    Re: DirecTV HD locals- Des Moines Area

    I spoke with Direct TV on Sunday and was told they did not have a timetable for the launch of HD Locals.

    Re: DirecTV HD locals- Des Moines Area

    Someone at Ch5 posted on dbstalk and agreed with the 19th date, but again, that is just an internet message board.

    Re: DirecTV HD locals- Des Moines Area

    Yesterday, Marty and Miller were talking about it being the 19th also. I'm guessing they read that on here though.

    I was told in about a month...

    That was 1.5 years ago. I'll believe it when I see it.

    Re: DirecTV HD locals- Des Moines Area

    DirecTV confirms the 19th on their Twitter stream:

    Twitter / DIRECTV: We're adding 6 new HD loca ...


    I believed in Gene Chizik and all I got was this lousy limited-edition commemorative coin.

    Re: DirecTV HD locals- Des Moines Area

    Satracer is a Directv employee, so he generally knows his stuff on DBStalk...My market was originally in October, then pushed to December, and then went live a couple of weeks ago by surprise, so it may not be set in stone quite yet, but I would say it looks good for DSM at this point!

    Re: DirecTV HD locals- Des Moines Area

    My grandparents just upgraded their DTV receiver to a DVR and it didn't come with an place to hook up a OTH antenna. I talked to the people at DTV and they advised that the HD locals weren't going to be available in the DSM market and that my grandparents had to buy a $50 adapter to hook up an OTH antenna. That was LAST WEEK.
