Does anyone have a link to the channels Dish network Offers Locally in High definition? No information on this was at Dish Network's website.I live in the Los Angeles area.
I own a 211 receiver and receive all my local HD channels through Dish network-not through an off air antenna.

I know I get CBS HD and NBC HD and ABCHD....but aren't I suppse to also get the WB in HD and and KcalLA in HD and KCOP and PBS in HD???
Does anyone have a link to exactly what Dish DOES offer in local HD channels? :confused:

Don't know about L.A. but WB and UPN are going to be history soon, to become something called "CW".
Idroped UPN and WB today when I ordered my Vip211. :hithere:

You give them an 80% grade? I would give them a 50% as here in the NYC DMA there are 16 locals that are all available in DT format but some I am not too interested in at this time anyway. I don't speak Spanish or Korean.. lol But I would imagine that some do.
There are also a couple of independent channels we have here that are in HD that would be nice. Especially the movies on WLNY 55.

Can anyone here confirm that 55 does the movies in widescreen HD? I am too far off to the north west of NYC and Long Island to get a digital signal of any kind off the air.

Have you tryed connecting HD oat antena to the 211. You might get the UPN, WB and KCET in HD that way.
