I contacted DirecTV earlier this week re: HD locals... The reply I got was:
Given that, I don't think your ball is going to roll very far.
Go figure. I ask a question on Tuesday, get a reply on Wednesday, and post Friday... not knowing there was a press release at CES on Thursday.
See the DirecTV site, Headlines dated 01-08-2004.
The important parts:
The CBS-HD programming, from WCBS in New York and KCBS in Los Angeles, will be available to eligible DIRECTV customers in markets where CBS owns and operates stations, including Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Boston, Dallas, Detroit, Minneapolis, Miami, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore, Salt Lake City, Austin, Texas, and Green Bay, Wis. Similarly, FOX programming is also expected to be offered to customers in FOX O&O markets.
Customers who subscribe to the DIRECTV local channels package in CBS and/or FOX O&O markets will receive this programming free of charge.
