Indianapolis Legal Notice has arrived on a Tuesday.
They are getting Military Channel HD on or after March 1 and apparently EWTN En Espanol HD. BHN Bakersfield had this channel listed in their lineup a year or two ago but it was removed. What is interesting is Indianapolis does not even have EWTN HD so not sure why they are getting this channel.
The only other news is it appears March 31 might be a drop dead date for The Lifetime Networks. I might go get a paper this morning to be sure we do not miss our notice but am tired right now.
