I sampled a Grey's Anatomy episode. It's pillar-boxed 4:3 and 480p, with no FF allowed. Not sure if that's the case across the board, tho.

I did a quick scan before I left for work and didn't see anything in HD.

I just checked all 6 VOD channels. Not a single program tagged HD. Bummer!

Correct, FF does not work with these channels. Makes them a total non-starter for me, personally.

Yeah that sucks, but it IS better than not having them at all.

SD and FF disabled, might as well not have them. Either HD or FF enabled, then yeah.

It's likely that HD content will eventually be added. But it's unlikely that we'll ever be able to FF.
HD DVRs: HR34-700; HR24-500; (2) HR20-700 + WD eSATA 1TB drive/Antec MX1 case; HR21-700; HR21-200 w/AM21

Since I would only ever use VOD (for those channels) to catch stuff I missed, I am much more concerned with the lack of HD than the inability to FF.

I'm curious to know if the cable versions of these VOD channels have HD content. Anyone know?

Fios does. Maybe not all of them but at least ABC and they have NBC HD.

Before I switched to DirecTV, Time Warner Cable had a lot of on demand HD and just more HD in general.

I don't think DirecTV Disney VOD = TWC Disney VOD. I'm not sure how it works but I think the content might even be a little different.

As far as I know each MSO (Multi-Service Operator) negotiates carriage rights and content separately with each provider. That's why you are seeing a difference.
