    Grr.
    I put off buying a Dish network 6000 receiver because, among other things, the Superbowl wasn't going to be shown in HDTV in Denver due to ABC not having their antenna up (long story, different thread)
    Now I find out that the FCC is going to let ABC broadcast the game here via a special exemption! Of course, it's three days away and I cannot find a model 6000 receiver+OTA module. Anyone know where I can get one in the Denver area or online if they can ship next day/Saturday delivery??
    I've tried to get through to http://www.dishdepot.com

    Whoops, I meant CBS, and they are trying to broadcast via PBS's feed, which I believe is 18-2
    I'm now hearing it's not quite a done deal...FCC needs to reply to waiver...this may go down to the wire...

    As of earlier today, it's a done deal. The PBS DTV station in Denver will carry the CBS HDTV feed for the SuperBowl.
