Hartford is going to be on the Dish 500. But you are right they have been silent about it ever since.

Any word on Wisconsin markets?

I've seen some indications that the Wisconsin markets (Milwaukee/Madison/Green Bay) previously announced for 105/Superdish have encountered a problem because of a Canadian satellite.

Any chance Dish will move these locals to 110 to get them off the ground? I'm not sure what space Dish has at 110, and I'd be very surprised to see them try to clear space by moving cities already at 110 to 105 (that would make for a lot of anngry people), but they could switch the markets not yet online scheduled for 110 that don't have the Canadian interference problem to 105, I suppose.

I hope this does not cause a delay for the other locals that were supposed to be launched after those by the end of the year on SuperDish and 110.
