First, let me say that I don't give a rats ass how many times we've discussed the carriage of WB and UPN as DNS by DirecTV. I'm sure there are many DirecTV subscribers that don't have one or the other that would pay to get them. Forget whether they are "networks" or not. As for locals on DirecTV, my WB is cable-only and therefore wouldn't be carried, my UPN is very low power so it won't either. I have no problem with HD OTA at the moment, except that only two are broadcasting in HD, ABC and PBS. The others are just digital at the moment, CBS and Fox (with UPN on a sub channel). You'll notice the lack of NBC, its a retransmission from Elmira. So regardless of the excuses given, just allow me the opportunity to get a national feed for all "networks", especially for HD.
Sony SAT T60 (146 hrs), DSR6000, HTL-HD HD receiver, DVDR985 - DVD recorder, URC-6131 Universal Remote
DirecTV since '96, Dish Network for superstations (WB/UPN) only
Waivers for all four nets are in place.
I'm suspicious of newbies, but tolerant!
And, just because I have a bunch of posts doesn't mean I'm always right.
