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...

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.

Did training in FLA. This is a fairly common sentiment. When I got the chance to move back to Nebraska, the usual reaction was one of bewilderment, like I had volunteered to be a test dummy for an electric chair manufacturer. Having lived in both places, I have to tell you that I would not move back to the land of perma-crowd and bugs.

""So, should you cancel that Florida vacation, or re-think your retirement plans? By analyzing the tracks of tropical storms for the past 100 years, the experts at Sperling’s BestPlaces have ranked which areas are most likely to be hit next by a major hurricane.

Southeast Florida (Miami-Fort Lauderdale-West Palm Beach)
Key West and the Florida keys
Southwest Florida (Fort Myers-Naples)
West Florida (Tampa-St. Petersburg-Sarasota-Clearwater)
Outer Banks islands, NC (Cape Hatteras)
Central Texas Gulf coast (Galveston)
Central Florida Atlantic coast (Melbourne-Cocoa Beach)
Florida Panhandle (Pensacola-Panama City)
Central Gulf coast (New Orleans, LA-Biloxi, MS-Mobile, AL)
South Texas Gulf coast (Corpus Christi-Brownsville)""

I'm thinking that if another hurricane hits Ft Myers she'll start pining for boring cold Nebraska. Just a hunch. Oh, and the crocodiles and mosquitoes as big as your fist. But hey, that June Florida Frizz hairdo looks good on you....

I found out on Facebook that Dish and Hearst finally settled their dispute. So KETV is now back on Dish. About time! :D
