Thank you very much for your prompt response to my email however you failed to answer my original question. I understand that according to Nielson my zip code places me in the Washington, DC region for local channels. I was inquiring about when the "significantly viewed channels" from neighboring markets, Baltimore in my case, would be available.
According to the FCC document dated April 6, 2006 and located here:
(the main FCC page is here http://www.fcc.gov/mb/
and the above listed link can be found on the left-hand side of the page); the following stations are listed as significantly viewed stations in my area (Frederick County, Maryland):
WMAR-TV, 2, Baltimore
WBAL-TV, 11, Baltimore
WJZ-TV, 13, Baltimore
This list was generated by the FCC as part of the Implementation of the Satellite Home Viewer Extension and Reauthorization Act of 2004; Implementation of Section 340 of the Communications Act, MB Docket No. 05-49, Report and Order, 20 FCC Rcd 17278, 17333 and signed into law by George W. Bush.
I would like to know when these stations will be added to local stations for my area as the FCC has stated they can be. I know that you have rolled out significantly viewed channels in other markets and I wanted to know when they would be coming to my area. When this occurs I would love to become a DirecTV customer but as I stated in my earlier email, not being able to receive these stations is currently a deal-breaker for me.
Thanks for your assistance in this matter,
