Antzona, so put up a big antenna and get the locals for free. Directv will only charge you for them.

OTA is unworkable for him as he posted in this thread back in late July;

You locals are active as of TODAY! Bakersfield and Monterrey both went live today.
[Disclaimer] The definition of "soon" is based solely on DirecTV's interpretation of the word, and all similarities with dictionary definitions of the word "soon" are purely coincidental and should not be interpreted as a time frame that will come to pass within a reasonable amount of time.

I can confirm that at long last Bakersfield folks who subscribe to DirecTV will be able to join the rest of the nation in watching the World Series in HD.

I love having local HD finally. It's nice to get to enjoy college football in crystal clear HD. I noticed that ch 23 would be in SD and I would go to another channel then go back to it and it would be back in HD. It only happened a few times. I'll enjoy watching SNF in style tonight. It almost takes the sting away of not having the P12N, but oh well, we must stop and appreciate the good things I'm our tv viewing, right?

The worst part about getting our LILHD during premier week was redoing all of my season passes from the OTA station to the new LIL stations after most of the shows had aired once. If only it had been a week earlier, but at least it is done and over with.
