Waiver problems, and locals question
Posted 17 March 2009 - 01:33 AM
Does anyone know if directv is planning on adding the wheeling wv market locals anytime this year. I'm hoping they do but i'm not counting on it. The cable is terrible in this area and i know a lot of people i can refer to directv as soon as the locals come online. I'm guessing i may have till wait till the next satellite is up and running? thanks for any info. I'm loving my directv hd except for the missing cbs part.

Are there two stations that could claim you and therefore it is one of them that is denying the waiver?

Yes there are 2 stations that they claim cover me. One is cbs out of clarksburg weston wv and the other one is wheeling wv wtrf. It doesn't say on directv distant locals page which station denied the waiver. I just assumed it was wtrf wheeling cbs. I wonder if there's some way i could find out?
You can call and ask them. They have told me in the past. I for one can tell you that you shoudl keep trying. There is no way I should of got my waivers granted. I live in a grade A signal area where I can get the stations I want with OTA but have still been granted all excpet for CBS. I have been a sub for almost 7 months now and I still resubmit everytime CBS denies me. I may feel different after the transition is complete and all affiliates meximize their signal but for now its not as good as I want. SD DNS feeds are better then the HD content I am getting with a OTA. Anyways make sure to request your own waivers and dont wait on D* to do it. They will tell you they can only do it like every 60-90 days. Thats BS. You can do it yourself from their web site anytime you want.
