Two weeks ago I became a HD subscriber from Dish and was surprised at the sparse programming in HD. On the local channels only ABC, CBS, NBC and FOX are in HD and that is only in primetime and late night, otherwise it is SD for most of the day. Dish doesn't offer PBS in HD which I has one of the best qualities in HD. On the cable side there is nothing, unless I subscribe to Dish's HD package, which really doesn't appeal to me with the ESPN packages and Discovery channels . I can't understand why at least CNN, FOX News and MSNBC are not in HD considering that they are some of the more popular cable choices. What about Comedy Channel, E channel, SFI channel? When will these guys move to HD? I had heard somewhere that everyone will be broadcasting in HD by 2009? is this true and why are some many stations waiting till the last minute to change over, is it the expense involved? How often does Dish add new HD programming?
