HD locals in Harrisburg

Looks like they changed the date (again) as to when we can receive local HD via satellite in Harrisburg. They first announced that it would occur in the 4th quarter of this year. Here is the email I received earlier today from directv...

Thanks for asking about HD programming. We will start broadcasting local HD programming in Harrisburg, PA in late February of next year. I know that HD programming is important to you and DIRECTV is committed to offering the best possible HD experience to you. In recent months, we have launched the first two of four satellites that will allow us to greatly expand our HD local channel offerings.

The two new satellites have allowed us to begin offering HD local channels in several cities, with many more to come later this year. Because our satellite capacity is still limited, we intend to focus on getting HD feeds of ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC up in as many cities as possible. Next year, when the other two satellites become available, we will be able to begin providing even more channels (including CW, where available) in existing HD local markets, as well as adding new HD markets and more national HD programming.
