Boxing: Saturday Feb. 7 at 9PM ET/6PM PT On Ch. 121 (122 HD). for $34.95.
It is also available free on Showtime HD that I subscribe on ch 537 also.
Will it be in HD on Showtime?

I am having friends over and don't want to find out it's not in HD after it starts on SHO because It will be too late for ordering PPV HD.

Thank you

On SHO in the guide doesn't have the "HD" next to the program. Looks like $35 for HD for me. SD on 120" looks awful.

I think you may be right in that it is only in SD for showtime viewers. I can't believe that they would charge $25 for SD PPV when you can see it on showtime for $12 and have that channel for a full month. I guess they just don't expect everyone to notice.

They hope that you forget to cancel after a month or like it so much that you keep it.:(
but this 10$ HD charge is appalling.
