If they would be interested in allowing Dish to broadcast free of charge, I'm sure Dish might be interested....

actually WWME is on 23-1. The only reason Weigel is carrying it on 26 is because 23 (and 48) are LOW POWERED whereas 26 is full powered

OK...lets go through this again,. shall we

IT IS A LOW POWERED STATION
THEREFORE IT DOES NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT QUALIFY FOR MUST CARRY


you can post the same sh*t over and over again it isn't going to change anything. Low powered stations do not qualify for must carry. So Dish is not obligated to carry it

There must be hundreds, if not thousands (thank you, digital), of these subchannels.....all with the same kind of programming......of perhaps some local value....or reruns available already. The world NEEDS more Jerry Springer! NEEDS it!

I like Alan. Let him preach. Although, Alan, I would only recommend doing the programming request thread, just to keep it on topic. Otherwise, I see nothing wrong with asking for more.

I know. I was meeting in the middle, with the recommendation to take it to the programming request thread. I get where both sides are coming from. He wants more channels, you are tired of hearing it. I agree it shouldn't be on every thread unless that very specific channel is relevant to the conversation, and other then increasing bills and reduced bandwidth(Even less hd sports the ), most people would benefit. I have been watching it for awhile now. Much further back then this thread. Like I posted on one of these threads, I just get sick of the EPL complaints(beyond requests), as it never has been offered on dish from NBC, and the constant bitching about the equipment fees. So, I understand EXACTLY where you are. Lol. It just doesn't bother me as much I guess.

The other issue is the OP doesn't realize (or doesn't want to realize) that since the station is a low powered station, it doesn't qualify for must carry. Weigel can ask for it to be carried and if Dish says no they (Weigel) are screwed. Their only "fallback" is when the agreement comes up they hold their other full power stations hostage unless Dish carries the LP. Don't get me wrong. Dish DOES carry some Weigel LP stations but most of them are associated with major networks (South Bend, IN comes to mind. Weigel owns the ABC and My there). Its been posted numerous times here and at avsforum. Then he will say "well just upgrade to full power" and its been posted (again numerous times) that you just can't "upgrade to full power" when you are classified as a LP. The main issue is the CW in Madison (Janesville) Wisconsin is on the same RF channel (32) so upgrading isnt an option due to the short spacing of the stations. If I remember right, WMEU has to have a directional antenna for that reason
