Hello All

any place I can point a dish and get the super bowl? I have Direct TV and they won't let me have CBS. I also have a BUD and Prime star. Thanks

why won't DirecTV "let you have CBS"? I notice you're in Ohio. So am I and I get CBS just fine through DirecTV.

If it's for a 1 day shot though, you might want to look into an OTA antenna for free HD locals.

I believe that all counties of Ohio have locals, except those "served" by the Wheeling market, where the entire market is well covered by OTA signals.

In any event, the last 4 years in a row, DirecTV has quietly unblocked the distants for the appropriate network. It keeps their CSRs from being bombarded by calls from people experiences outages for this or that reason. In fact, most major sports events have unblocked distants.

What does this mean? The CBSeHD feed will be open for everyone? If so, I'd love D* forever, because my local affiliate has no DD.

It's been done before, no word for sure, but it doesn't hurt to check closer to game time.

IF so, please post it so others can take advantage of it as well.

btw, this should be in the 380-399 range, (too lazy to look up the actual CBS feed numbers.)
