I have DirecTV HD (sammy receiver) and was also a b it disappointed with the content locally. I do enjoy the PBS feed and some of the KY3 feed when there is something good on.
As far as KOLR, they are bafoons. I spoke with David Smith (think that is his name) an engineer with them about my denial for a wavier I asked for. I told him I was not interested in local content but just the HD feed over satellite. He said he understood but could not help since their owners (NexStar Broadcasting and Mission Broadcasting) have no desire to put money into the system. I think he felt my pain becuase it sounded like he was stuck (and probably wished he worked for KY3 or PBS).
I called NexStar (www.nexstar.tv
) and they passed me onto some other office in PA. I havent called there yet.
Maybe if we get enough people to call we can get on their radar screen.
Also, a question.....IF all top 100 markets have to go to full digitial, that doesnt necessarily mean HD, right?
