Default Free upgrade to HD receiver

We will soon be changing how we broadcast local channels in your zip code. This may require a free upgrade to your DIRECTV equipment. To find out if you qualify for an upgrade, call 1-888-763-7772. Mention "Free 72 Local Swap" at the voice prompt.
. It seems that D* will no longer carry the local SD signals to their customers. Apparently the feds require that D* provides an HD box at no cost nor increase in montly bill. Because I already have HD equipment there will be no changes for me.

That is NOT a Federal requirement but is a way for DirecTV to get more money from it's non HD customers...of course the equipment will be free but the subscription to HD service is not.

I believe the local channels will be in HD at no additional cost.
