They might have picked up an exclusive deal for HD rights outside of Atlanta. I really have no idea. I solved my problem by "moving" to the Atlanta DMA. I get the same signal strength as I did for Knoxville locals, which is a 95. Everything is peachy now.

from wikipedia article on tbs television


In late June 2007, Turner Broadcasting announced that WTBS would change call letters and become WPCH-TV, and would be branded as Peachtree TV. According to Turner, the new channel 17 would offer sitcoms and movies geared specifically toward an Atlanta audience. The new station would also broadcast 45 Atlanta Braves baseball games next season. The change occurred on October 1. In addition, the channel 17 change allowed Atlanta cable and satellite television viewers, for the first time since the early 1980s, to receive the national TBS signal as of that date.[3] Most cable and satellite companies previously carried WTBS's local Atlanta signal instead of the national TBS channel. Following the change, cable systems in Canada were legally required to continue carrying the local Peachtree TV signal, instead of switching to the national TBS feed.[4]

Liberty is a strange corporation. They own 100% of the Braves who play on Peachtree Tv which is owned by Time Warner which Liberty has a minority interest in. They are carried by Directv which is owned by you guessed right Liberty Media. Sure seems like they would work hard to make the Braves broadcast in sterling HD.

Not only that, Liberty removed XM Radio from Directv. Guess who owns stock in XM Radio, Liberty Media. Strange how they do business.

Liberty does not own DirecTV. John Malone owned a significant stake until recently. No Liberty representatives have a seat on DirecTV's board and D* is an independent company not owned by any media giant.

Is it possible D* is blacking out the channel in upstate SC? I used to get it but now all I get is the DirecTV logo. I get the SD feed on CSS (Charter cable), but absolutely nothing from the 4 or 5 channels listed by DirecTV over this past weekend. Very frustrating as I used to get Peachtree (albeit lame SD).

Wish I could have seen it. I was stuck watching the Giants broadcast since I'm in the SF Bay Area. Gotta love blackout rules.
