I see on the following link that omaha locals, CBS, FOX, NBC, and ABC are available in HD on Ciel 2. Previously they were only on 61.5. The problem is I do not see these on the guide and was wondering if I had to call dish network, or if anybody else was able to see these yet? I checked the transponder 7 and I was getting a signal of 57.

Chanels 4592-4595.

They have not actually been uplinked yet. There is no tentative date scheduled for uplinking that I am aware of as of now. Markets scheduled for uplinking on 129 can be found here:

I wonder how come they can't just upload them now, since they are already live on 61.5. You wouldn't think it would require anything additional to uplink them to 129.

I was wondering myself, as I am pretty dumb with this stuff, but what's the wait? I think it's completely stupid that if they are there they should be on. I almost left to go to D* because of it. Why should I have to put on another antenna to get locals that I am already paying for. :mad:

I thought about trying to get Sioux City locals because I think we are just in the spotbeam. I checked the transponder from 129 that the locals are on and I am getting a signal. It makes no sense that Sioux City locals are on 129 but a huge city like Omaha is on 61.5, which makes more people have to put up an extra satellite!

There are people in markets that don't even have that option at present as they have no HD locals available by satellite.

Maybe E* is going to try to get some of those markets up first. I don't know.

You guys should keep this updated so I can rip that damn 2nd dish off my roof and figure out how to patch it. I got a free 61.5 dish b/c 2 months after i signed up they put locals on 61.5 and i cried to CEO and they had it installed for free.
