Why aren't WTBS and WGN included in the Superstation Package?
WTBS and WGN as available through cable and Satellite are no longer technically Superstations. They are now basic cable channels.
WTBS 17 Atlanta is now the sole broadcast affiliate of the TBS basic cable channel. TBS is available on the AT60 Programming package or higher.
WGN Superstation and WGN 9 Chicago only share about 50% of the same program schedule. WGN Superstation is a basic cable channel available as part of the AT100CD Programming package or higher. WGN 9 Chicago is available to Chicago Designated Marketing Area (DMA) residents as part of the Dish Locals package.
