    Seeing you posted your location as HERE .... we can't help you much further without more info ....

    Do you live in the NY area and need them elsewhere ?
    Wpix is not available if you need them Conus.

    However, If you are outside of the NY area, you could get the MLB Baseball package and the Mets would be available there.

    You should also know that if you ever have WPIX taken off of your subscription dish will not put it back as part of your subscription. all those superstations on dish are grandfathered services.

    I gave up on the super stations years ago when they stopped showing Star Trek
