D* launched the Seattle HD locals in June with only 2 of the big 4 local networks. They have not added either of the other 2 HD locals yet.

I'm curious, has D* added any of the missing HD locals in any of the other markets where they didn't launch with all of the big 4 HD networks?

I know D* is having problems negotiating with some of the affiliate ownership groups, but I wonder if they have put adding missing locals onto the back burner while they go about adding other new HD LiL markets. It seems that they get the marketing bang from the initial market announcement and the ability to claim they offer locals in the market (their HD market totals go up too), but there is relatively little value for them to add in the rest of the missing channels now.

Anyone seen more HD local channels added in later?

I believe there was one HD channel in Reno that was added after the fact. Outside of that, i've not had to update my Wall of Shame. I would say if you don't have it in HD, you ain't going to get it for a while.

2 out of 4 is still better than Dish Net though ;)
