    I just got HD two weeks ago and I find myself watching less and less SD programming. If it isn't in HD I'm alot less likely to watch which is why I'm kind of surprised there is still a ton of SD broadcasts on the National Networks.

    People can whine that CNN doesn't need to be in HD but I think it all needs to be in HD. SD is a relic now and should be phased away as soon as possible.

    Has anyone heard where all these new HD channels will fit in the guide?

    I certainly expect that we will have enough bandwidth to get true SD (yes, SD, not HD), not the over-compressed crap we get now...so at least SD should look the way it did on DirecTV 10 years ago...

    I'm guessing the first week of the Big Ten Network Games will be SD since they start on September 1st. unless they put them on the channels in the 90s. Since baseball won't be a problem during the day on Saturdays. Who knows for sure though.

    I wouldn't expect any changes to SD resolution until the second satellite goes up in late December (or early January?) ...


    On a different note, newsposter asked earlier about HD content on USA, and I think we may be lucky with at least three of their programs: Psych, Monk, and The 4400. All three have had HD airings on NBC, and the DVDs are all available widescreen, so I'm hopeful that when we get USA in HD, we'll see these shows in HD ...

    WWE programming on USA is roughly planned to go HD in Jan 2008, iirc.

    Nah - I don't think Fox will want to an HD channel, because it is only with the fuzzy picture that some can confuse them with the terms "fair" and "balanced". :rolleyes:

    I got this bad news about FSN Pitt from the Post Gazette's tv writer.

    Very disappointing :(

    You'll have to look for the TV Q&A on the postgazette site as I can not post an external link right now.

    Has there been any news about IFC or Sundance offering an
    HD channel?

    I know some of Sundance's programming does air on UHD.

    FOX NEWS SUNDAY which airs on FOX ( and re-airs on FNC) is in HD. Same set overlooking the Capitol used by other FNC shows. Also, Shep's STUDIO B set is under "renovation"...methinks it wouldnt take much to get FNC in HD.

    I see FX as listed under Fall 2007.

    I hope this means early fall, as I would like to see Damages in HD before the season is done.

    Even though I dont see it in the list of "coming soon" networks, does anyone know if playboy HD is a seperate network from the SD channel or is a simulcast?

    Do other carriers give it to you along with the standard playbot TV subscription or is there an additional fee?

    I'm sure D* is mainly concerned with getting the national HD channels online first with D10. They might try to squeeze in a block of HD LIL's by the end of the year on D10, but most will wait on D11 next spring. :)
