DIRECTV subscribers: Are you in an MPEG-4 market?

DIRECTV subscribers who live in some markets qualify for an automatic upgrade to HD-capable equipment. This is because all their local channels, even the standard-definition ones, use the MPEG-4 technology used everywhere for high definition service. If you live in one of these markets… you’ll definitely be using HD-capable equipment.
