Hmm.  I would have thought the DC and San Diego markets would have had them too since that Directv was using as the National feeds for East and West coasts.  Its killing me to have to watch Arrow and Supernatural in SD when I know is out there in HD somewhere.  they should use whatever market gives them an HD feed as a national feed.

They do have them in HD, however the HD versions are on spot beams while the SD versions are on the Conus beam.

As for why they're not on the national Conus beam as well, it's likely the bandwidth crunch until D14 goes live. Having the Big 4 in HD via DNS, in addition to any upcoming national HD channels (along with whatever bandwidth they might be reserving in the event they come to terms with channels like CSN Northwest, CSN Houston, Pac 12, etc) would have higher priority over having DNS versions of The CW and PBS in HD.
