To expensive for me when I only would watch a few games.
You an always submit a waiver to them for it. Worst they can do is deny it. Do you get a local CBS already?

If you get locals, you're not going to get a waiver. In fact, DirecTV pretty much stopped processing waivers 6 or more month ago. Furthermore, those who DID have waivers, like me, lost the distant HD networks last month.

Thats funny. I just got a waiver approved a few days ago. I am waiting for 3 more to be approved. You can submitt them yourself from the website if you want. No I dont currently get locals from D* but it dont matter anyone can request for a waiver. Just doubtful one would be approved if you get locals. That being said I am supposedly in a grade A area for locals and I got one approved.

Not accurate... They have not stopped processing waviers... They have stopped offering blanket waviers in O & O, and areas where they have turned on LIL channels. Doesn't mean that if your station signs the wavier you can't get it, but its now more up to you and your station, not Directv...

joshjr, Try channel 390. It's MPEG4 and the picture quality should be better. And if you have a DVR, recording shows on MPEG4 ch 390 will take up a lot less space on the hard drive than MPEG2 ch 80.
390 is not on. I was not watching anything on 80. I just thought others might want to know. I am sure there is someone out there that wants to watch CBS tonight. I myself am watching the Cowboys game.
