Yes, Mankato, MN, DMA 200, has just had their HD locals turned on!. They get the Mankato CBS affiliate (the only game in town) plus the Minneapolis ABC, NBC and FOX affiliates. This makes Mankato the 61st market to which D* has delivered HD locals.

Hmm, this seems odd. Mankato is a fairly small town - I believe it is smaller than La Crosse WI, where I live, and our locals aren't up yet...........

I think the answer for this is the only one they had to add was the Mankato channel, which was pretty easy I am sure, while the Mpls channels have been on the spot beam for some time. We can even get them in Wisconsin as we are covered by the spot beam, if we had a Twin Cities service address.

I think D*'s sort of drawing a demarcation line... here's the 200th market, it has HD, now we fill in the rest.

Unfortunately, the way the rules are written right now, no.
