DirecTV do not use MPEG2 so there are no FTA channels on DTV :(

DTV does not use DVB so none of the FTA receivers out there will receive it. You need a DTV receiver and even then there's nothing free on there anyways.

Star Choice in Canada is similar.

Bell ExpressVu uses the same hardware as Dish Network. A lot of the audio-only channels are free as is Nasa TV and GolTV (on Dish only.. for some reason it's encrypted on ExpressVu).

ExpressVu has a several Canadian radio stations that are free.

Only free video channels on ExpressVu are 4 or 5 versions of thier channel 198 (think Dish 101....a "how to" channel). There are 30 radio stations from Canada that are free too :)
