Normally, Direct TV advertising has been honest and accurate. This new ad, however, touting 1500 new HD channels I suspect is misleading. At present, local channels on Direct TV are not HD in most or all areas. Channel 80 (which Direct TV says is a trial for local HD) in our Wisconsin area is a New York CBS station that broadcasts widescreen HD format at the same time our local CBS stations do--the same HD programs. Quality seems equal to OTA local channels--not better. Does the "added 1500 channels" mean local HD? It would great if they add more HD channels, but local HD for those of us with antennas won't add anything except a fee for something we already have for no fee. Do any of you know of plans for added HD channels on Direct TV not including local?
