The 17 markets served by CBS O&O stations are: Austin, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Los Angeles, Marquette, Miami, Minneapolis, New York, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Salt Lake City, San Francisco, and Green Bay.

If you are not in these markets, you may apply for waivers (if you think, you may qualify for it).

With E*, you can also receive CBS-HD if you live in a white area in a non-O&O market. Will D* have the same terms for their CBS and Fox feeds? If so, I would very strongly consider switching to D*.

I called E* customer service yesterday and the guy said you would have to pay for the HD programming ($10 amonth) to get CBS-HD. Was he wrong? Honestly I can't get any of this HD-satellite stuff straight. :(
