HD locals question
Posted 22 August 2004 - 07:20 AM
Newbie here. I have searched for awhile now but am unsure of a few things regarding channels. In a month or so I will be most likely moving to Bishop, CA (93514). I currently have DTV here in Iowa but am wondering about HD offereings I will receive in Bishop. When I type in my new zip code it tells me I will be able to get LA locals. By reading on the forums I learned that both NBC and CBS are O&O markets for the respective cities. Does one have to subscribe to the local channels in order to get the HD feeds for the national feeds or do they have to subscribe to just the HD package or both? I am also quite a ways away from LA, in fact a lot closer to San Francisco than LA. One last question, is it possible to get both the East Coast and West coast feeds for the HD channels?
I have also gone to the Directv eligiblity site and typed in the address and it showed me that I would be elegible for the National feeds for everything except CBS. Would this allow me to get the HD National feeds for everything except CBS? Sorry for all the questions but I am just trying to get my ducks in a row before moving. The CSR's at Directv are not much help on this issue.
If anyone can put some insight on my situation I would greatly appreciate the help in this matter.

You might try to see why you are not eligible for the CBS feed.

In my case I have waivers, so I get both east and west coast feeds.
If you qualify for distant networks you should get both in SD, but, without waivers, most likely only the west coast feed in HD.
