    ours went to me-tv and antenna tv (I think). NBC dumped weather plus when they bought the weather channel. I guess they don't like live weather coverage and are more interested in showing shows about panning for diamonds or making artificial reefs or hauling coal or whatever they show now.

    there are a lot of people who can't get internet or digital cable. There are some who can't get cable at all. Especially when you get out in the country and there are only a few houses around. Either the cable company doesn't see it feasible to offer internet or digital cable or they don't see it feasible to offer service at all. That far out you might as well forget dsl too as that is too expensive.

    btw, my local on the 8s is the national forecast. I miss the local on the 8s based on directv active but I guess that is gone for good now.

    My Local on the 8 does the National as well, it bounces around the country giving you a large area at a time ......
    Hardly Local.
