    If we can't get anymore HD channels, then how about adding some of the SD channels, like AntennaTV and MeTV? Oldies that aren't in HD but have a nice following. Ever since TVLand decided to start airing their in house programming, there is very little out there, in regards to true oldies stations.

    Most of them are locked into local contracts and would need to be put on as locals rather than national.

    I'd like to see DirecTV give my area The CW in HD, it's only SD currently.
    The OTA is HD.

    But not in one of the major area as San Francisco Bay Area. One has to have an AM21 to pick up 20.2 OTA RTV is also OTA, but it is not as a Channel Guide other then "Regular Programming."

    We have MeTV as a subchannel in our local DMA, in Syracuse. They can give us ION, in our locals tier, but not this channel.

    The only markets that have MeTV as a local via DirecTV are the ones that have it as the main channel, like WZME in the NYC area, WWME in Chicago or KTXD in Dallas. As for Ion, it's an OTA network that's a main station in many markets, as part of their recent renewal deal with Ion, DirecTV started remapping the national feed to the channel number of the local station in the markets where they don't carry the local affiliate.

    MeTV (KVOS Seattle) has been on Directv for about a year now. Hope it comes to other areas soon.

    The Harrisburg PA DMA is receiving MeTV from WHP Harrisburg Channel 21. It is actually carried on Channel 21.2 and is shown on Channel 22 on DirecTV.

    WHP 21.2 is MyNetworkTV, a network initially created by Fox so their UPN affiliates as well as any other UPN or WB affiliate that didn't get The CW have something to air in primetime. MeTV is a different network.

    I apologize for my error. WGCB-49 out of Red Lion is showing some MeTV programming and is carried on Channel 49 on DirecTV in the Harrisburg DMA. It is available in DT but I have yet to see any HD programming on the channel.

    I am sure when these locals renew contracts with Directv, one of the topics will be having Directv pick up the sub-channels as part of the negotiations. "You want KCOP, well you need to put on Bounce and Movies TV channels"

    Wonder if that is kosher.

    I wonder if the new satellite will be enough to accommodate what needs to get added in high definition at the locals and nationals levels.

    I would guess that the additional capacity that D14 will provide will be more than adequate.

    MeTV does not carry any HD programming. I don't know about the others, but KVOS (Seattle/Bellingham) is 480i/MPEG4 on Directv.
