    The games that are shown by the local affilates are blacked out on the Season Ticket.

    Yep, disappointing for sure. Now that they announced that the next Survivor will be in HD I've started looking for other ways to get OTA. I bought a tuner card for my PC which is upstairs so I can get my antenna higher up in my house. Works pretty good luckily.

    Let me know if you get an email for Tim Perry. I'll be glad to send him an email on this topic.

    I was really hoping when D11 goes live that the extra HD capacity would lead to more local HD channels. But, as per my previous post, looks like Portland got skipped over. Football season starts soon, and I would really love to have CBS in HD for that.

    Satelliteracer, you better not be messing with us! :)

    I was looking at the KSN thread but this has gone on forever and I just can't believe it until I see it.

    From what I've been told by KSN's station manager I think we are good. The question is, I wonder exactly when they will be turned on... Hopefully before the opening ceremony starts.

    If it happens tomorrow they will be turned on at 6am pacific.

    Luckily for us Portland folks, KOIN is CBS and not NBC which we already have in HD. So this won't effect the Olympics.

    Sweet. The AM21 works well enough but life would definitely be simpler with out it. Now all we need as a baseball bat for Comcast Sports NW and I'll actually be able to recommend DirecTV with out a couple footnotes.

    Wow! That will make Milwaukee the largest market missing a local channel in HD.

    Yup, I hear about it often. I lived there for 10 years, went to school there, my son was born there, many friends with D* there. Negotiations ongoing.

    I couldn't believe this. It's almost too good to be true. In time for PGA Championship this weekend. While we are at it, where is the Comcast Sportsnet?
