    They could be waiting to add it untill the "fiscal year" ends with the other NBC-contracted channels, that way, all of that content has one experation date, one renewal date, and can be lumped into one contract, and one check.

    Plus, the deal to carry Sleuth wasn't made until about two weeks after the launch anyway.

    I already see more than I want of Michael and Kitt on UHD. Can't we just let some shows die as they should?

    Curious: you can take pre-HD programing and make it HD? Is that like AAD on the back of Cd's? not truly digital? :rolleyes:

    Nope. HD has nothing to do with digital. HD refers to the line resolution of the video. Anything shot on film has more than enough inherent resolution to be broadcast in HD.

    It's been my experience that every "niche" or specialty channel I have ever looked forward to getting has been a disappointment once I was able to view it.

    I don't see this one being any different.

    But I am sure someone will like it and good for them. (trying not to be too negative).
