DMA 157 has had their HD locals moved up to October.
Thanks for catching that! I updated the announced markets list when they bumped the date up, but apparently forgot to update some of the cities in the lists. One of the hardest things was keeping up with all of the changes when I was first creating the lists. It has been corrected, along with Terre Haute, Clarksburg, and Wheeling where I also made the the same mistake.
Nice work. I do love how the DirecTV locals data is hosted on comcast.net.
I had considered for a while purchasing web space to host things, but in the end I couldn't pass on making Comcast host the DirecTV lists.
Thanks for taking the time to make this detailed map and to share it with everyone.
I do have some info to provide about the Salt Lake DMA. The Salt Lake DMA is pretty big and covers all of Utah, parts of Nevada, parts of Idaho, and parts of Wyoming.
The Directv SD locals spot beam for Salt Lake coverage covers the entire DMA, including the parts as far west as Carlin, Nevada, parts of Southern Idaho, and parts of western Wyoming.
The Directv HD locals for Salt Lake coverage is greatly limited. The HD locals spot beam covers mainly the northern part of Utah only. Your map shows that all of Utah is covered. Basically everything south of Filmore, UT 84631 does not have Directv HD locals. Only SD locals are available.
The directv website shows as a new customer with a UTAH zip will get locals in HD. But, if you use the directv.com/locals to check zip, it will tell you if HD locals are actually available.
When I have called Directv to inquire about this, they apologize about the situation, and have no details as to when the Directv HD locals for Salt Lake will be available to the rest of the Salt Lake DMA.
Here is a short list of Salt Lake DMA where SD locals are available, but HD locals are not.
Beaver, UT 84713
Filmore, UT 84631
Monticello, UT 84535
St George, UT 84770
Wendover, UT 84083
Carlin, NV 89822
Elko, NV 89801
Ely, NV 89301
Strangely enough, here is an example of cities outside the state of UTAH that have Directv HD locals for Salt Lake.
Evanston, WY 82931
Preston, ID 84263
Hope this helps.
Thanks again for all your efforts
I am making an effort to make the map as accurate as possible, but it takes a while looking up all of the fringe zip codes to determine where things are different. I have already begun chipping away at some of the other markets that don't have 100% coverage (see the SD-only areas of the Albuquerque and Wichita markets for instance). It'll still be a while before I get through all of them. Thanks for Salt Lake City DMA info. That will certainly help out once I get to that market.
