    I have a feeling until D11 is up and running Directv has no interest in the Superstation HD.:mad: If we are lucky we may have it by May but I'm guessing at the earliest it will be June or July, if then.:flaiming

    I would love to have the HD version but if not I just wish the SD picture quality for the channel would be improved because right now it's BRUTAL. One of the worse station pq's on D* there is I think.

    I guess all we can do at this point is let our voices be heard by keep sending e-mail's and phone calls.

    Maybe it was my imagination, but WGN News at Nine tonight was in HD. I kept looking at it and it did seem like it was. Anyone else notice that?

    WGN news is not even broadcasted in HD, here in Chicago on the local station

    Weird. Am going to have to check the settings on the HR20 then. It filled my entire screen, and looked like HD from here. No other non-HD channel on my HR20 has ever been observed to do that.

    I already cleared the buffer from watching it live...

    But is it possible you have your unit set to STRETCH, or Native mode turned on?

    It was your imagination. WGN does not broadcast the news in HD.

    Replied back with an e-mail today to get an update on the "discussions" with Directv. We'll see if I get any response. I was hoping we would have the station by the time baseball season starts but at this point it's very unlikely that will happen. Hopefully we will have it at least by early summer, but I'm not too confident on that either.

    Im soooo tired of this same topic being made into a new thread week after week. When and if WGN HD makes it to D* we will rejoice. But that day has not arrived, and no one knows when or if it will happen...

    Uh, this thread is about 6 weeks old. Hardly a new thread here.

    Back on topic:

    Hey, I'd be happy if the WGN HD games were in the EI package. That would be good enough for me.

    Outside of...
    I've noticed on my H20 that the SD picture quality is definitely bad. I wonder if it's an uplink problem? It's the worst channel on my system as soon as picture quality.

    Well here is the response I got, pretty much what I figured would happen:

    XXXXX:

    Unfortunately, DIRECTV still has not chosen to carry Superstation WGN in HD.

    I can't stand to watch a full game of the Cubs, the PQ is the worst out of any SD channel on DirecTV.

    What is truly significant about this is that it is on the WGN SUPERSTATION's page. Now we just need D* to carry WGN SuperStation HD

    WGN has always been one of the lowest quality SD stations. Looks bad even on ESPN highlights.
