What do you mean by smaller DMAs? Reno, NV is DMA #110 and they are receiving all big four HD locals from DirecTV.

"Smaller" is probably not an adequate adjective. It boils down to $$ in their pocket, which is not necessary related to the physical size of the DMA. It may not even be the number of potential subs available within a DMA. It's the potential amount of profit $$ they will "net" in the end.

Tulsa locals were supposed to be added last quarter of 2006. Never happened. Was told by someone at the ceo email that they should be on in the first quarter of 2007. Well, that didnt happen either. I used to have D* a LONG time ago and after having E* I never thought I would think about switching, but if D* gets those locas put up here real soon, I just may have to switch back. :(

I think its time to switch.

I thought we were supposed to have HD Locals in Hartford by now. D* has 3 local HD channels, but my Charter cable has everything but ABC, including PBS. If Dish would get these, I would be able to dump charter.
