I will be getting D* hopefully in the next week pending approval from the base housing office (Yes, I have to go through an act of Congress to get satellite put up in my house.). I live in the Orlando market but I lived most of my life in Tampa and quite frankly the tv stations programming except for two stations and the newscasts here suck compared to Tampa. I know that Tampa's spot beam goes deep into the Orlando beam and vice versa with Orlando's going into Tampa, I want to know since I am going to be paying for both SD and HD locals what can I tell Directv about my zip code? Can I get off by saying my billing address is the same as my current one except the zip being my parents zip or I heard about a physical address where the satellite is for people who are seasonal. What is the best way of getting Tampa locals over Orlando locals?
