    Can anyone give me an estimate as to when local channels (CBS, NBC, ABC, Fox etc0 will be aired by Directv in HD?
    I have heard all kinds of times, like June or July etc. Dish has already started airing since May 1, 2008. I am getting rather p.o'd at Directv for not being able to give out any info. :(

    There has been no announced date released by DIRECTV yet. I do know it will not be until at least D11 is turned on. But that should not be very far away.

    Is there any reason that you wouldn't just put up an antenna and receive the stations yourself?

    It is now Sept 25, 2008 and still no word when the local HD channels for Norfolk, Va area will be available. Does anyone have any idea as to the date this will start?
