I was visiting Directv's website and noticed that Channel 69 is listed as WUPA which I believe is an Altanta CW.:) I wonder how long before the channel becomes active.

Thanks.

Our local CW will not let us get the national feed so not a big deal for us. I say screw CW.

I have the same channel in my online guide...I think it's a glitch on D*'s end.

The channel has long been active as an Atlanta DMA HD local.

Hmmm, I get the Baltimore CW as a DNS because we don't have an OTA CW. So the question I have is will I get this HD CW?

I doubt this channel is for HD DNS but rather a mistake in the online guide and just local for the folks in Atlanta.

For the last year or so... whenever I check my online programming guide, Atlanta SD-LIL shows up in the guide. Last week I checked the online guide, and WUPA (SD) is the only Atlanta SD-LIL channel showing up (I don't have SD-LIL)...

I'm hoping that DirecTV will add CW HD-DNS though as I'd really like it for this Fall...

The HD locals and RSN list http://www.dbstalk.c...V_lil_list.html shows the Atlanta ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox and CW stations as HD (spotbeam LiL, of course).

Supernatural was good and the new Reaper looks good.
