While I agree with you that ATSC OTA blows everything else away, DirecTV 
locals aren't the worse.  Try watching local channels on Time Warner 
cable here.  Channels 2-13 are horrible.  Unfortunately, channel 4 and 
has always been the worst.  I can't miss my Alias.  I was very happy 
when the local ABC got their HDTV running well enough last year to watch 
it in HD.
