I just got my HDTV and now subscribe to Direct tv HDTV. I just don't understand why they offer HBO,Showtime,and ESPN in HD yet they don't offer local channels that broadcast in HD. ( I do have an antenna, so I get local channels in HD)I know that the MSG Network shows Met games in HD yet even though I have a HD reciever why doesn't Directtv broadcast in HD. Is it having to pay fees to the networks? Technology? I thought I ask here first before I contaccted Directtv.
