due to the possible dispute again these are markets (Lafayette, IN and Zanesville, OH) where Dish CAN import a different affiliate if need be (both are one station markets)

Yes a 9/10 launch, maybe I misunderstood you. I thought they would uplink, test for a week or so then make it available.

Iceberg too technical for me...Humor me my friend......laughing.

sorry...maybe I'll try to explain it better

Dish and Directv can get the locals from the market a couple different ways
-grab then over the air (like we do)....then send them via fibre to the uplink facilities that Dish has
-have a direct fibre line from the station (this is usually done in the smaller markets)...basically the same way as the 1st option but if the transmitter goes down you would still get a pic

If Dish uses option 1 (OTA) until the station is actually lit up (even as a test run) Dish has nothing to uplink. Cant pick up what isnt there ;)
If they use a fibre line (which they might) Dish has to wait until they (WECP) gives them the OK.

If they are still looking at a Sept 10 launch there is still time. Uplink it next week and take 4-5 days to make sure signal is good and boom turn it on.

Sidenote....as example in Parkersburg WV Directv has uplinked the new CBS there (WIYE)....they are doing test runs right now and go live on the 3rd.

Ok, I think I now understand. I appreciate you taking the time to explain. All I know I'm like a little kid on Christmas, it's like a countdown in my house. Is that weird ?
Laughing.

Seriously, thanks for in the info.

So of indy local wthr NBC goes off the air either tonight or friday night due to a dispute....they can just turn on another local nbc???
no. Dish can only import a station if there is no network affiliate there.
The only spot they can (in this case) is Lafayette. Since Lafayette doesnt have a NBC in their market (they are a CBS only market) Dish has the right to pipe in a different NBC in that market only.

Same with Zanesville OH. They are a NBC only market and the CBS from Columbus is the other station that might go away. Dish can use a different CBS there only.

Getting locals is all so easy to understand and makes perfect sense, I don't understand all the questions. :dev lmao Iceberg may be the only one who understands it all.....

its actually pretty simple
-if you get a full set of locals from your market (Big 4 nets) and one is lost due to retrans issues....you cannot get a different affiliate
-if your market is a "short" market (only have 1 to 3 of the Big4 nets) and you get one or more networks piped in from a neighboring market, if that particular affiliate is lost due to retrans issue, dish CAN substitute a neighboring affiliate. Again this only applies to networks piped in from neighboring markets

I'm wondering with the addition of those HD conus locals if Dish will partner back up with AAD or another provider to offer distant locals?Would be nice but,I ain't holding my breath either.
