    Thanks that really helps. I would've thought that some big markets locals would stay at 110 and 119 because of what's involved to replace the wing dishes with a Dish1000 in these markets. But nothing is official yet.

    James,

    Thanks to a few e-mails we sorted out a mistake I made and this impacts your great list.

    South Bend (7090+) is NOT on 129
    Sioux City (7190+) IS on 129.

    Sorry for the mistake.

    See ya
    Tony

    No problem - thanks for the correction.

    Guess I get to keep my SD105 active a while longer - SB locals are my locals.

    Why would those counties get WRTV and WTHR (an ABC and an additional NBC affiliate) but not WTTV or WISH??? These rules make no sense at all.

    WTTV is a Tribune station now. I don't think it was before with the regular local negotiations the first time around with Dish.

    I am in Vermillion county and I still do not have them as of 2 minutes ago.

    When I get home from work I will call E and see what is up with those channels

    Well, there's Denver.

    I'm really surprised to see those large markets (San Francisco, Houston) there. Wonder what they are saving the new 110 spotbeam for?

    Wonder if I'll keep the wing just to get CBSHD (like having different time zones available).

    So has anyone in these local markets tried swinging a dish over there yet?

    It looks like EX is getting more and more delayed, they probably want to get the markets off the wings, on to 129 to avoid any possible missing of the deadline for single dish locals. Plus it is a lot cheaper for them to just pay for one dish installs instead of 2 in these markets.

    When EX goes up they can move the markets to spots and put other channels on 129 and have a lot Dish 1000s up ready to receive them.

    "Plus it is a lot cheaper for them to just pay for one dish installs instead of 2 in these markets."

    That's correct but what about existing customers in these markets. They will have to replace a lot of setups with a Dish1000 or swing the wing dish to point at 129. Unless they are planning to mirror the channels on 129 and the wing dishes but that doesn't make any sense since they need the bandwith.

    I'm with David on this one... just waiting for CBSHD to get added to 129 before I swing my dish.

    8413 KMPX ADDED TO Tp 16 ConUS beam on EchoStar 5 at 129w
    8414 KDTN ADDED TO Tp 16 ConUS beam on EchoStar 5 at 129w

    Arrrrgh - no more pirates there ....

    Great place for a news channel ...
    IMG provides uplink services ... not much of a hint what KIN could be ...

    206 would be a better place for Fox News International when launched ...

    Possible. It is not in the EIT, yet. I'll plug in the player occasionally to see if any changes.

    A bit off topic, but anyone notice how many channels that Concert at 8 PM EDT is on? Must be more than 20.

    Not really .. IMG doesn't have it's own channel - other than producing for others the only service that they provide related to owning a channel is uplink.
