    Explain a must carry

    i was referring to the fact you said that "Satellites do carry subchannels only if they are a full power and on the. 1" my point was that the reason directv carries it is because again its a .1, full power, and they reached an agreement

    Explain a must carry

    that has already been established previously. i dont know why you need to repeat yourself not all subchannels are carried on cable cable will carry them but the owner of the station that has it on their subchannel has to reach an agreement. that is why you will see some subchannels not on...

    Explain a must carry

    the .1 is considered the primary channel like in my market we have 2 stations KXGN 5.1 is the primary channel and carries CBS KXGN 5.2 is the subchannel and carries NBC subchannels are considered -2 and on. so a station that is just a .1 would be one with no subchannels.

    Explain a must carry

    A .1 is not a subchannel. and since you claim that is full power then of course it would get must carry as long as they reach an agreement

    Explain a must carry

    but the previous sentence i clearly stated a must carry means if it asks for carriage on a cable or satellite company the provider has to carry it as along as they reach an agreement on compensation guess you neglected to read that part before making your incorrect response

Before 2009 NBC was an hour at night on KXGN. Yes KXGN did carry both CBS and NBC up to 2009. We also had a low...

    Who here has a DVR for their antennas? What DVR do you have?

    Is it possible to pay extra for distant networks and stay where you are without "moving"?

    but with a RV don't you just fill out the form and submit it? That's different than if you don't have locals on Directv and you have to go through their qualification page. Here is what it shows for my area. We automatically qualify for FOX, ABC, CW, and PBS. You can try and get a waiver for NBC...

    Is it possible to pay extra for distant networks and stay where you are without "moving"?

    and in some cases you have to get a waiver My market isn't on Directv yet I had to get a waiver to get CBS from LA. I was grandfathered for NBC before KXGN added NBC as a subchannel. There are no other stations in the market.
