    Aren't the Superstations in HD on spot beams in those towns?

    Three of the four stations that are used as superstations are available in their own markets in HD. They are delivered by spot beam. If those three stations were moved to ConUS feeds they could be made available to superstation subscribers.

    All I want is KTLA in HD and I'd be a happy camper.

    That would probably include the Jackson, MS CW affiliate, WRBJ, owned by Roberts Broadcasting Co of St. Louis. They won't broadcast HD. The station used to have its own website and facebook presence, but removed them completely.

    I have a suspicion that they got tired of people complaining about the low picture quality and lack of HD. My wife is into The Vampire Diaries. The show uses low light in many of the scenes for effect. If you watch on the CW website or via HD avi file, you see the faces and other objects in the room just fine. On WRBJ, some faces and objects go black. Also, the picture quality is a little fuzzy.

    If Dish would offer any of the CW superstations in HD, preferably WPIX New York, we'd gladly pay the $2 per month and tell WRBJ to jump in the lake until they upgrade to HD.

    All local TV stations should be CONUS.

    That makes absolutely no sense geographically or financially. Since most watchers of local stations will be in that specific local area, perfectly suited for spot beams and not CONUS.

    It would be nice if they were at least 16:9 rather than center cut and zoomed.

    If you downgrade your programming within 30 of adding or changing your programming, there is a $5 downgrade charge. Any time after 30 days, there is not a downgrade charge. I just wanted to clarify this. Thanks.
