I live in the Grand Rapids, MI market area which currently doesn't have HD Locals by Dish. Direct TV has recently added HD locals for this area and I plan to switch to Direct in about 3-4 months after they have a chance to eliminate the bugs from the HR20 receiver. Does anyone think that Direct is now placing added pressure on Dish with the addition of local markets not currently carried by Dish. Or is Dish helpless because they don't have the necessay capacity on their Sats. I really like Dish so it makes me mad that they can't keep up with Direct on their services. I understand Direct is going to add two more Sats. this coming year and a lot more HD channels. That could be a killer to Dish.
