    I’m in a bad location for open air antenna reception for local HD and Dish Network is not providing local HD yet. My wife is scratching at my neck to switch to Direct TV b/c they have this area in local HD. I don’t want to go through the trouble and payment of switching so how do I find out a time frame on when Dish Network might have local HD for Northern Kentucky (yall)? Thanks in advance for any info!

    Not recently John. But they tend to pop these things out on us without much warning, so keep an eye out.

    Have you heard of any new developments on adding local HD stations in other cities?
