I haven't noticed any activity this month. I was hoping to see them complete the additional HD content in my home market since I can't receive OTA because of distance.

Does anyone know anything at all about the LIL HD roll out?

Even better would be to know when I will get PBS HD from Albuquerque.

I'm sure new markets will continue to be added, but I don't have a schedule.

I started this thread: http://www.dbstalk.c...ad.php?t=153703 at the beginning of the month and was going to update it when we passed the two month mark with no new markets.

I haven't seen any new markets but I have seen existing 72.5 local markets going live on 99/103 in mpeg 4 for that migration. I believe there have also been some individual missing channels going live in some markets.
