Well, THATS stupid, whats the purpose of getting a SVd channel if you can't watch it in HD like the rest of your programming, thats like offering you the channel and then penalizing you for having it.
Exactly. Where I live, there is an ABC station (WTVD Durham) licensed to a city about 35 miles away. It comes in very well OTA, despite being VHF. There is another ABC station licensed to a city about 55 miles away (WXLV Winston-Salem). There is a third ABC affiliate about 75 miles north of me (WSET Lynchburg). Which two do you think I get on Directv? Somehow my "local" station is not the one I get all the time OTA. I do see blips of the other two, but not regularly, especially WSET. Same deal with NBC, as I posted the other day. It's just dumb.
