    I agree. The injunction has not been lifted yet, so Dish cannot provide distants. Of course, if Dish did provide a distant ABC station to Salinas-Monterey, even in violation of the injunction, there would still be no aggrieved party, since there is no ABC station in that area. But I hope Dish reviews the FCC list and make sure that they only turn on significantly viewed stations, until the injunction is lifted. And even when the injunction is lifted, providing KEYT to Salinas-Monterey is a poor marketing decision.

    Does this mean that Bluefield/Oak Hill, WVA is only available at 77°? My daughter lives in this market and I believe she is currently pointed at the Western Arc, she doesn't seem to currently be receiving anything on 77°. Does this mean that she will need to have someone come out and change her setup? Can you tell me what she needs to start getting her locals on 6/3/10? She called Dish on Friday and they told her she wouldn't have to do anything that she should just start receiving them. Please advise.

    Thanks

    One other question about Bluefield/Oak Hill, WVA. WVNS carries both CBS & FOX. Could that be why there are two listings for WVNS for Bluefield/Oak Hill? One for CBS & one for FOX?

    WTVH is SV in Oneida County, but not Herkimer or Otsego. For CBS, both WBNG and WRGB are SV in Otsego. Only WRGB is SV in Herkimer County. Any idea how that will be resolved?

    Today nothing is available, but yes - they are uplinked only to 77 and when activated on Thursday morning will only be available from 77. Your daughter will need to change her setup (including upgrade to ViP equipment if she does not already have HD).

    Correct. "WVNSD" is the Fox feed. I corrected my error in the listing above.

    Under the law DISH can only provide the SV stations where they are on the SV list ... so for now those SVs simply will not be available in the entire market.

    Once DISH goes to court and is able to provide distants again I expect the stations will be made available market wide (if possible). If there are other network stations that could be used for SVs in the missing counties I'd look for them to be added.

    It may not have anything to do with SV. If no affiliate of the network delivers a grade "B" signal to any part of the market, they should be able to offer an out-of-market affiliate of that network to the entire market.

    A similar situation exists in the Ottumwa-Kirksville market...KSHB (NBC) is not SV in the Iowa portion of the market. I'm not sure about Missouri. However, in that market, the Des Moines NBC station does have a translator in Ottumwa, so that may blow the theory in my previous paragraph out the window.

    Also, on Glendive, KXGN launched a full-fledged NBC subchannel last year, but I believe they still do show an hour of "best of" NBC programming at 9 p.m. MT on the primary channel.

    The "grade B" analysis has now been eliminated from federal law in the version of STELA signed by the President last week. Dish is currently under an injunction that prohibits Dish from providing distants. The only distants available on Dish's system are provided by AAD. The injunction may be lifted at some point, but it currently remains. Unless the out-of-market affiliate is "significantly viewed," Dish cannot provide it.

    Dish can now per STELA offer locals to markets that didnt have the full batch. They can import a neighboring local and will do that on 6/3

    Only if the neighboring local is "significantly viewed" can Dish import it into a neighboring market. The FCC maintains a list of "significantly viewed" stations. Sometimes a neighboring station will not qualify as "significantly viewed." In that case, it would be a distant, and Dish remains barred by injunction from importing that station.

    I thought they would be allowed to carry DNS under the same provision that will allow them to carry SV?

    There are some conditions that they must meet. After they have met the conditions, then they must petition the court that imposed the injunction to lift the injunction. Once the injunction is lifted, then Dish can resume carrying distants. However, their carriage may still be limited by the terms of their contract with AAD. That is the big unknown.

    We have had some discussion about Monterery and KEYT not being a SV station for that market. These are stations that I found on a quick scan of the list of uplinked but not available stations.

    I'm still wondering if after offering locals in SD only, will they be able to also offer HD locals from an adjoining Significantly Viewed DMA. In my case, I'm in the Binghamton, NY DMA which will be SD only. Syracuse is SV for us and they are offered in HD.

    I believe providers are required to offer the in market stations in HD before offering any of the SVs in HD.
