    I was talking with a DirecTV person last night and asked about the PBS situation when the local PBS stations arrive. He said that they just got an internal memo that stated the national feed of PBS will disappear off your guide if you subscribe to local-into-local that includes a local PBS. You may request a waiver (from I guess the local PBS station) to allow you to get national PBS, but he said that the local PBS has the rights to the local area over the national feed.

    To me, that is good news. I like chicago's local pbs much better than the national feed.
