    I remember an article floating around a couple of months ago about the possibility of the Dish Network canning the WB & UPN stations. Does anybody know the status of this?

    At this time, Dish is keeping the superstations but new customers will have to qualify to receive them. I believe current superstation customers are currently grandfathered but that will probably change too. If someone were to go to the Dish website and type in a Los Angeles address, they would qualify for the WB superstations but not the UPN superstations. I assume the local UPN station requested black outs of programming so Dish has decided to just black out the channel to make it easier to comply.

    What URL do you type in your address for such qualification?

    Thanks. Looks like I still qualify for both superstations, but I suspect that one of them (the one with a strong signal) has not complained yet.
