Although you can't get these stations in HD through your SAT provider yet, you can get them with an antenna in your home. I live in Harlingen and I am using an HD - indoor antenna I purchased at Circuit City. I am having no problem pulling all local channels ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, UPN, Spanish Channels. . . .
However, because our Fox station (or pathetic excuse for one) does not broadcast in HD, we can't receive anything on Fox (i.e. NFL, NASCAR, 24, Prison Break...) in HD. Call them at 956-687-4848 to tell them how unsatisfied you are. Be polite, but get your point across. The bottom line is that our area is in a top 100 media market in the U.S., we should have FOX available in HD. We are only one of 8 or 9 stations in the top 100 markets who don't have FOX available in HD. Got to love the Rio Grande Valley.
Finally, getting an affiliate waiver will not help. I was granted a waiver to get another Fox affiliate's signal beamed to me. I chose NYC's station. However, FCC rules prevent an HD out of market signal from getting sent to you. So, even though you could get an out of market fox station, you couldn't get it in HD.
