Apologize if this has been brought up (again) recently. Noticed last night that channel 2 (WGBH, Boston's PBS station) now shows up in the guide as WGBH instead of "BN2". Is this a sign that we'll be getting it in HD soon? As I recall, when WLVI (56) went HD about 2 years ago, it went from BN56 to WLVI in the guide as well.

Unfortunately, the renaming is just something they are doing in several markets. It's not an indication they are about to add WGBH.

Not only 2, but 11 and 44 as well according to the Android app. Finally! Now if we could get 38 and 50. (I won't be holding my breath)

Just noticed we have it in HD on Friday!!! I can finally watch This Old House in HD the way it's supposed to be! 38 is kind of a crap channel, it's all re-runs of re-runs, and old shows. What else is good on there?

Just noticed: Anyone else have muffled sound? I had to turn my volume all the way up to 50 (usually keep it on 19, 20). I can hardly hear it. HD looks perfect though.

About time PBS in HD showed up in the Boston market, wondering if they'll pick up the sub channels on 11 and 44...know that these aren't HD but still are nice to have...
