Okay I called the VP of CS's office and spoke with Carrie. She had to look it up but what she said is that if you had DNS before November 1st 1999 then you can not keep it but if you got it after Nov. 1st 1999 then yes you could keep it and get the locals. Like I said dont be afraid to give them your account info, just make sure you tell them not to make any changes without your approval.
Im pretty sure she is wrong on the date thing as I think you had to have them before Nov.1 2004 to keep them but hey if she is right then I can keep mine when ever they finally get some locals here. Either way if you can get someone to do it now then you should consider jumping on it.
I do understand your concern though. I have thoght about it over and over and I just dont know if I will take my locals over DNS. I like being able to record off the west coast. Now if they start offering a HD DVR with like 4 tuners then I might reconsider. Thats really the main reason I would not want to part with them. Yes its nice for sports programming but I only have one HD DNS feed and the rest in SD except for CBS so not as nice. But when you have HD via OTA to the DVR anyways really no big deal.
If Congress dont get it right this time then I am gonna put up a huge Channel Master antenna to get locals from about 80 miles away and call it good. I might to that anyways but I just hate to spend the money now if Congress is gonna help me get the Tulsa locals I want anyways.
