Your questions are really no longer pertinent as the four major networks and PBS are now available locally OTA and look better than D*. But, since you asked...
Directv provides no locals and has no plans to do so. Market is too small, something like 184 out of 212. Ballpark figure as I don't remember exactly.
The Broncos are blacked out on ST, as are the other games broadcasted locally, generally games in the AFC West. This shouldn't be a problem if the CBS affiliate gets it's antenna problems corrected. I cancelled ST last year after three or four years, as I was always watching the AFC West games on local broadcasts, HD or not. This year it shouldn't matter, as we will get them all in OTA HD.
