The reason is this....
If your market has an Ion affiliate owned by the net (some aren't) Dish and DIrectv just remap the national feed to your local number. So here in Minneapolis they map it to 41 (which is our Ion affiliate)
Since there is no Mountain or Pacific markets on EA it doesnt pay to add a 3 hour delayed feed
My daughter had asked me about some of those cartoons that she used to watch on ION-W when we were on WA. Now that I know that they are Qubo shows, she can watch them again! The reason I didn't know they were being shown on Qubo is because our Qubo local subchannel is one of the "Digital Service" no guide channels. Thanks for making that connection for me, Ice!
