    There's a lot of channels most of us could do without, but since Scientology Network is paying Directv for carriage, it means your bill will be a tiny bit lower than it would be without that channel.

    i don't know when it was added, but now Dallas-Fort Worth's ION station KPXD channel 68 has launched a HD feed on DirecTV after being SD only for a very long time and that means all DFW stations on DirecTV's line up is now in HD as KPXD was the last channel to yet get it's HD feed up until recently.

    No Ion HD channel via DIRECTV? I'm getting Ion on 4 channels with DIRECTV. One is HD, the other 3 are SD.

    Portland, ME now has a mirror of 305, they don't get an actual local feed. The local channel 35 feed was dropped when Ion's purchase of the then-WPME was finalized at the end of March and it dropped the MyNetworkTV programming.

    Only NYC, Chicago, Philly, Atlanta, Boston, San Francisco, Dallas, Kansas City, Houston, Tampa, Memphis, Minneapolis, New Orleans, Portland OR, Greensboro and Anchorage actually get their local feeds, everyone else gets a mirror of channel 305 or 306.

    Right now only NYC, Atlanta, Dallas, Kansas City and Portland OR get their local feed in HD, while Houston's HD feed has been in test mode since the beginning of April.

    Norfolk gets a remap of channel 305, they do not get their local feed. Only the stations I listed actually get their local feeds, anyone else getting an Ion station in the local channels range is getting a remap of 305 or 306.
