DirecTV may consider itself to be the leader in HD programming but ask anyone in Bakersfield, CA and they will tell that just isn't the case. Brighthouse, ATT U-Verse, and Dish all offer the locals in HD but DirecTV still does not. Nielson claims that there are 225,000 households here but the local population is well over 800,000. It would seem that compared to Juneau AK (DMA 207 with 25,000 households) this market would be attractive to DirecTV but apparently not. Juneau has locals in HD thru DirecTV. Anyone have any idea why Bakersfield still does not have locals in HD thru DirecTV?
