Dr. Phil forgot to tell them about the midnight ET launch, so we missed out on the countdown, launch video and the first 6 hours of programming. The network doesn't provide an E/I block, so WMBC in NYC pre-empts 6am-8am on weekdays and 6am-9am on weekends for E/I, public affairs and their remaining brokered programming.

ShopHQ HD is in test mode, using the TPN slot that previously had the test feed of NBC East

Goodbye March Madness, hello Masters and Roland-Garros

The D11 TPN 14 channels moved to TPN 2

CINE 176 is live again and is no longer being repurposed for the MLBEI auth channel

9758 MOVIES (Ultimate package offer) is now live

SD LIL progress:
Baltimore, Birmingham, Houston, Seattle and DC are now pointing to the slate
Dallas, Detroit, Greenville, Phoenix, San Francisco and St. Louis now have their final notices in multiple slots

WSOC Charlotte's HD feed is now available to select areas in the Greensboro DMA after losing the SD feed a few weeks ago
 
Im sure the special event feeds (9001-9001) along with the CINEHD feeds are all being used up for this busy sports day/night with Masters Experience, 15 NBA games, 5 NHL games, 14 MLB games (including 2 for Apple TV 9528/9529), 8 ESPN+Biz events (6 in primetime), and Power Slap on 9537… even Monumental has an alt cast of the Wizards game that is taking up a feed on 642-1
Channels 769 and 770 are NBA LP for tonight

For those wondering what happens if the report about the Coyotes moving to Salt Lake City next season ends up being true. Arizona will still be in their TV territory, however they will lose the exclusive status for the state, while over in Utah the Golden Knights and Avalanche will no longer be available as in market teams.

If the multi year deal they signed with Scripps included a clause that lets their stations keep the TV rights in the event of relocation, odds are Arizona 61 will air both teams next season like Utah 16 currently does. Idaho 6 and MTN Montana would likely be part of the new Utah NHL TV territory too.
