    Im not sure if i understand what you are asking, but yes it is $1.50 per HD distant.

    edit: and as VOS pointed out thats only one NY or one LA.

    I'm not quite sure what you mean, but:
    $1.50/month/channel of DNS is for only either LA or NY, while $2.25/month is for both SD feeds from LA & NY.

    ...and coat pulled over head. :D

    I know that 100% local carriage for either or both sat cos is a huge salvo fired across cable's bow, but of the locals I have that currently offer HD in my area, 2, neither is doing DD5.1 like the FOX- and CBS-HD feeds out of NYC I have waivers for through DIRECTV. I'm in an unserved market.

    Bottom line is, I had to go through a lot to deal with lack of locals, but I did deal with it and I'm happy now. There's a good chance with the coming changes, I might not be as happy

    If you have your locals in HD OTA and via sat, isnt that really the only reason? :D
