    I hope it's true ... for us guys in the sticks, we've been waiting for some time to get something more than CBS in HD.

    I get the Seattle locals OTA, and it's a real treat to watch prime time shows in HD. Worth the wait. Now if E* can only get the 622 runnin' right . . .

    O.K. I have been installing dishes (Dish Network, DTV, C-Band, Star Band, Wildblue...) for over 6 years now but I am new to this forum. What does E* mean?

    Thanks,
    Brad

    Brad, it all started a long long time ago when there was a DBS company called PRIMESTAR and it got short handed to P*. Then along came Direct TV or D and then D bought out P*and became D* and so it went.

    WOW ...it would be interesting to see if Seattle gets HD Locals before San Francisco, the second largest city on the west coast.

    Now that Echo 10 actually lives and breathes makes it easier to add HD LIL. I suspect early June is a good time frame still, however there have been surprises before.
