I am authorized and pay the monthly fee to receive the distant network feeds and per the directv website I am "grandfathered" to continue receiving these feeds as I now can receive my local channels as well however obviously enjoy the multiple feeds of the major networks. I also pay the monthly fee for the HD Package which of course allows me to watch the local channels in HD. The problem is that I cannot receive the distant network feeds on the HD channels (I receive the 380-390 channels only) and when I inquired with directv they indicated that I was not authorized to receive these channels in HD as I can receive my local channels in HD. Does this make sense and does this sound like accurate information? I did not make a stink as I wanted to make sure I continue to receive the distant network feeds however as I think about it, if I am grandfathered to receive the distant network feeds and pay for both the feeds as well as the HD package, what difference does it make. Does anybody else have the same situation or can offer some advice towards accomplishing my goal of receiving the distant network feeds in HD as well? Thanks for your input in advance.
