I know this can't happen until my RSN (MASN) starts broadcasting in HD but when they do hopefully DIRECTV will pick it up right away.

I asked a source at WGN when they would be able to do the Superstation side of the house in HD, the response:

We're almost finished moving all our analog head end customers over to our digital distribution platform - that should be completed before the end of the summer. Once I can turn the analog off, we'll have room for multiple digital carriers . . . and yes it is most likely that a HD signal will be available to our cable system customers sometime in early to mid 2008.

See post My Setup for configuration info.
