    I don't know what wild feeds is but last season 24 aired on monday nights of the next week on the FX channel. I watched OTA if I remembered but always tivo'd FX's 24 just in case. Will do the same this year if that is still true.

    Dwight, wild feed is for people with 6ft satellite dishes. The networks send out their shows to Canadian affiliates and such usually around 2AM a day or 2 before the show is to air, and if you have the right equipment you can watch too [​IMG]

    I can't answer the question about wild feeds either, but the FX satellite/cable channel is repeating each episode of "24" twice this season. The first is Mondays at 11 p.m. Eastern time, then again Tuesdays, at something like 5 or 6 p.m., I don't remember exactly.

    If wild feeds that are "prefeeds" of network programming aren't rare or nonexistent then someone at the network is being far too generous, as someone can record the feed directly to an MPEG file in his Kazaa folder and then Shazam! it's all over the Internet. Surely the network can provide the necessary descramblers to affiliates in the Great White North just the same as they do in the U.S.

    And a wild feed and DirecTV are polar opposites.

    Best part is wild feeds have NO onscreen logos, and no commercials (just a few seconds of black in between segments where the commercial breaks go).

    the other thing about the 10 foot dishes is their picture quality is fantastic on a good signal, makes DSS look like poo. if you live in an area without "neighborhood standards" restrictions against enormous dishes, then go for it. you also have to admit it's pretty high tech and cool to have a full sized dish sitting next to your house..
