It is truely an AMAZING DAY in the State of Wisconsin!! Only 2 1/2 years after I was promised locals in Hi-Def they have finally Arrived!! Technology in the works. Know all we need is the networks to start broadcasting the programming in Hi-Def as well.

The next promise that was made to me by the retention department was an addittional 150 hi-def channel over the next 12 months. I wonder if I should hold my breath for that!

It's amazing how the small things in life excite us, Just like Christmas In May,lol.

LOL! When was this in 2003/4? I remember them planning ambitious additions, but ONLY AFTER the Spaceway system was deployed; which has just recently and partially happened, and only a few months behind thanks to the launch facility, and there are more birds coming, so it isn't even fully completed yet, but back on sched.

The next promise that was made to me by the retention department was an addittional 150 hi-def channel over the next 12 months. :)

As DirecTV has stated in numerous communications and publications, the 1500 LIL HD & 150 national HD is the TOTAL CAPACITY of the system, not how many channels you will have today, next month, or by the end of 2006.

Well, now I guess I have to get the new dish installed.

But I'm keeping my Roof top Antenna!

New install next week

I am moving into a new home next week friday and will have D* installed on that day. Does anyone live in Kewaskum, WI and receive HD OTA? I'm curious if it's easy. Kewaskum is 30 miles from Milwaukee

There are no digital stations predicted to serve this location.

I was hoping for first-hand experience

Actually WJJA-DT is now online as of a week or two ago. I have been trying to do rescans but their signal is so weak.

I have a question before I go further. Can I suggest another forum here in the Milwaukee area?

I suggest then that you go to MilwuakeeHDTV.org. There you will find all kinds of information on every tv station in the Miwlaukee area. Plus they have links to maps of station coverage.

I just talked to D* to get setup for the install of new equipment and they are telling me I have pay 99$ for the reciever swap. I have the old H10 which I paid 300$ for not even a year ago yet. What the hell is that? So in a years time I will have spent 400$ on a single reciever....
