Locals testing always takes longer than national HD channel testing.

DirecTV has an SOP for LiL, and given the complexity of LiL testing compared to the national channels, it makes sense.

I figured there was a reason, just a little frustrated. I really thought they would be here by now, still a couple weeks until the new fall season

I'd be shocked if they weren't up for the start of the Fall season. I don't know, but I expect it'll be sometime this month.

So how long does it take to test local HD channels? Would it take over a month? I'm really hoping Bakersfield gets HD, it's been so long!
