Only watch NBC for the show Blacklist. I would hate to see it go, but safe for now, I suppose!

Any idea on if we are going to get a replacement NBC?

I watch a good deal of hockey and NBC carries it. Also, they were still broadcasting as of 1/1 as I watched the winter classic on WVGN.

I get NBC on DISH from New York and San Francisco. I watched the PR feed once in a whlte but the Spanish language commercials were always annoying.

I never watch TV in real time so I always skip the commercials. At least the local feed is HD. The Distant Network feeds are only available in SD since Dish took the bandwidth away in 2010.
