    My guess is, mostly upconverts until next year... maybe all upconverts. I still expect that's what we'll see with most of these channels since a LOT of them are airing A LOT of SD-only programming... BUT hopefully we'll see some good HD in there...

    Disney Channel
    FX
    Toon Disney
    MTV
    Spike
    TBS
    Cartoon Network
    Bravo
    Comedy Central
    Chiller
    ABC Family
    Sleuth
    USA
    Nick At Nite
    VH1
    CMT
    Biography Channel

    That's got to be a lot of upconverts...

    Vertigo, remember that there will be more before the month is out. The nice thing about Discovery HD is it does show "Deadliest Catch" in HD. I saw it on a commercial the other night in HD.

    Kind of surprised that TWC isn't in the first group.

    I thought I read somewhere that they were ready to go.

    Yeah and Mythbusters, I'm taunted each time it comes on with the "Also available in HD" reminder at the bottom of the screen.

    I REALLY want SciFi before Atlantis started up too, but that is late September we will see!

    Two other shows that I do remember are Mythbusters and Meerkat Manor. They were both in the commercial.

    The Weather Channel is going to mostly upconverts until next year. They have been advertising two new programs in HD, but they don't start until October 1st.

    Even if most shows are upconverts to begin with, the picture quality of an upconverted MPEG-4 "Rescue Me" is something I am looking forward to.

    I'm frankly looking forward to Dirty Jobs in HD. We know that they've been shooting in HD for a couple of years, as every time a camera gets demolished, Mike laments about the cost of their equipment. Gloriously disgusting. :D

    If you're referring to the [Also available in HD] notification at the bottom of the screen, I think they're just taunting us. I mean, getting us ready for Discovery HD.

    Who hoo! 100th Post! :)

    Rescue Me is actually produced in HD ... it's carried as such in Canada on the Showcase channel. So it wouldn't need to be an upconvert.

    So is Nip/Tuck, which is why I'm hoping we get FX HD before October 23rd when the new season starts up.
