as of now you will not loose SD networks, but you will probably be out of spot for HD NYC, but Burlington Vt., just went on in HD, you probably might be in that spot. Im in Ogdensburg and am in NYC spot but not sure it makes it to Ottawa. If you are getting HD from NY now you are ok, as they went to spotbeam today. Do you have HD reciever?
I lost Boston HD locals (never had the SD as it was spot beamed). Guess I am SOL for HD Nets out of Boston. Surprisingly NESN is still coming in in both HD and SD, along with CSNNE the local NBA outlet. Would love to keep the Red Sox on NESN as the MLB paskage is not available on DISH, but the divorce would be more too expensive.
Any other options available that are not spotbeamed for HD networks? I have access to 129, 61.5, 119, 110, and 145 (???? I think). Denver??? Any chance of getting any east coast HD nets and NESN??? HD network signal has spoiled me along with the time shift I enjoy. Also NESN for the Red Sox has just been perfect. Portland. Maine??? or Providence, RI anychance they are CONUS??? I feel like I lost a good friend.
Tonight my wife tells me in a panic that the dish is not working. She wants to watch Survivor on the NYC HD feed. I am checking switches and still no 61.5 TP 15. Wind has been bad lately so I figured I need to realign 61.5. Then I thought Charlie may have moved them to spotbeam. So I checked here. At least I don't need to get the 7/16" wrenches out to dog that dish.
I always imagined Charlie getting HD Eastern time zone locals in HD while at home in Denver. I never imagined he would spotbeam the number 1 DMA . Now I have to decide if NYC SD channels are worth the extra cash. Is NYC Conus on Directv?
This really sucks. Having HD Eastern feeds rocked.
