    Locals testing always takes longer than national HD channel testing.

    DirecTV has an SOP for LiL, and given the complexity of LiL testing compared to the national channels, it makes sense.

    I figured there was a reason, just a little frustrated. I really thought they would be here by now, still a couple weeks until the new fall season

    I'd be shocked if they weren't up for the start of the Fall season. I don't know, but I expect it'll be sometime this month.

    I saw this topic bumped and I got excited!

    Then I read it and became a sad panda.

    So how long does it take to test local HD channels? Would it take over a month? I'm really hoping Bakersfield gets HD, it's been so long!

    Wait a minute...

    Are you saying they're live?!

    ... or are you talking about on a mobile app or online program guide?!
