Here it is Christmas Eve 2017,  I have now checked my over the air antenna,  repaired a cable,  tested the signal strength.   I am overwhelmed that I can get very strong signals from two different sources of Antenna TV and their guide says  5 hrs of yule log starting at 5am eastern time even thought it is snowing pretty good out.

I am in a great euphoric state that I will be able to watch some of it finally on "live" TV.   Cannot recorded it yet but that is not the point.  After years of frustration I might be able to listen to a large portion of it  (depending on when I wake up or grand kids get me up).

Steve, I am glad you were able to receive the Antenna TV Broadcast this year.  We only have one affiliate, and it is hard to pick up the few stations that we do get with an indoor antenna,

Chip,
I'm not sure which section this should go to, so please if it is in the wrong one, could you move it for me?

Well, I can no longer get WPIX or the other Superstations.    Last week we have very high wind gust for 2 days straight, and it knocked over my satellite dish and broke the mounting bracket for the LNB to the arm of my dish.

I had to go to Cleveland Clinic yesterday and there was a change that I would be there for a few days or more if they were going to do some surgery.  So being I didn't know how long I was going to be in the hospital, and that I couldn't actually pick up any signal from Dish Network, I called them to see if there was a way I could get a credit for the number of days I would be in the hospital, since I wouldn't be home to let a technician in and they told me that I could put my account on "Vacation" and only pay $10.00 a month until I get back from the hospital.  So i said that would be fine and wehn I get back from the hospital I could just call to have them take it off "Vacation"

Well I didn't need the surgery yet because they had to do an X-Ray with contrast and because I still have swelling from the previous surgery, they are going to wait at least a few more weeks.

I came home lat evening, and I was able to get the mounting bracket for the LNB, and got the dish re-aimed.  I called Dish Network to have my service taken off of "Vacation" and then they asked me to check and make sure all my stations where there, and unfortunately WPIX, WWOR, WSBK, KWGN and KTLA were gone. 

When I told the customer service rep that they were gone, she told me that I couldn't get them back because they stopped offering the Superstation package in 2013 and because I had my service put on vacation for even just 3 days, that voided me being grandfathered in.  They have no way of even overriding that.

I was on the phone for over an hour trying to find a way to get that package back because I was NOT told that if I put my service on Vacation, that I would lose that package.  Even if I were to upgrade my receivers to their Hopper system, I would lose that package.

So now I can only hope that Antenna TV will continue to broadcast it each year, and the full 5-hours.  Also that they might put a commercial in between the 3rd and 4th hour like they did a few years ago.

I won't get The Honeymooners anymore.  Yes they are available on DVD as well as other programs that WPIX airs, especially around Thanksgiving and Christmas, but it is so much better to actually watch them when they air on WPIX

That's such a shame, Susan, that you lost your Superstation package. Dish Network really did you a disservice.

You should write them a strong letter of complaint for doing that to you.

If it's any consolation, yes, Sean (Compton) will continue to air the Yule Log on his Antenna TV network. He made that pledge to me several years ago and has kept it. So as long as he's in charge at Tribune Broadcasting, rest assured it will air on Antenna TV.

Thank you Chip,
From what I was told, Tribune is no longer offering the Superstation package to Cable, Satellite or Fiber Optic Television providers.  I have read several complaints that say something that even if Charlie Ergen, the President of Dish Network had changed his equipment or services, that he couldn't get the Superstation Package back either. (Yeah Right) lol

I can't get a distant CW network because we have a local CW network station.

It isn't right, even if I go to one of those Pick and Choose Streaming Channel Services, I can't get WPIX, unless it was in my Direct Marketing area.  So why even offer a Pick and Choose Service?  If I am willing to pay for a specific channel, it shouldn't matter where I am located.

As you know, I love the Classic Television Movies and Programs, and yes we get some shows like I've Got A Secret and What's My Line, but our Local station that gives us Retro TV or MeTV, Get TV, Grit TV etc, they don't give us all the programs that the actual Networks are, and they fill in with a local talk show or a local bowling show.  So even it I were watching, Hazel and then they advertises that Leave It To Beaver is "coming up next on most of these stations", I will get the local bowling show instead.

It is good to know that Antenna TV will continue to broadcast The Yule Log.

I will miss not being able to have a backup network though for when WPIX airs it, since I could get a few changes at different times to DVR it. and if there was bad weather, it might not last long enough to affect both channels being they broadcast The Yule Log at different times.
