My wish list:
2. Have the ability to add significantly viewed neighboring DMAs (in my case, it's < 10 miles away). I'd even pay for it.
3. Have a way to view/update all your WWDVR "to do lists" and season passes from a computer or tablet.
4. I'll second maartena's news wish.
5. Have a really good weather radar app. The one on the "Active" channel is horrible.
Otherwise, I'm really happy with the service.
#2 is not anything that DirecTV can control. You'd have to petition the FCC to get that taken care of.
Actually, the "significantly viewed" law has been in place for some time, for both cable and satellite. Cable companies follow it regularly by including significantly-viewed adjacent-market stations in their channel lineups, while satellite companies mostly ignore it, keeping strictly to single-DMA channel lineups, putting them at a competitive disadvantage in many areas.http://hraunfoss.fcc...FCC-05-24A1.pdf
(see pages 6-13)http://transition.fc...tions010213.pdf
In the second document, if you check out the listings in the following counties, you'll see examples of cable-provided station offerings from adjacent markets, all in highly-populated areas located between/around large cities:
Anne Arundel, Carroll, Cecil, Dorchester, Frederick, Howard, Kent, Talbot, Wicomico and other counties in Maryland;
Barnstable, Bristol, Franklin and other counties in Massachusetts;
Hunterdon, Mercer and Warren counties in New Jersey.
Satellite companies could easily include these significantly-viewed stations by zip code, but they choose to not do it.
