The DirecTV HD DNS (DistantNetworkService) qualification site is fairly new. The results are based on a Longley-Rice prediction
of reception and are not always accurate. However, the results are what DirecTV must use to give you DNS-HD channels. If you have the locals options or
the DirecTV HD package, DirecTV will add the FOX & CBS New York channels at no additional monthly charge. But you have to call and request that they add them. WCBS-DT is on D* channel 80 and WNYW-DT (FOX) is on channel 88.
Call 800 DIRECTV and ask for an HD Specialist to add HD-DNS.
KFTA is on channel 24 and they are the same as KNWA 51 - it's similar to 40/29... KFTA's tower is in Winslow, according to the FCC
. I can receive both KFTA 24 and KNWA 51 analog stations, but not digital.
