No, he is right. The local broadcast is not available on CI in that market, but if it is that market's RSN, the feed will be available locally in HD on D*.
Baseball example: In Minneapolis, I need to sub to MLB EI to get the HD games on channels 94-98 EXCEPT the Fox Sports Net North (Minnesota) Twins games in HD. I get those games in SD and HD because FSN North is my RSN and don't need the MLB EI package to get them. If the Twins are playing the Texas Rangers and the HD production on channel 95-98 is from Fox Southwest, I don't get that game regardless of whether I subscribe to MLB EI or not, it is blacked out. But the local market will get the HD game providing that it is that market's RSN that is providing the feed, regardless of whether you subscribe to MLB EI.
