    Terre Haute, IN has had a recent shuffle of affiliates, with the former Fox affiliate changing to ABC. In response, WTHI (owned by LIN), which is the CBS affiliate, began broadcasting Fox on their subchannel. DirecTV has placed CBS 10.1 on channel 10 and Fox 10.2 on channel 11. The Fox feed on DirecTV is in 480i SD.

    I spoke with the station manager, and he said that Fox is indeed broadcast in 480i OTA on channel 10.2, but that WTHI provides full-bandwidth HD feeds of both CBS and Fox directly to Time Warner Cable and Dish Network. He also said that DirecTV has the license and permission from WTHI to do the same, but as of yet, DirecTV has instead elected to merely rebroadcast WTHI's OTA signal, with only the SD Fox feed.

    Does anyone know if DirecTV has plans to take up WTHI's offer to carry the full HD feeds of both CBS and Fox? I know most of these changes take some time to implement, so hopefully it won't be too long before they do.

    To save you some possible confusion: CW is a subchannel of KFVS (12.3). :)

    Received the letter about the launch of Panama City locals over the weekend. Called in (I've been waiting to make this call for many years!) and the CSR stated she would add locals to my account. So far I can only get the national feeds.
    The channels on the letter are:
    WTVY CBS HD 4
    WJHG NBC HD 7
    CW 8
    WMBB ABC HD 13
    WPGX FOX HD 28
    WPCT IND HD 46
    WFSG PBS HD 56

    The letter says "has recently launched" with no date. The CSR stated soon, but would not give me a date. I can get several national feeds on some of the 60 channels which I could not get prior to this, so I think they are working on it. Checking in every day to see if the locals come up.

    Broken...
    Tulsa's PBS station is KOED, but it is channel 11, not 13. However, I checked my guide just now and KOED was missing. I went to add it back in and noticed it is now listed as a virtual channel. I think that DirecTV has taken KETA 13 from Oklahoma City and placed it on Tulsa's channel 11. Since it seems that the Oklahoma Educational Television Authority (OETA) has ended all city-specific shows, I guess it won't matter that DirecTV isn't carrying the local signal.

    Any word on Terre Haute, IN getting Fox in HD? They used to provide the local CBS, NBC, and Fox in HD, and provide a DNS ABC... Then last month, the Fox affiliate switched to ABC. DirecTV now provides CBS, NBC, and ABC in HD, but is only providing Fox in SD.

    Any word on when they will add Fox back in HD?

    Casper was not on the list announced this year. Maybe next year you'll get good news.

    My area (Utica, NY) is on the list for this year. It is among 3 of the remaining markets that are slated for locals. Can I rely on it being this year if D says it will be? I have a feeling they'll wait until 12/31

    I received a letter from D* the other day stating Utica locals will be turned on November 9th. They have been in test mode for 2 weeks.
