    Bravo-HD is without Closed Captioning, just like USA-HD and SCIFI-HD. :(

    As I said in those threads, it seems NBC-owned networks don't believe the deaf/hard of hearing people use their channels. If they fail to provide closed captioning, they won't, either.

    Yes! More upconverted infomercials. ;) The good news is it doesn't appear that they stretch their infomercials, so that's a good sign.

    I think Top Chef is in HD...and this would be just in time for the finale. Hells. Yes.

    I'm betting Project Runway is in HD too, which would be cool. And, yes, it sort of IS a chick show, but my chick got me into it and now I'm addicted. :lol: :lol: I wonder if the barely naked models have anything to do with it.

    Wasn't Universal HD originally BravoHD? Shows how far we have come.

    I guess bravo HD decided to un retire lol. What's good in HD on this channel now? It used to be the West Wing channel.

    I got no joy this morning on Bravo-HD; nothing but a black screen. Hopefully, it'll be fixed by the time I get home tonight.

    For real.

    If I may quote Homer Simpson, "I like my beer cold, my TV loud, and my homosexuals FLAMING!"

    Seriously, Dale has been cracking me up all season. I'm rooting for him for sure.

    He's a totally cool guy, what I love, what you see on TV, is really him. What I think is great is he his real nice, did a few local neighborhood benifets this past month, and is now looking to open a restuerant here in the hood. Dale you rock.

    I've been watching. I hate the "Hung your food is technically fantastic but we don't get your soul in it." It's such B.S. When I go to eat good food, I want good food, not someone's soul. They're selling a Casey win anyway.

    They were showing Top Chef Re-Runs this morning from earlier this season and they were NOT HD. I don't think Top Chef is filmed in HD.

    Anything else in HD on Bravo? Queer eye's final season perhaps?

    I think they're starting West Wing again... at least I thought I saw that. I assume it would be in HD?

    So..... basically we have an HD channel with no HD programming?

    Will the new season of Project Runway be in HD?

    I looked forward in the guide and saw nothing on Bravo with an HD tag on it. At least they're not stretching or cropping their non-HD content.

    I've noticed several of the new HDs don't have anything in the guide in HD... let us know if that's an error or if it's all upconverted.

    I'll still record the SD anyway, until they get captioning on the HD channels. Meh to them for not having it now. :(

    sure HD looks better than SD and I'm glad we have it, but why rush to add HD channels with NO HD programming? Does HGTV and Food have HD programs?I'd rather have MGM or MHD. AT least they added Cinemax
