Does anyone know when is dish network going to add channel 25 to their locals?since directv has it I hope dish will get it soon.
I don't think any of the channels have intentionally tried to tie things up. Running a fiber or microwave link doesn't happen over night. If your a station with your studio far from the POP chances are there isn't a fiber line across the street you can connect to and you will have to run a fiber line all the way to the POP. If the station decides microwave, first they have to find an open channel or channels (it may take more then one microwave hop to the POP), apply to build a microwave link, wait a year or two for a CP, and then build the link.Why should channel reservation be made for a station that just wants to tie things up but never be able to get the quality signal over?
EEECH! That's a lot of chanels for one transponder!With 1 spotbeam with 1 TP planned to serve Cleveland, Pittsburgh, and Cincinnati there simply isn't any room to carry it.
