I have an antenna that can get those but I think it would be cool if DTV NOW got them especially when they add the cloud DVR. Thanks.

Or at the very least offer a national feed of all the networks, that way all customers can have access to network programs.

It's doubtful, they haven't added hardly any to the satellite, so it isn't a priority to them. You could see an exception or two happen, for example Youtube TV has Comet which is an OTA subchannel in some markets. I think Dish carries one or two nationally as well. Really just comes down to the agreements they work out, but when it comes to the subchannels they sure haven't shown a want to carry them.

Sorry I forgot to add if DTV NOW might have more bandwidth to add the local HD sub-channels than DTV would?

One issue is that the local stations want you t watch THEIR feed not a national one because of the advertising. If DTV and DISH are not willing to pay them then the stations would refer you do not get the national feed.
