Local channels are available in my area (San Diego) from Directv, but does anyone know if Directv sends the local HDTV signal when available? Do you have to have to receive HD signals from local channels OTA now? It seems like Directv has channels reserved for the HD channels but is not broadcasting them now, so does anyone know if they have plans to send the HD signal anytime soon?


Thanks to anyone who can clear this up for me. I am desperate for more HD programming!

I'd like to know the source of this information. Most people here and at other forums say that DirecTV has almost maxed out their capacity.


The satellite providers will probably never have the locals in HD. There just isn't enough room.

DirectTV does not carry local HD channels as yet.


There is no indication whether they may or may not in the future, but given the number of stations involved and the amount of bandwidth required you would have to guess not for some time to come.
