I stumbled onto JLTV this evening and they were running a crawl stating they were moving off the SD receivers and would require an HD receiver to continue seeing the channel after 26-Feb. I'm assuming this is still going to be in SD, but in the MPEG-4 stream. JLTV does seem to be in 16x9 but no idea if it's available in HD or not, not that it matters since it appears to be a public interest type channel and is apparently very niche.
I'm not Jewish but sometimes their JN1 News shows are interesting, having an Israeli-based perspective on the world's events. Hopefully the picture quality will improve to "Real Video circa 1999" to something watchable with the switch.
JLTV is grouped with all the religious channels but seems to not be specifically religious in nature.
Anywho, just thought someone might want to know.
