WKBW has not been turned on. You will likely see it if it does become available.
It's odd that it hasn't been turned on yet. Typically I would think it's a contract dispute. Thanks for letting me know I shouldn't be seeing it. I'll just continue watching HD for that channel OTA.
That is both common and likely ... some stations look at their feeds as pots of gold and try to sell them as such. There has to be a limit to what DISH (or DirecTV) will pay for carriage or all stations would start selling their signals like pots of gold.
DirecTV is missing local stations as well for the same reason.
May is almost over and still no Grand Rapids Locals in HD. Whats he deal?
A local retailer has been told that it will be June now.
In 94 minutes it WILL be June.
I'm surprised the market wasn't activated ... but it is there. One step further than a lot of markets.
Having them "there" doesn't do anyone any good if it they aren't activated (as Indianapolians know all too well).
Someone brought out the Pom-Poms too soon on April 24:
Only five markets added in May Not exactly a flood of anticipated HD locals.
The 17 in April probably got your hopes up.
The biggest setback for Indianapolis is that they are not uplinked any more.
If the channels are on the satellite it makes it easier to make them active.
You can always try DirecTV ... except they don't have the HD locals in your market.
But D* does have the GR locals in HD (-1).
I currently receive my Billings MT locals from 148, are you sure that when they are available in HD - they won't come in on the 148 as well? If not, I would assume I could simply re-aim my 148 to 61.5, as I would have no need of the standard def. feeds.
Billings HD locals are not uplinked and likely will not be at 61.5 as that slot is for Eastern Channels. Seems like Fargo is the farthest one west on 61.5.
There's a number of markets in Texas and Oklahoma uplinked on 61.5° that are farther west than Fargo.
Which transponder are the Buffalo HD channels on?
They are on a spotbeam on transponder 13 (E12 at 61.5°).
I too have been wondering about the hd locals for Omaha. What about the Omaha locals anybody know when we will get them I was told by the end of the year. Cant imagine it would take that long. Max.
June 19. Grand Rapids. Good. Finally.
I understand DirecTV has just added the Indianapolis HD CBS channel to its Indy HD local channel lineup.
Ugg. According to this list Wilke Barre PA will get HD before the capital (which isn't even on the schedule). I live on the fringe between harrisburg and baltimore... does anyone know if they would allow me to switch to baltimores locals? I actually live physically closer to baltimore.
June 19th has come and gone...Still no Grand Rapids HD Locals
