Thanks Dr. Sat,

We always have included the Timeshift Bundle as one of our themes to access a second US feed. Although we're in Ontario we have the WEST feed with SPOKANE as our primary choice with EAST Detroit with PBS Buffalo as our TIMESHIFT selection.

As best as we can tell this will be grandfathered along with our Canada wide included TIMESHIFT channels.

However, the point I was making was that new SD subscribers in the east no longer appear to have any option to select the Spokane feeds. They are just stuck with Seattle for both HD and SD!

This may be the thin edge of the wedge in an attempt to phase out Spokane.
I sure hope not! Many of us find Spokane programming better than Seattle, just as so very many prefer PBS Buffalo over Detroit!
