Cox cable has a Monoply on all UPN in Omaha. They bought the rights so no one can do free over the air here.
Its only on O2TV on cox.
Who to talk to about this to get it fixed: Email CBS- Viacom they own UPN.
Here is the contact for the Central Time Zone UPN Rep.
I have contacted this person in the past. They said they were happy with the 75% market coverage that cox gives them. I also asked for UPN in HD as they have several shows in HDTV (most major market show them in HD now).
I said that is 75% Omaha Metrol NOT the who DMA market of OMaha and Lincoln. And many do not have or want Cox.
I suggested that they add a UPN SUper Station like DishNetwork has. On Dishnetwork it is only $1.50 more a Month for one of the UPNs. If you want Two UPNS and 3 WBS it is $5 more a Month.
Anyway I sent the suggestion and they said they will research the idea and they were happy to know they have UPN fans in OMaha.
I would EMail them and let them know you dont want Cox and you want to watch UPN on Direct TV (dont tell them I sent you as they probably would not want a flood of emails caused by me).
Tell them you cant watch UPN and would love to watch many of there show either free over the Air or on Direct TV.

Below is the Email.
I certainly can understand your frustration at not being able to receive UPN over the air in Omaha, and we here at UPN would like nothing better than to have UPN on a broadcast station in the market.
While I have been working to secure clearance of UPN in Omaha, the full power stations are committed to the other networks, so having UPN on Cox Cable reaching 75% of the market is our best option right now. I keep close watch on the market to see what opportunity for us may arise.
We are always looking to improve clearance and knowing we have such fans in Omaha will help in the effort.
