With DirectTV''s annoucement on adding a total of 50 new markets by years end I was very disapointed that E* hasn't mentioned anything.

I have been a Dish subcriber for about two years and my only real wish is to have Toledo locals added. I have had zero luck with waivers or getting an acceptable picture OTA and it is getting harder to resist switching to cable now that they are finally rolling out HDTV in my area.

Gary-
I feel your pain! I've been a DirecTV subscriber for about 5 years in Richmond, VA, and always hoped for locals.

Today I got my wish as DirecTV started broadcasting the locals. I was up at 5 am to check it out. I felt like a kid on Christmas morning! :)

Steve,

I was really pulling for the merger exactly for this reason along with the hopes of having significantly more HD material.

Congrats on your locals, hopefully E* or D* come up with something in the near future cause I am going to crack pretty soon! :)
