    Great additions. The only thing we are missing is PBS HD.

    I would've loved to have JZY and AXN during college hoops season for games in HD, but it's good to have them now. At least we'll get SEC football games in HD on AXN in the fall.

    Outside of...
    The picture quality is great on these additions. I noticed they were added last week. It would be great if we were able to receive the PBS signal from Directv in HD. We are using a omnidirectional antenna purchased from Radio Shack which I have mounted in the attic for the Greensboro market since my wife has relatives that live there. Hopfully soon, all the DMA's will have access to HD programming. It's funny how you become addicted to an HD picture and wonder how you ever got by with SD!

    Yeah, but see, THIS is why we need HD locals for Columbia. Like any good, solid Clemson family man I'm taking my wife and kids up to Clemson tomorrow to enjoy some spring football and baseball and mainly enjoy the campus. I'm taking my RV with me, and I have my setup all ready for HD viewing. But since WSPA's tower went down and they have a temporary one up, I'll never be able to get the Masters in HD while I am there. If I had HD locals, things like this would not be an issue.

    :D

    No big deal as I dropped my LIL package some 12 months ago. When I got my new HD TV in Sept 2007 I decided just for the heck to try my old antenna and see if I could pick up any of the digital signals. Surprise, surprise. I was able to pick up all of the local stations. I am about 34 miles from the 2 broadcast towers. I ran an A/B comparison for some 4 months and decided that the OTA digital had better picture quality that what DirecTV was sending as HD LIL. I have not regretted dropping my LIL form DirecTV.

    Finally Smallville in HD! I'm to far away to pick up that station over the air.

    Yes please!!

    The only issue I have with DirecTV is that we don't get the locals in HD.
