In addition to the Tegna channels returning

KZUP-CD Baton Rouge, KJJC Great Falls, KGBT Harlingen, WJMN Marquette, WPHL-D2 Philly, WPRI-D2 Providence, WSAV-D3 Savannah and WPNY Utica are now live

325/91 FRESH is now VALU

SD LIL removals:
Columbus OH, Indy, Norfolk, Orlando, Salt Lake City, San Antonio, Tampa and Zanesville lost their SD LILs
Greensboro, Miami, Nashville, Philly, Portland OR, Raleigh, Richmond and Roanoke now have additional SD LIL removal warnings as a final notice
Baltimore now has a SD LIL removal warning.

HD remaps for Greensboro's WFMY, Raleigh's WTVD and Roanoke's WDBJ & WSET have been added to their SigView DMAs

9755 PEACOCK (Wild Card game info) has been removed with its TPN slot going to 9756 *GIFT (League Pass on Us)

The D12/TPN 23 channels have moved to D12/TPN 14

Passing along Gracenote's correction of WTVKDT's virtual numbers

The KHOU Houston being labeled as Sacramento error has been corrected
 
Here's where the MPEG-2/SD local removals stand right now:

Columbus OH, Indianapolis, Norfolk, Orlando, Salt Lake City, San Antonio, Tampa and Zanesville were removed this past week
Greensboro, Miami, Nashville, Philly, Portland OR, Raleigh, Richmond and Roanoke now have their final notices in multiple slots
Baltimore, Birmingham, Boston, Charlotte, Cleveland, Denver, Houston, Memphis, Paducah, Pittsburgh, Sacramento, Seattle and Washington DC have single notices

We also have confirmation via another thread that they started notifying people in Detroit about a month ago.

The remaining 101 markets without any confirmed notification so far are NYC, LA, Chicago, Dallas, San Francisco, Atlanta, Minneapolis, Phoenix, St. Louis and Greenville SC
(The only D9S/101 channels for Albuquerque are SigViewed from Denver, their in market SD locals are on 119)


Considering that they have no more than 14 MPEG-2/SD channels per transponder, with some slight shuffling they can fit NYC (16), LA (19), Chicago (17) and Dallas (16) after the 6 D9S spotbeam transponders switch to national beams via D16, and have enough wiggle room if additional MPEG-2/SD LILs ever need to be added to these markets because of future ownership/contract/affiliation/location changes. i.e. if their deals with TBN, Daystar, TCT and CTN ever lapse and they need to honor the must carry status of their O&Os. For convenience, they would also have room to move the 4 NYC and 5 LA DNS feeds to these transponders.

The remaining 101 markets without any confirmed notification so far are NYC, LA, Chicago, Dallas, San Francisco, Atlanta, Minneapolis, Phoenix, St. Louis and Greenville SC
Dallas, Detroit, Greenville SC, Phoenix, San Francisco and St. Louis now have INFO channels.

As of today, NYC (16), LA (19), Chicago (17), Atlanta (16) and Minneapolis (12) are the only remaining markets without INFO channels. With some shuffling, they will have enough room to keep all 5 of those markets on the 101 slot after D9S goes away.

Not much different to report
Kyle noted a lot of the changes yesterday
6 New INFO slates about closing SD_LILs Mostly TPN 12 and 20
SD on Sat 101 is not much longer

Cox Media Group dispute
20 channels in 10 markets have been pulled

Weekly Analysis soon for full update
Enjoy

In addition to the Cox remaps and the new SD LIL removal INFO channels

Phoenix now has CW via KAZT/7
Columbus MS's FOX and CW affiliates swapped networks

The main Showtime channels have been relabled to ParSHO

9758 GIFT (Center Ice On Us) is now live

Passing along some OTA updates from Gracenote
 
Dallas, Detroit, Greenville SC, Phoenix, San Francisco and St. Louis now have INFO channels.

As of today, NYC (16), LA (19), Chicago (17), Atlanta (16) and Minneapolis (12) are the only remaining markets without INFO channels. With some shuffling, they will have enough room to keep all 5 of those markets on the 101 slot after D9S goes away.

But will they keep all five? Wouldn't it make more sense to get rid of them all, except for the NYC/LA channels also used for DNS? Then they could add more HD channels to 101.

If they were going to keep SD markets beyond NYC and LA I guess Chicago as #3 in size might make sense, but Atlanta (#7) and especially Minneapolis (#15) would be strange to keep around if they have already booted out #4 Philly and have served notice on #5 Dallas.
