    Just an FYI, looks like the WMAW move is going from a discrete feed (or duplicate feed on 121) to a mirror of WMPN Jackson. This station has been available to everyone in Mississippi for some time for $1.50.

    The new "all locals from any given market on one dish" rule is being taken to heart by Dish. All locals on one DISH not one satellite location.

    WMAW is a full time repeater of MPN.

    See ya

    So they will either be moving some markets entirely to wings or moving wings to superdish and some how get enough room for the top 30 markets on a dish 500, cause I doubt they'll change those dishes...

    Any Idea when "this week" is?

    I ran a website on RConnect and it didn't come up yet. However the adress is eligible for a distant NBC, so they won't be without that.

    yeah checked dishnetwork.com today and no mention of ProSieben yet. I hope they can package it with GermanTV and keep the price low. Maybe they can get more channels as well. Danke

    Well, they didn't like the new DT subchannel listings, so they removed them. They were only in engineering status anyway.

    Any idea on when they will start moving the channels to Dish 500? I still can't believe that in the Top 10 markets, you still have to have two dishes for some of the locals.

    September? They are waiting for the launch of E10 which is due out later this year.

    BTW: They have done a fair amount of "moving to Dish500" over the past year, so in essence they have already begun the move. (But don't expect anything major until the last quarter.)

    The deadline for "one dish" is July 2006 IIRC. E* is in no rush and doesn't even have to notify customers about the moves until next January. A successful deployment of E10 will solve a lot of problems.

    The Top 10 markets are the ones with the most channels. The spotbeams which cover those markets are for the most part full. They moved 12 or 13 channels in the LA market and still had plenty left to move.

    I have seen this channel on FTA and the channel is a mirror of the nat'l feed.

    So how come this is actually on a channel in the DMA area (7858 according to TNGTony's chart) instead of the nat'l one (9408)?

    Yeah they have the offer up there now!

    Question: The channels are on SAT 121, I suppose that does mean I need another dish instead of my Dish 500 which is pointed at 110 and 119 right now? Do I have to have them install another dish to get this?

    This channel is not owned by Daystar. This channel is independently owned and not subject to the Daystar deal. So essentially, the channel owners demanded "must carry"

    see ya
