how to get PBS?

If your true locals are on a national beam, you can only have either New York or Los Angeles. The networks provided for these two cities on national beams are only the four majors, and in the case of Los Angeles, the WB.
Since you are technically receiving service from New York, the national PBS feed would be blacked out, as you are receiving a local PBS. The national PBS feed is for those without a local PBS on satellite. You would then have to "move" to a market where DirecTV doesn't offer a local PBS available on satellite (for DirecTV, examples are Harrisburg, Green Bay or Toledo), or where DirecTV does not offer local channels (like Utica, Watertown, Bangor, and Presque Isle).

Or, get StarChoice or Bell Expressvu. They carry PBS on their systems.
The whole point of using DirecTV is to avoid the Canadian channels and content restrictions.
