I am a resident of Massachusetts and a customer of Direct TV for many years. Early on I was told that the FCC regulated the locals stations and I would only be able to receive stations from Albany, NY.
About a year ago I had to upgrade to HD because they told us local stations could only be received through an HD receiver from the appropriate satellite. At that time we were receiving local Massachusetts stations from Springfield. Tonight we lost all local channels and when we spoke to the Direct TV rep and supervisor, we were told we needed another upgrade to receive local Albany,Ny stations.
Now why would we want to see local news from another state. This is so absurd....If you lived in NYC would you want to listen to the local news from Boston?Direct TV has manipulated us too many times and charged us more money for service that we do not want.
