Our CW in Reno has been an HD channel for years, but it is the only local channel we don't get in HD on DirecTV. Weird. We even get a "My Network 21" channel in HD for some reason, but no CW. I would love to be able to see Supernatural in HD!

Been waiting for cw in hd for a while here in Harrisburg,Pa. We have all the others in HD but not CW. We even have PBS. The CBS affiliate owns CW here and they are in HD.

Wow, Pittsburgh is the only market in the top 30 not to get the CW in HD and the 8 markets after us get it to.

I wonder what Pittsburgh did to upset D*


I would very much like to get Pittsburgh's CW in HD too. It's not a subchannel in the area and I believe DishNetwork has added it in HD within the last few months.

As to Pittsburgh, the issue probably is that the station is actually in Johnstown. CBS owns it and operates it out of its co-owned KDKA studio, but the FCC requires that the transmitter remain elsewhere.

Anyway, we get our local CW station in HD. Really a waste as the only things it ever shows in HD is the CW's actual network programming which is only 2 hours per day, 5 days per week (and so estrogen soaked as to be uninteresting to me), and a single football game on Saturdays (which is available elsewhere in the Sports Pack).

I'm not thinking about leaving, but I checked and it is avaliable from Dish.

CW in Reno not in HD anymore. They had financial problems so I understand and sold HD to KREN (Univision) a year or more ago.

I'm also frustrated that Pittsburgh doesn't get the CW in HD. You pay a lot of money for these HD channels and they don't all come in HD! I find it ridiculous. And I love DirecTV, I do. But I want to watch my Supernatural in HD.
