When will Directv add Pittsburgh's local CW in HD? We're the only top 30 DMA that isn't carried. It's so frustrating as another fall season is upon us and no love for us Pittsburgher's.

Who can I contact at Directv to voice my opinion?

Amen! I've been saying the same thing for years now. Remember last fall when the CW fall season just started? The SD would be in letterbox format so that we at least got the full picture and not a cropped one. That did not last very long and now is back to it's ugly 4:3 SD crap! It is the sister station to CBS station KDKA which is a CBS O&O station so you would think they would be treated similar.

I agree with you 100%. Does anyone know how to contact Directv and see if this can be added? I know it probably do any good, but I'd least like to try.
