Local Channel 12 NBC removed

I am paying for local channels on my DirecTV account and as of January 1st, the local channel 12 (NBC) (WXII) was removed. What alteratives are available until this horrible issue has been resolved?

Will Directv provide me acess to channel 392 (NBCe) until my local channel has been reinstated?

The FCC will not allow DTV or any other rebroadcaster to provide any other channels not in your DMA, you can get an OTA antenna and use your TVs coax digital tuner.  It was the stations decision to remove their programs as DTV would have carried them during negotiations. They want you as a hostage so they can get more money for their free OTA programs.
