    Flint - Saginaw - Bay City DMA, WBSF 46.3 "Grit" channel?

    I can verify that these channels are now 1080i with Dolby Digital audio on DIRECTV. The difference is night and day. This is a 100% improvement over the 720p bit starved mess that they were before.

    DirecTV Tees Up Live 4K Will Offer Live UHD Broadcast From ‘Amen Corner’ at 2016 Masters Tourney

    I don't think that this is the case. I have had 4k since Jan. of 14, and I called in for a HR54, and they want $299 for it.

    Free E* for a Year from Local Phone Co.

    Got a call yesterday from TDS Telecom, my local phone company in Mid-Michigan. I already have DSL and Phone from them, and they were offering 1 free year of DishNetwork service! I am a happy D* sub, but this offer was tempting. I'm sure that this wasn't for HD service or for DVRs but it is an...

    LA HD locals - 3 LNB?

    Actually I think that the LA DNS feeds are still on the 119 or 110, but in MPEG4. They are also duplicated on D11. I don't know how much longer they will be on the legacy sats, maybe a couple more months.

    CBC on DirecTV

    I see CBC as more likely as a local-into-local offering. For example, CBET is included by AC Neilson as in the Detroit DMA. All local cable systems carry CBC. Even the podunk cable system where I live 80 miles away carries CBC. Why can't Dish or Direct provide legitamate LiL service including...

    ATSC frequencies

    While this statement is true, it has been proven that channels 2-6 are not well suited for ATSC transmission as they are too prone to interference. There are some that suggest that post-transition we could be dealing with a spectrum of 7-51.

    NFL HD vs. TNT Basketball

    Actually TNT looked especially bad last night. It wasn't just the MPEG2 artifacts. There was some major problems with TNT-HD. It actually looked better in SD.

    Can I get other locals that do feature HD? like the ABCe or NBCe ect..

    Wilson, Where exactly do you live. Almost all Mid-Michigan affiliates broadcast in HD (except CW and MY). They aren't carried by satellite yet, but can be received OTA.
