what gets me is anyone with nlos for 129 and a 61.5 wing will be screwed.
I was told only two would be lit up in March and the other two within three months. So, who knows? Time will tell I guess. Some peeps have been only waiting since May of 2006 for them; so what's a few more months or years!?I've been advised that HD locals finally come to Indy tomorrow on Dish Network. Unfortunately, I was also advised that only three of the four feeds will be offered as NBC is not part of the program. Assuming the information provided was not in error, once again, Dish manages to bungle things relative to its competition.
They are indeed live, but there is no channel 13 as stated in this thread. That sucks. As long as they get it turned on by the start of football season, so I can watch Sunday Night Football in HD I will be happy. At least I can watch basketball in HD on ABC.
My guess is technical. Also saw WTTV uplinked. But that might be a while since the digital delay and freeing up the WXIN tower. Regardless, my goose is cooked. No way no how I can get 129 on my property. So my quandary is: Stay with Dish and get a 722k which they said they would do. Or, go to Direct, with whom I have install scheduled in two weeks and save about $400.00 for a year. This has been a TOUGH decision. It's the Dish equipment I don't want to loose, but...I wonder if channel 13 is a technical issue or a contract issue?
The reason you have a 61.5 is probably because you have LOS problems, as do I. Sat 129 fairly low to the horizon. Don't touch it the 61.5 dish and get it out of alignment. We're up the creek.Since my current setup is 110/119 and a wing at 61.5, can I simply swing 61.5 to see 129, or is it more complicated than that? Would I lose any channels that way? C.S. is useless....
