    Don't see anything obvious, yet.

    They probably didn't like being compared to the Simpsons station. :)

    Thanks for report John! :)

    Looks like none of Euronews channels (900, 901, 784) changed their current "Not Available" status to "Available" one :(
    Same answer for you as always - WHENEVER DISH Network is ready and / or decides to make them available! :D

    --
    EPG names for couple of porn ones got some "cosmetic changes" (AKA. "got renamed") :rolleyes: .. Oh well...

    actually, the owner (Equity Broadcasting) likes to use old radio callsigns they had for the TV stations :)

    The station was KWFT (the WB in the market) then changed to KBBL
    Then they lost the WB affilaition and their sister station (KPBI) lost the Fox affiliation (KPBI was a Low powered station)

    They both switched to MNTV and are now KPBI (old KBBL & KWFT) and KPBI-CA (the former Fox station)

    Look for answer when they are turned on. Otherwise, E* apparently announced these as coming by 12/31/2006. No one has more info at this time.

    I suspect that because of losing distants E* will do what they can to get the new locals on before Dec 1st. But there are no guarantees in a world where they have to negotiate with stations for permission to carry their signals.

    Generally if you post any question - you should be looking for answer in the same thread (somewhere after your post)... and someone will answer you, if the answer exists that is (just as couple of people did above) :)

    I am anxiously awaiting Bangor Maine to be turned on too. I have distant networks but I am reading that they are being turned off "randomly". If I get hit before the locals are turned on I will be without any network channels at all. I will not be too happy if I miss all the "November sweeps" shows like the fall season finale of Lost. I would hope that paying 90 dollars a month for TV would entitle me to get the network shows without interruption.

    BTW some retailers are reporting that locals in Bangor will be on November 15th. I'll believe it when I see it.

    Lots of good "stuffs" out there. I considered it for a couple of hours again today, but I keep finding things that I want on C band instead of KU and really don't want to have to install a C band dish. But $250-$300 for a complete 30" setup with receiver isn't bad.

    Same here, but sticking an 8 foot dish outside might not please the wife to much. :nono:
