OMW hears that all of the "Big Four" network affiliates are now available in high-definition to Cleveland market DirecTV subscribers using the HD "Local-into-Local" service offered by the satellite service.

We hear that Raycom Media CBS affiliate WOIO/19's HD feed started showing up for local DirecTV HD LIL subscribers today. WKYC/3 (NBC), WEWS/5 (ABC) and WJW/8 (FOX) were already on the bird when local HD service launched some time ago.

We have no word if that means sister MyNetworkTV outlet WUAB/43's HD feed will follow on DirecTV. We also don't know if WB-to-be-CW affiliate WBNX/55 will also show up on the bird in HD. DirecTV doesn't seem to be in a hurry to add stations beyond ABC/CBS/FOX/NBC to the HD locals...

This is indeed good news. I just hope Dish Network follows soon. From what I've heard from some Dish employees, Dish will offer all the locals in HD in the Cleveland market soon, including WBNX(The CW). Athough, they didn't mention anything about MyNetwork and I didn't bother to ask.
