it's been awhile since I posted here. Glad to see more and more people are getting into the HD world.
About DirecTV getting the Sioux City local channels, I can tell you that I just talked with DirecTV last week and I was told that "Sioux City is not on the radar" for adding locals anytime soon. She was looking at the schedule of local deployments, and Sioux City was not on the calendar at least through the end of the year. That's a bummer, because I understand that when they do launch local channels in Sioux City, it will probably be our HD signal that they'll pick up.
One more note, in response to the question about the CW, there is NOT HD programming yet available on the CW. When they make it available, we'll look into what it would take for us to pass it through. Unfortunately, I don't think technology has caught up enough to allow us to pass through both our HD from NBC and a new HD stream from CW at the same time. So, don't hold your breath waiting for CW in HD.
