We have all heard about markets with no UPN or no WB (we have a UPN and our WB is the cable-only WB). But what is likely to happen here with the NBC affiliate? There is none licensed to this market, yet depending on where you live in the market, your "official" NBC affiliate is KPLC (Lake Charles), KALB (Alexandria), or WVLA (Baton Rouge), so as you can see in this complicated world of Satellite TV locals, what is likely to happen when locals come around? I have figured it will be either of the following:
A: No NBC affiliate will be carried for the market
B: They will take the NBC affiliate that carries the most weight in the market, and carry that one
C: Other (please explain

I would say option B as this is what they have done in the past. :)

Well, the answer is easy - they will be carrying KPLC-7, since that IS the station considered to be THE NBC affill of this market:

As you can see from this, the ONLY NBC considered "officially" in this market is KPLC-7... ;) ;)

However, KPLC is licensed to Lake Charles, which is it's own DMA.

Therefore, all bets are off. DirecTV has not mentioned they will be offering the Lake Charles DMA. Therefore, there is no way of knowing which NBC will be offered.
