veander said:Honestly who lives in an area with only one CBS station that also happens to be O&O? Using Antennaweb.org I can't find any yet (checking address by address in the major areas). Like in Minneapolis it seems there are a couple CBSs, Foxs, etc. What I would like to know is what's the difference if I get an affiliate in HD and not this CBS-HD from LA or NY?
I love when people give me this kind of detail in response. Thank you! I did misread the antennaweb.org. I didn't even notice that they post Digital and non-digital versions of the station on the same page.Iceberg said:If you live in the Mpls/St Paul area, you qualify (I lived in the Mpls area for 15 years)..Where are you getting 2 CBS & FOX stations in the area?? You might be including Digital
An affiliate will pre-empt programming for sports, Billy Graham, etc. The O&O do not pre-empt programming. As an example, KEYC (CBS Mankato) has MN Vikings pre-season football..
sorry for the long post

D* is installing an OTA package for me next Monday. I hope it all works. Anyway, it's possible I was on the phone with a D* numbskull but this guy told me I would need to fill out a waiver for the CBS-HD where I am moving. Would I still fill out a waiver but be automatically accepted since I am in an O&O area?
will be living in Burnsville, MN which is just south of the Mpls/St Paul area by about 20 minutes on 35W South (who named those two highways?).
