I saw this pdf letter posted on our NBC affiliate's website. They are bickering with TWC over carriage disputes.

Anyway, the last sentence in this letter basically indicates that E* and D* will be adding their HD local channel in the next several weeks.

Great news, especially for our Fox affiliate (assuming they are included) that broadcasts their digital on channel 4 - a real PIA to receive.

:up

Now I wonder how long 'several weeks' is? :D

It states you can connect an antenna to the E* or D* box to receive HD.

Lexington KY HD Locals

Just upgraded a receiver on Friday and the installer told me that they had been told that HD locals would be activated by 08/01/08. I also had a new channel (75) appear in my guide for a few days (it is now gone) stating that HD local were being added in my area. Keep your fingers crossed. :p

HD locals in Lexington would be truly surprising, since there has been no yellow fuzz-ball on the expansion map for central KY on the charlie chats (in a while).

But if true, it would make my day.:)

Thanks for the encouragement anyway.

In what may be weird but true, the cited pdf letter from Ch. 18 says "without the need for an antenna..."

So we'll see.

P.S.: KyDave, thanks for the link.

Well I hope you guys get it! Hopefully someday Dish will hook Paducah, KY up with some HD Locals. Direct added them like a month before I went to Dish. Oh well hopefully I'll get something by the time the next season of The Office starts!

I hope just as much as anyone that Lexington,Ky gets locals in HD "soon". If we had HD locals then I would be happy with what I have, but, did you notice the date on the pdf ? Its dated "May of 2007". I believe those several weeks have passed. UGH! Come on Dish get Lexington Ky locals, PLEASE!
