I'll have to look at cable if the OTA situation doesn't improve and Brighthouse offers all of the networks (of course it may be a while before all of the networks in our area are broadcasting HD--of course I'm referring to WAKA). I wish Brighthouse would have a "lifeline" for HD networks (like I have for the SD locals). If so I could keep my sat and just have cable for the locals (and cable modem). I'm pretty sure you will have to subscribe to their digital package to get the local HD. I guess dropping sat altogether would be an option if they Brightstar would carry the national HD channels. Things were looking up for a while for us, but like I said earlier, we appear to be regressing. It's hard to understand why other areas of the state have all the major networks (ABC. CBS and NBC--there is Fox's digital signal also) and the capital city area is still lagging way behind. The signals that we do have seem to be getting progressivly worse. I still considering getting a HD DirectvTivo but I'm a little hesitant if cable may be in my future. I see I'm beginning a rant so I'll
end here. It does look like DirectTv will begin offering HD locals at some point, but looking at the DirectTv site, it doesn't appear the Montgomery area will be high priority (the SD locals aren't even provided at this time by DirectTv so HD will be available via cable, probably, a long time before via satellite in this area-- things are different in the Mobile, Huntsville, B'ham areas).
