DirecTV has started rolling out a few of the 25 markets it promised to add this year, bringing locals via MPEG-4 satellite to Madison, Reno, and Portland (Maine). You know the drill by now, new satellite and receiver are necessary, the new HR20 will work. Now the total number of markets with locals are up to 45. The stations added in each area are as follows:

  • Madison, Wisconsin
    • WISC/CBS, WMSN/FOX and WMTV/NBC
  • Reno, Nevada
    • KOLO/ABC, KTVN/CBS and KRXI/FOX
  • Portland, Maine
    • WMTW/ABC, WGME/CBS and WCSH/NBC
[Corrected swapped stations, thanks Tristan!]
