Well The WB never scrambled any of its feeds throughout that time (1998).
At least this might further explain that Ku was a source for several newsfeeds and satellite news gathering (SNG) feeds.Any mention of news feeds is with respect to content from the mother ship. They make mention of "backhauls of all kinds" but they don't say whether it is from the affiliates or from network-sponsored production trucks.
There's little to nothing there to support your claim. There are more reasons why you shouldn't use Ku than evidence that the affiliates did might have.
Not till I find some answers, Ken Werner the VP of Distribution at The WB Network at the time (now retired) might probably have it (or I could wait for a Satellite TV Week Magazine edition from June 1998 to appear on eBay).I don't mean to pour water on the interest of the original poster but given that you are effectively the only one posting to your own thread, perhaps its time to let this thread die and find someone or somewhere else that shares your personal interests? All you are doing is posting nonsense to keep this thread alive. Can this thread be closed?
