    "Estrella TV is getting a nationwide berth on DirecTV starting tomorrow, according to parent company LBI Media. Estrella TV will launch on channel 442 across the country. Estrella TV has been on in local markets via broadcast affiliations with DirecTV, in Los Angeles, Dallas, Houston, Denver and Salt Lake City, but this launch in DirecTV's Hispanic packages is the first national placement, the broadcaster said."

    I think the release understates the OTA availability. We have an affiliate here in the SF Bay Area on channel 42 (albeit not owned and operated by Estrella). DTV upgraded it to HD about a year ago. Good news for people that don't have it. I assume this will only be available on the Spanish packages/en español add on? (I downgraded en español to the deportes pack when the latter became available.)
