I thought this was interesting, considering all the discussion in the past about regulations regarding local channels.

Here in Beaumont, TX the local CBS affiliate is still operating. However, they are not broadcasting OTA. I assume that they are flooded at their tower location, which is in a highly flooded area. They are available on Spectrum cable, but not on DISH. I assume that's because DISH gets their signal OTA.

After no CBS on DISH for a couple of days, I am now receiving CBS programming from Channel 4 in the Rio Grande Valley, Harlingen specifically. I find it interesting that they went 400 miles to the south to pick up a channel when there are many which are closer........Lake Charles, Lufkin, Houston, Bryan-College Station, Austin, etc. I assume this is so the local affiliate doesn't have any advertising competition from this substitute.

Thanks to DISH for bringing me some CBS service.

Now, if I can just get some tap water, I'll be fixed up.
