    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.
