as far as i'm aware you should still be able to get the sd-only locals as well as the hd ones and their sd counter-parts. is your guide set on "all HD"?
I set the guide to 'all HD', 'all Subs', and 'all Chan' and in no case do I even see the local PBS listed. I also tried manually changing to the 4 digit channel for the local PBS (from EKB channel chart) with no luck.puckwithahalo said:as far as i'm aware you should still be able to get the sd-only locals as well as the hd ones and their sd counter-parts. is your guide set on "all HD"?
I'm in the Boston, MA DMA, so I have a local PBS (WGBH) which is included in the Boston DMA locals, according to the dish site.James Long said:Agreed ... all the SD locals should be included with TurboHD. DISH would be violating the law if they did not offer all locals within the market (unless a local refused to allow their signal to be carried - PBS is defined as must carry so it should be there).
The only reason why PBS would not be included with locals is if you're in a market with no PBS station.
No, in most markets Dish does not. And in most markets they don't pick up The CW.CorpITGuy said:Does Dish normally pick up PBS in HD when it adds locals?
In my market, DirecTV began offering locals in HD (grrr, Dish Network) but does not carry PBS in HD.
No PBS or WWOR 9 (UPN affiliate) in HD in NY. They do have more SD locals then I will ever watch. But we do have WPIX-HD 11 which is the CW affiliate for NY.faiello said:They do not pick up PBS-HD, CW-HD, and UPN-HD which are availible in the Boston area
UPN and the WC merger to become the CW.faiello said:They do not pick up PBS-HD, CW-HD, and UPN-HD which are availible in the Boston area
Yep, and in most markets the station that didn't become The CW affiliate became the MyNetwork affiliate like WWOR in Boston.whatchel1 said:UPN and the WC merger to become the CW.
In my DMA there are four PBS stations in SD, but I don't know if they broadcast in HD.HDMe said:But if Dish includes SD locals, wouldn't it no longer be the only 100% HD package?
I know the HD Absolute package I'm grandfathered with does include some SD... but I really thought the TurboHD 100% HD package would not include any. IF they include none, then I say that's fine... but if they include any, then I agree you should get your SD locals to fill in the gaps... and Dish would have to stop saying "100% HD" in their commercials.
WWOR is in New York City buddy!phrelin said:Yep, and in most markets the station that didn't become The CW affiliate became the MyNetwork affiliate like WWOR in Boston.
i have turbo with sd channels....as stated above, they are local and shopping stuff....but i get pbs HD and CW HD fom my OTA....not through Dishreddice said:I get the CW channel 11 in HD but I don't get channel 9 or 13. I can pull in 9 and 11 over the air, 13 forget about it. I can at most only get 2 red bars with no picture. I wish Dish Network would carry 9 and 13 in HD.
