WIVB Local LIN Station Advertised OTA Alternative


For those of us in a market with a LIN Media station, we see the scrolling notice, that if you are a DishNetwork subscriber you may lose your signal, since LIN Media has not be able to reach a re-transmission deal with Dishnetwork.

Anyhow this is not new, but still great to see. Our local LIN station WIVB out of Buffalo, in their notice is letting viewers know that they can always pick up their station free via an antenna. My personal opinion, if a DishNetwork viewer with a HDTV actually puts up an antenna to get WIVB, they will be shock by the superior quality of WIVB OTA signal. I doubt there will be any takers to the OTA signal from DishNetwork subscribers, but it would be great if some did try OTA.
