We get PBS here in Boise on LiL, but I wish they would not be so cheap. They downgrade PBS HD to 720p so they can also run 4 subchannels.
They do that in Arkansas also. Its the reason I canceled my donations. I used the donation .money to buy an HD fta dish to watch it in 1080i.
Tivo Premier XL4, Tivo Premier, Tivo HD whole home on Xfinity HD, DirecTv Whole Home with 39" high gain KaKu dish, Roku3,SageTv 8 TB Win8 Server -> DVDO Edge-> Denon AVR, Klipsch KB15's/Panasonic 55ST60 plasma"

How can PBS allow a national HD feed on Comcast but not D*?? Or how can D* not close that deal? As long as there are lots of non-HD LIL DMAs, there are still lots of non-PBS HD homes.
IMHO Comcast has gotten so big and powerful that the pols will not do anything to upset them. They got the NBCU purchase pushed through even with the opposition against the purchase as anti competitive. And with GE in the picture, it was a slam dunk.
