Hopefully, this blackout won't last too long. I know that if it continues into the fall, there will be lots of pi$$ed off Husker fans in Omaha. As you probably know, most Nebraska football games air on ABC, which KETV is the affiliate for in Omaha. So if they can't watch their team play, they'll be furious.

Now I used to be with Dish and I got the Omaha stations despite living in Lincoln. I guess now I'm glad I'm no longer with Dish because of this. Otherwise I wouldn't be able to watch "Wheel of Fortune". I don't understand why "Jeopardy!" airs on WOWT and "Wheel" on KETV. The only time they were both on the same station was back in the late 80's/early 90's when they aired on KMTV. Personally, if it were up to me, they'd still be on KMTV today.

Buy an OTA antenna and receive all the local channels.


As for who carries what game show -- it is who wants to pay to rebroadcast it.

Or better yet, a perfect time for Dish Owners to head out to their favorite sports bar.. Enjoy a pint or two with some lunch/dinner..and catch the games there..

Wait a minute! I have Cox, currently have KETV..and still do this at least half of the time anyway, :;): lol...

Ciao..LiO...Peace

Those are now both syndicated shows, as opposed to network shows. They will appear in most major markets, but not on stations affiliated with any certain network.

I already knew that. For the last 30+ years, "Jeopardy!" and "Wheel of Fortune" have aired on 10/11 here in Lincoln mainly due to the fact that for so many years it was the only commercial station in Lincoln until 1996 when KLKN signed on. But nevertheless, both shows still air on 10/11 today.
