Question Looks like SD is removing Spokane option from new subscribers in east!

Discussing with some friends the good and bad about SD, we noticed some changes.

New subscribers must now first select their province.

Then their US network feeds. Previously they could select EAST or WEST and then either feed from their selected region. Things have changed however.

Those in the West may choose between Seattle or Spokane and those in the East choose between Buffalo or Detroit.

HOWEVER, the problem is obvious when it comes to timeshifting!

Those in the west may choose between Buffalo and Detroit.

Those in the east have no choice and only get Seattle!

We actually discovered this by accident while trying to find SD bilingual packages.

(Those of us in the east currently subscribing to Spokane will have to be careful and hopefully have our choices grandfathered. In reality I have no idea how this may affect existing subscribers who want to modify their programming)
