Also have you tried putting up an Outdoor Antenna, Or Did Directv tell you this and you just believed them.
Another reason is quality. Most of my local HD OTA channels are multi-casting, which reduces their signal quality appreciably. If the MPEG-4 Directv broadcast of my local HDTV stations takes the HD feed before it is down-rezzed by the local affiliate to send OTA, (and I think this is the case most of the time), I'll gladly pay extra for the Directv HD locals.
