Probably isn't the best forum for this, but since most of you are familiar names to me, I'd think someone would have an answer.
During hurricanes, blizzards, etc. DirecTV usually opens up a channel where they cycle through that local market's stations a couple hours at a time.
After the bombings Monday and the all-day lockdown of Boston yesterday, that would have been a great time to do this again.
I streamed WBZ-TV most of the day yesterday and their coverage was great. It beat most network coverage I saw.
I wish DirecTV had some sort of plicy they'd stick with so in the future, they'd put locals up more often when events warrant.
