    If you have an 811, 921, or 942, go to www.antennaweb.org. It will tell you what type of off air antenna you will need and what digital channels you can get. The only HD feed provided by dish is CBS-HD from NY or LA. You must have a dish pointed at 61.5 or 148 and usually have an HD Waver approved from you local CBS station if you don't live in a O&O market. Hope this helps

    You can't get ABC, NBC, or FOX in HD from Dish via satellite.

    To amplify -
    There are no provisions currently in effect for the "Distant Network Delivery of HDTV " at this point except what ever contracts currently exist.

    So, in short, if you can't receive HDTV via OTA, you probably won't be seeing it over DBS for awhile either.

    If you truely live "in the middle of nowhere" you would qualilfy for DNS (SD on all networks, plus HD for CBS). You indicate in your profile that you are in "WVA", care to give us more detail? Parts of WVA have OTA service (unless you are in a valley that blocks the signals).
