    As the stations that will be carrying the new CW network are announced it'd be great if we'd post them here. In my area where there is a local UPN and WB I'm wondering which one will go away and I'm certain others in different areas of the country are too. So, post away any rumors or news about the new network in your neck of the woods.

    The following CBS owned UPN stations were mentioned in the original press release:

    www.upn57.com Philadelphia, PA | WPSG
    www.kbhk.com San Francisco, CA | KBHK
    www.upn69.com Atlanta, GA | WUPA
    www.upn50.com Detroit, MI | WKBD
    www.upn44tv.com Tampa Bay, FL | WTOG
    www.upn11.com Seattle, WA | KSTW
    www.upn31.com Sacramento, CA | KMAX
    www.wnpatv.com Pittsburgh, PA | WNPA
    www.upn34.com West Palm Beach, FL | WTVX
    www.upn27.com Norfolk, VA | WGNT
    www.upn28.com Providence, RI | WLWC

    Along with Oklahoma which isn't listed on the CBS website.

    Which means that Granite owned WB Affiliate KBWB in San Francisco will most likely be unaffiliated.

    FWIW, I heard that our local cable only WB affiliate will become a CW affiliate. I also heard that our CBS affiliate would put it on a subchannel. But, this isn't confirmed.

    Our low power UPN is now showing the MyNetwork logo on the subchannel it is on.

    Ads for CW shows are all over billboards, bus shelters and buses here in L.A., so everyone here should know our local CW affiliate by now (since the KTLA logo is on all the ads) -- are you saying things are different in "flyover country"? :D

    Anyone know if Dish Network will still offer the Superstation pack (of which KTLA is one) once they are converted to CW or MyNetwork? I'd e-mail Dish, but we all know what kind of response I'd get. :D

    Stormy?

    Try the CW's website.

    www.cwtv.com

    Click on "stations".

    There'll be a map of the country. Locate your area, do some clicking or whatever, and you'll get a list of the CW affiliates in your area.

    I just noticed a "Change is Good" billboard for UPN44 on my way home from work this evening ...

    My local WB affiliate is coverting to CW. The best part is I got confirmation via email that they will start broadcasting in HD via Charter before the switch over. Which means I should be able to watch Smallville in HD next season. :)

    Will Lana marry Zod and have a quasi-Kryptonian baby during season 7?

    Will Chloe and Lionel be torn to shreds by an angry mob?

    Will Oliver Queen finally return to civilization after disappearing back in 1989?

    Will Clark escape from the Phantom Zone by using a handy diamond cutter he just happened to have on him? And will he fly back to Earth just in time to save Martha and Lois, once again violating the "no tights, no flights" rule in a ratings-getting season opener?

    Stay tuned....

    SMALLVILLE returns for a sixth season on September 28th, 2006, on the brand new CW...along with a number of other UPN and WB escapees. :D

    Yes. Nothing is being said here. Most people I talk to ask. "What's a CW?" Even people in the area with TiVo's, but who don't frequent the forum don't know about it. :rolleyes:

    It's going to be great in Cincinnati. The local UPN and WB affiliates lost the CW to our local CBS affiliate. WKRC (CBS Affiliate) will carry the CW as a subchannel on their digital broadcast and probably make it available to cable and satellite. So, this most likely means no HD for the CW OTA in Cinci, and probably no HD for cable or satellite. Not to mention the number of homes in Cinci that are OTA NTSC only that will lose the network all together.

    Our WB affiliate will be a MyNetworkTV (News Corp) affiliate and the UPN affiliate becomes independent and will fade into obscurity.

    I think I've heard of at least one other place where the same thing is happening.

    This is idiotic. No analog CW affiliate. As you said, people without digital receivers or cable are being left out in the cold.

    Pretty rotten thing to do to people.

    In Rochester NY the WB station was cable only (no OTA) on Time Warner Cable and UPN was OTA.

    Now CW is cable only (no OTA) on Time Warner Cable and the old UPN station is SOL.
