yeah, well I used to get it 3 hours early before distants were turned off. and SFO is a OO market too.Doug E said:And for some reason, the CBS affilliate in Sac broadcasts prime time an hour earlier than SF. That is, prime time programming begins at 7pm instead of 8pm
Well, I checked into this. Looks like KQCA is now a MyTV affiliate, and the two hours of MyTV programming a night are in HD, as is a show called Eye For an Eye, which comes on at 1:00 AM, and looks to be a mix of the People's Court and Fear Factor. Television is truly bizzare these days.Lyle_JP said:However, Sacramento does have an independent (formerly WB) station in HD on Dish. Although I have no idea just how much HD this independent station is broadcasting.

Why does it matter?kstuart said:Thanks, Jo !
Okay, that tells us:
SF has O&O from ABC, NBC, CBS and CW (KTVU-Fox is not O&O)
Sacramento only has O&O from CBS and CW
NY and LA have O&O from ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox and My.
Atlanta (as provided by NPS) has O&O from Fox (evidently the best PQ on NPS and roughly equal PQ to Dish's former NY & LA Fox feeds). Atlanta has O&O from CW (not on NPS).
Viewers hoped that once CBS took over the operations of KOVR they would air primetime from 8-11pm once again but that didn't happen. They did however switch weekend primetime to 7pm on Saturdays and 6pm on Sundays. They had been airing the weekend primetime at the normal Pacific time zone start time and local news at 11pm.CABill said:KOVR was doing the "early prime time" before CBS/Viacom bought it. After it became CBS Owned and Operated, they decided to continue that schedule. While I had KCBS from LA, it was handy to avoid conflicts when multiple recordings were needed at the same time.
