I have been waiting on them fro the past year. I live in Asheville NC and have an indoor HD antenna so I pull in WLOS (ABC) and FOX with no problems. I also have "moved" and I get the Atlanta locals in HD as well and they all show up in the guide just fine.

I hope they come soon though!

They should show up fine. I'm not in this circumstance, but I know that there are several people who have reported getting all the digital channels from 3 DMAs up in the North East. So you should be fine.

These channels were supposed to go live in 2006 (actually they still are!) but in the meantime, we did just get guide info for the OTA sub-channels, so maybe that's a step in the right direction.

Here was my letter to the CEO, what little good that will do:

This is Dennis Justice of Fletcher, North Carolina.

I am contacting you to advise you that I am very strongly considering canceling your service.

I have been a customer for four years, and on the most part, been pretty satisfied.

However, I had went through a very serious hassle just to get the CBSHD channel on my Dish Network, and had to pay the regular HD package price, just to get CBSHD channel. After that channel was rescinded, I had no ability to pick up any channel, and before the suggestion is made, NO antenna will work in this mountainous area to pick that channel up.

The Super Bowl party I was planning for my family might seem trivial to you, but it was a very big deal to me.

I am even more disappointed in reading through www.Satelliteguys.us and other sources including your website of NO plans to add HD locals to the Greenville-Spartanburg-Asheville area. Your website in very inadequate for any kind of news for HD locals. WB and UPN HD is NOT acceptable. I NEED my MAJOR networks in HD.

I have checked Directv's website and they announced they are adding HD locals, and dramatically increasing HD content. Calling them, they are adding them mid-February:

http://www.directv.com/DTVAPP/packProg/channelChart2.jsp?assetId=1100086

I am very willing to pay $200 for two HD receivers, and the first month up front, to get my HD locals. Any obligation I have with Dish Network ends on February 16 and now that my bill is paid, I can cancel if I wish.

An offer for rabbit ears simply won't be acceptable.

I need some justifiable reason NOT to leave Dish Network.

Thank you.

Where on the guide are the sub channels?

If you receive the OTA locals via antenna, they have always shown 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, etc. for all the stations that you picked up. However, before the only thing that showed in the guide was "Digital Programming" for any of the sub-channels other than the "x.1" main channel. Now, after the latest update last week, we get program data for all of the sub-channels (except for UNC-TV programming obviously.)

Oh I thought you were refering to Dish provided programming.

I too live in fletcher. Think we are kind of limited as the cable company (mediacom for Henderson County) doesnt give any local hd channels. If you are buncombe county, get charter they can give you cbs, fox and nbc in hd. You can pick up wlos very easily with an indoor antenna.
