
    • Mankato, MN (61.5/129, still with some Minneapolis/St. Paul locals)
    • North Platte, NE (110)
    • Ottumwa, IA/Kirksville, MO (61.5, HD approval were scrapped, still in SD MPEG4)
    • Rapid City, SD (61.5)
    • Yuma, AZ/El Centro, CA (110)

    That's because the Glendive DMA only has one full power station of their own, which has CBS on the primary and NBC on a subchannel. Their OTA Fox and ABC is via a translator of Rapid City's affiliate.

    Similar to above, the Mankato DMA only has one full power station with CBS on the primary and Fox on a subchannel. The rest of their OTA channels are translators of Minneapolis's ABC, NBC and CW stations

    If XETV (Tijuana, B.C., Mexico) was out on DISH in May 31st, 2017, this means no CW affiliate anymore and no longer served to the US.

    I wish they could add KFMB DT2.

    I'm surprised that these Central and Mountain time zone locations can be served off 61.5.

    Central Time Zone ? - No problem. Mountain Time Zone East of the ROckies should also be no problem. Now - if you're in a no LOS situation on the west side of the Rockies, you should be able to use the Western Arc.

    And if you want to be a stickler - even the west coast can see 61.5 - but the elevation angle makes the angle look like it's pointing at the ground. Also makes no LOS an issue.

    Check them out at www.dishpointer.com

    Edit - this morning, I did some checking on dishpointer for my current location (KC KS) and for Denver CO - no problems on either.

    Next time do some checking before making a blanket statement.

    Any idea how to get more information on this launch? The Locals list (which is awesome, btw) shows the Casper, WY HD locals as available but Dish is still just broadcasting them in SD, as far as I can tell.

    I'd sure love to watch the World Series in HD.... sigh.

    Thanks y'all.

    The HD locals for Casper, WY are only on the eastern arc 77 sat. Are you receiving all three eastern arc sats?

    If you have a Hopper and a DISH 1000.2 EA Hybrid, you'll need a single dish and one LNB to point at 77.

    Yep, I didn't think to mention that. I run a 1000.4 that I switch between an EA triple LNB and a WA triple LNB as needed when we change locations.

    I didn't even know that was an option. I have a tech coming tomorrow to add the dish and switch, since right now I'm attuned to 110/119/129. Thanks NYDutch and GoLong for taking the time to respond. I'm looking forward to having HD networks!

    The Uplink report for 8/7 shows a channel change for most of the Jacksonville, FL locals on 77, but the Locals List no longer lists those channels for 77 at all. Anyone know what's going on?

    The channels on 77 TP 5 do not have a market attached in the database.

    Ah! That explains it then... As a mobile RV'er, the CONUS beamed Jacksonville locals on 77 worked well for southern Georgia and northern Florida without having to change my service address as often. Thanks!
