    why are there so many problems with channels that can be had for free over the air?

    Insiders are saying that DirecTVs HD broadcast signal is having difficulty handling the 80s backdrops on their newscast.

    Same thing with WHBF 4 (CBS) in the Quad Cities. The local news is worthless, but the CBS programming - guess I'm going to have to reprogram the DVR to use the antenna again...
