    Congrats and welcome aboard the HD LIL channel bandwagon!

    I can still remember when my local HD channels came up, and it is an exciting time.

    Enjoy! :)

    I hope so...that way you can see the Marquette Warriors kicking booty in the NCAA tournament in glorious HD right there in Brew Town.

    dangit racer...my heart always skips a bit when I see Columbia-Jefferson City MO and their new locals...

    I'm patiently waiting until you say "Columbia, SC locals"

    But, by the time Cola locals get here...I bet I'll be moving to my internship site :(...hopefully THEY'LL have their locals in HD ;)

    Satracer, are you at liberty (or even have the knowledge) of if there are ongoing negotiations to set-up HD locals in the Lafayette, LA market?

    They already have issues with KPLC in Lake Charles, since it serves as the dual market NBC station, but doesn't supply their feed in SD to the Lafayette market (meaning SD LiL NBC is out of Jackson, Mississippi (huh??))

    If not, that's perfectly fine. Appreciate all the info you bestow upon us, and keep it comin'!!

    Things could be a lot worse - here in Montgomery, Alabama, DirecTV does not offer SD channels much less HD. Thank goodness for great OTA reception!!

    What about Yakima, Wa? Does anybody know when Yakima Wa, Kennewick, Wa, Pendleton, Oregon will get Hd locals? I know it's an East Coast Bias going on here.

    Well, you're talking to a Warrior...there are a few of us on this message board that are Warriors, not Golden Eagles. :D
