I recently noticed after returning from vacation, the ABC affiliate is either WMUR in Nh or WCVB in Boston. The default appears to be WMUR, which is an annoyance if you live in the Boston area.
The only time that I see WCVB is when the stream is different, usually local content. If national content, the default appears to be WMUR. My provider for internet is Verizon FIOS. Any one have a similar situation? Hulu tells me that it is my ip and Verizon’s issue.

Yeah that is a common issue with live TV services. It may fix itself at some point.

I have Verizon FiOS and the same thing happens here, both WCVB and WMUR are in the Boston DMA, I live south of Boston and still get WMUR over WCVB when the same content is on both. Guessing Hulu did not plan for this since I doubt there is to many DMAs with 2 of the same networks in it. Hopefully they fix it at some point. With DirecTV Now & Youtube TV I get both in the guide and can select either one. PSVue only shows WCVB, not sure if that is different in NH or not.
