    WB Affiliates on Ku-Band Satellite (1998)

    Though only a handful of WB Affiliates (outside of the Tribune stations) had news outlets in '98, affiliates like KWBP Portland, OR and KUWB Salt Lake City would often provide weather forecasts and updates.

    the 4DTV receivers that were commonly used were DSR-905 (could only receive DCII programming), DSR-920 (US model) and DSR-921 (Canadian receiver) which also receives StarChoice programming (as StarChoice had an identical IPG to that of 4DTV).

    Well speaking of the OTA TV Antenna's, either you had to go by an Antenna farm or go by your satellite retailer (4DTV (Videocipher/Digicipher II), Primestar, DirecTV/USSB (DSS), Dish Network, ExpressVu (Dish Network Canada), StarChoice (Canada) etc...).

    Well how much would the C-Band dishes cost in Canada? (which is mainly ExpressVu and StarChoice territory), standard installation would cost $3000 in the US, with a do-it-yourself installation kit ranging from $800-$1500.

    Apartment and Tiny House dwellers would put the BUD Outside with the coaxial cable attached to the receiver (Videocipher II/4DTV) and there aren't that many BUD-outfitted RVs, most of them had Winegard or DirecTV dishes up top.

    WB Affiliates on Ku-Band Satellite (1998)

    I am not autistic as I used to be, and information like this (WB Affiliates/newsfeeds on Ku) can be tough to find. Going to the library is another option for me.

    ABC Affiliates on Ku-Band (1998)

    I also forget to mention that ABC also had newsfeeds on GSTAR 2 before the sat de-orbited in August 1997.

    WB Affiliates on Ku-Band Satellite (1998)

    Well although the FTA fans don't want me contacting marketing execs it's worth the risk, sometimes I have to (they may have the answer or the transponder information), and as mentioned in the ABC thread, my parents only had cable when I was born (June 1998) so I could only get whatever affiliate...
