Dish Network HD Local Channels Question

I just got Dish Network HD hooked up to my new LCD. Does anyone else in Topeka have high def and locals? It seems as though Dish does not offer locals in high definition. What I'm unclear about is whether or not I will get any of the network high def content.

I am not in Topeka, but I do have DISH and HD (and HD locals). You either have the HD channel, or you don't. It will be labeled as HD and will be listed in the program guide separately from the SD channel. So if your locals do not have that HD label, then you will not get the network programming in HD either.

I actually investigated Cox as well as DirecTV. In the end, Dish looked like the best for me. They still have the most HD channels. Hell, Cox doesn't even have NFL Network in HD.

I have DISH HD, my locals are Cleveland. I was told I had to get an off-air antenna if I wanted my locals in HD. Fuggers...

Through the Dish, or an antenna?

I bought a little antenna from Walmart (RCA, I think). Hooked it up to my dish receiver last night. Within minutes, I was receiving over the air digital broadcasts. Watched CSI:New York last night in HD with this. Dish Network told me that my locals don't offer HD to them and therefore they can't offer it to me. I think that is BS because I can pick up the network HD broadcast over the air.

I would guess that it is more the fact that the reps on the phone are taught scripted answers to tell customers. Either way, I still think Dish HD is better than DTV or Cox cable. And believe me when I tell you that I researched those other 2 options before signing up for Dish Network HD.

How many hours of SD and how many hours of HD can it hold?
