    The thing that stinks about Comcast is that to have their high speed internet as a customer is $43 a month, but for a non-customer is $57. So basically I subscribe to basic cable for $11 a month since I might as well get something for my money.

    On the otherhand, cable internet is great.

    They are on the same channel as you get them OTA (Over The Air). So for example, if your NBC is on channel 2, then on your DirecTV receiver, you would tune to channel 2.

    Actually, it looks like the UPN station (WLYH, channel 15) is missing. Wonder why ...

    Yea right

    They said they launched all the locals in Omaha, Ne. its on there web site.

    They never turned on our Iowa PBS 32 and Ne PBS often says no signal.

    They are only launch some of our locals for some of the markets.
