The map has been updated. While doing it, I noticed that there are only three light blue areas (no locals-HD locals announced) waiting to go live. That leaves only thirteen markets unserved by DirecTV as well as one market in SD only (Zanesville, OH) and three areas where they receive SD locals but are outside of the HD spot beam.

I believe the Big 4 + PBS HD are available in Youngstown Oh.

Check zip code 44444 (Mahoning County)

Can any of you Fargonians verify that the networks are all broadcasting in DD 5.1?

The attachment is one tab (page) from the TPN Map Excel, which is updated at least weekly. You can see all the DMAs and the percentages in detail.

EDIT 2/28/13: PLEASE go to the TPN Map thread and use the most current DMA Listings and Data. Thanks!

Could someone confirm if local channels have gone live in Twin Falls, ID? The recent update for directv.com appears to have finally killed the old local channel lookup page but the guide, when set to Zip Code 83301 with Twin Falls chosen in the county list appears to give Twin Falls TV stations.

I wanted to suggest two tiny updates for the Greenville/Spartanburg/Anderson/Ashville market.

1. WHNS 21 offers a 16:9 SD newscast.
2. WYFF 4 offers a HD newscast.
