Just not having to deal with OTA for HD will be nice.

Did the Lansing locals recently switch to a different satellite? Normally I don't get a signal on the 119 sat because of a tree. The signal is still at zero but I am getting my locals now.

Got relatives in Lansing with whole home hr34 setup but no local HDTV. Any suggestions on how to get d to send them the am21 no charge? They feel they are paying for HDTV and not getting what they watch most in HDTV.

Pushed to November.

Two other markets will launch later in October. Lansing early November unless something technical comes up.

Any info as to why it was pushed back? I guess waiting another month isn't too bad, but I'm really getting impatient LOL.

After 5+ years of waiting I guess another few weeks won't hurt.

I too am waiting on ICS for my Thunderbolt. HTC has likely delivered the update to Verizon but Verizon seems to be in no hurry to release it. So yeah...
