Default $9.99+$4.99 and no tucson H.D.

They want me to pay $9.99 and $4.99 more for some channels I already have and they can't even give me local h.d. in the Tucson, Az market where the 2007 population in the metro region here is over one million people!
They have no idea when they will open up spot beams for this region and I am tired of all the b.s.excuses and waiting!

Of course you will keep us informed of your effective cancellation date with D*. You need to get away from D* before it has a negative effect on your physical and mental health. Life is too short to spend it pissing and moaning over TV programming. Get out and enjoy life more.

Not if he is out of the range of OTA broadcast.

Yes! That is correct and all they would let me have is the L.A. ABC HD feed and I have no idea who makes the decision! The network reps in the area?

p.s. I bet all who complained that I am whining already have their H.D. locals!
