    I believe it is if you have a local UPN broadcast station and you subscribe to local channels via DirecTV. Otherwise, I don't think so.

    Only if you live in the NYC metro area or (apparently in Cleveland?) -- these are the areas that get a UPN station from DirecTV if they subscribe to local channel access. If you go to your local Radioshack, they should have a book of all the local-to-local channels that DirecTV offers,
    This will all change after Jan 1st. That is when the must carry provision of the home satellite act goes into effect. Basicially, what that law says, is that if a satellite provider opts to provide local channels in a TV market, then they have to provide all of the local channels in that market. However, the channel must request being added to the lineup, and provide the satellite provider with a "proper" signal. There are going to be some glitches, but DirecTV is launching another satellite in Oct or Nov, to accomidate this on their system. I'm not quite sure what dish network is doing, but they should be following suit, Provided that everything works well... everybody should be golden by Jan 1st...
    However, I'm very glad that by living near NY, I get my UPN and WB on my DircTV, because all of the antennas in the city were on the WTC, and I don't get any channels OTA except CBS.
    Peace out,
    Jim

    I live right near Detroit, MI and no UPN or WB on my DirecTV
    although my local cable has them both but with crappy quality. I hope DirecTV adds these soon so I can have a better source to view these shows on.

    You were right, Cleveland thankfully has the UPN on the dish, but sadly not WB (though I only need for Angel now). Can't wait until Jan, then. We have basic cable in the bedroom as alternate to Directv in living room. Have to watch WB shows in there (also got so when weather is bad, can get info on it, as the Dishes crap out with heavy cloud cover). Man, cable sucks.

    I did some research on this and found the following links which list all the channels/stations being carried by Directv by individual satellite, 101, 110, and 119. Some of the channels are broadcast for test purposes only and are not available yet, but hopefully will sometime soon, and give you an idea of what new channels may be coming in the future. For those living in Southern California like myself, it's time to break out the rabbit ears for the time being. Hard to believe.

    Also, there is a discussionn room at DBSFORUMS.COM that often times has news and discussions on this subject. (It's where I found out about lyngsat)
