    So I called up Directv and I was told to get the West coast affliate they had to get approval from the local fox.

    They turned me down.
    Has anyone ever got permission?
    Anything I can do?
    I guess if they cancel Arrested Development I won't have to watch them again

    Just keep trying, after about the 5th try they finally gave in to me. I think you can ask after a couple of months.

    Grant,

    I think in San Francisco, DirecTV is offering locals in local for the Big 4 networks. You should just need to ask for the MPEG-4 dish and receiver.

    I get the HD feeds from NBC CBS & ABC both over directv & over the air; Fox is the only one that is blocked over DSS.

    I must admit, I wish I could of deleted this thread last night.
    When the card came mixed with Xmas cards I was pissed.
    After I put down a very long post I went to the fox website and finally found their claim of over the air HDTV.

    I am under a 1/4 mile from their broadcast antenna and I could not get their broadcast. When I put my DSS into scan mode it would not even show up. So I started playing with my rotor and finally found Fox 15 degrees to the right (hmmmmm could be planned statement from their news department????) of all the other HD broadcasts.
    Talk about eating crow for Christmas
    I deleted most of the original rant ...hence my confession
