    Terrain has alot to do with reasons people can't get OTA, Not Coverage.
    There are Millions that can't get OTA if they wanted too.
    If you have locals channels on Dish Network, then PBS plays the same programming as Sprout, Where do we all think it came from.

    Where I live I am 70+ miles to the transmitters so I don't have an amplified antenna and rotor

    up anymore (that looks like a battleship) over my house.I receive all programming by

    satellite.

    Also I sleep alot better when those 60 m.p.h. winds come through.

    Hemi,

    While that is true most local market HD packs do not include the Local PBS in HD, and no local market packages include the PBS sub-channels.

    So what, Sprout isn't carried in HD anywhere.
    You Have a Much better chance of PBS in HD. And Who cares if Clifford,Sesame Street,Dragon tales,Barney are in HD.

    Really Com 'on now.
    And As far as your last Statement, thats totally false, PBS is Available to everyone. Dish Will offer it A la Carte, if you don't have it with your locals
    .

    I don't Know of any City that doesn't have PBS.
    As far as Subschannels No Provider Carrys all the PBS subschannels.

    Sorry Hemi, PBS does not play the same programming as Sprout, there is some overlap in shows, yes, but Sprout has different and more shows, and shows kids programming all day and night.

    Not really, that's kind of like saying A&E is a substitute for Discovery, completely different shows/characters/programming.



    If you have young kids you'd REALLY understand.
