I thought we were slated for April 06. Does anyone know if we have been pushed back, and if so when are we suppose to get the HD Locals. I did see the H-20 at a local Best Buy $99.00 with a $99.00 mail-in Rebate.
Here is one of the many, many threads with the HD-LIL / MPEG4 list. It contains all the original DirecTV planned rollout dates for the current group of cities (not the entire 210 DMA list). The free after rebate should be receiver only, correct? I would call to see what deal you could get for the receiver, dish and install. You will need the new 5LNB dish as well, if you do not have it now. Note that some DMAs may have "NOT" next to certain affiliates that will not come online at the same time as the others.
