|May get news for the first time in a decade.|
Tallahassee (Floridas capital)
Philadelphia (even there)
Just several examples without going out on a limb.

In markets bordering Canada or other select areas, if you can get the CBC on cable or over the air Coronation Street from ITV airs Sunday Mornings. Supernanny, Jeremy Kyle, Trisha Goddard and even Ant and Decs Wanna Bet? have all had brief US editions.
Ex-pats and diehard fans alike who can afford it can subscribe to an expensive satellite service which allows one to receive BBC 1-3, Channel 4, Five, itv, BSkyB and other UK networks but will still have to pay the licence fee and have equipment to rent to convert PAL signals to NTSC I would have to believe.
Some have had mainstream success Stateside while others have a cult following compared to back in Britain. On cable BBC America only has a handful of Beeb programmes in order to appeal to US tastes making it BBC in name only if you ask me.

I lived in the mid-Hudson Valley for a period between Albany and New York but it's mainly the vast flagship tri-state market but the northern part has some of the Capital Region stations too. The cable company I had then was Freeview compared to what they have now. I used to be able to see a syndicated show on a local station and then on a then-indie superstation right after until SyndEx caused blackouts. Not sure if something would be blacked out on one or the other as maybe the FCC makes exceptions for double dipping areas. New Jersey isn't too big so they're split between NYC and Philadelphias lineups. Once Jefferson and Oneida Counties get the stations I proposed earlier, either room could be made for them on TWC, or the CNY Central ones would have to go. The pensioners will likely tell you they grew up with just three channels and a dial!
|Not yet available in CNY.|

Update: Long overdue, NBC affiliate NewsChannel 2 WKTV added CBS to DT 2.2 making it one of the newest affiliates of Americas Most-Watched Network in the nation and one of the few without a legacy analogue signal. Their half sister the CW moved to DT 2.3 and MeTV to DT 2.4. Now there may be hope up NY 12 in the North Country for NBC et al but more on that later. Since it's a small town this blog must be working somehow.
