    Please DirectTV add Mobile/Pensacola DMA.... It was announced it was suppose to be done in 2006. I know you won't have FOX & CW because it is owned by LIN, please give us HD locals that we were told about so long ago.

    It looks like this morning the new Orlando channels (CW and MyTV) are in HD. This was a huge unexpected surprise for me and the Mrs. The CW was the last channel on our list of that we absolutely wanted in HD. Now we can finally watch clear versions of Smallville and Everybody Hates Chris. We are very psyched!!! :D

    Thank You DirecTV. Everything after this that is switched to HD is just a bonus.

    The uplink facility for D* near Pensacola was destroyed by Katrina and no one has fixed it yet.

    Be careful, this list is not totally correct. Orange County in the Raleigh/Durham DMA is not covered. See the Directv website.

    I know! Or in my case, not so patiently. I'm watching NBC, ABC, CBS and Fox on my OTA but PBS (8-1, 8-2) never comes in and the others can be dicey. I get occasional pixelation and "searching" messages. It's better than nothing but come on, D*!

    Does anyone know if it is possible to get the Albany N.Y. HD locals if you are traveling outside the viewing area. Such as in a travel camper. My parents visit S.C. frequently with their Winnebago.

    Most likely the HD locals are spot-beams only. I'm not sure how big the spot-beam coverage area is, but Albany to S.C. is pretty far ...

    Springfield/Holyoke is its own market (Nielsen DMA #109 according to Wikipedia). Hartford/New Haven (#32) has CBS (3), NBC (30) and Fox (61) in HD. Unfortunately, ABC (8) is owned by Lin, so I doubt we'll see that anytime soon. Also, CW (20) is a very small station and although they broadcast OTA in HD, it's just really poor quality Stretch-O-Vision. I doubt you'll see much improvement with them before 2009.

    As far as MyNetwork TV (59), I honestly have no clue, since I haven't watched a single program on it since it started...

    Whoops! KCAL went "green" when DirecTV added it last month. When I dropped the new addition coloration, I forgot to change it back to HD Newscast blue. That will be corrected.

    The new addition to the Atlanta market is WATL - 36. Is this MPEG4?

    Very happy to see that all the "major" Philly locals are now in HD. Too bad they didn't have 17 in HD for New Year's day... I'm sure the Mummers would have looked great in HD.

    If they are doing this, why offer the SD locals? Offer the HD locals and it will appease both camps. WTVY (4) CBS and WDFX (34) Fox are both HD. WDHN (18) ABC does not broadcast in HD as of yet (atleast TW in Enterprise doesn't carry it) so they could in the interim broadcast the SD channel. A person who doesn't have an HD set would still be able to watch as the H20, HR20/21 provide the SD outputs. Not sure how they will do NBC - part of the market gets NBC from WSFA (12) Montgomery, parts get it from WJHG (7) out of Panama City and other parts get both. Neither market is carried by Directv.

    Maybe HD would take up too much bandwidth for such a small market?

    Just guessing here.....
