    Just curious why do they carry the SD version of a channel if their is an HD version of it?

    That depends on the owner of the channel. DTV can then choose to provide it or not.

    There are customers who have SD only receivers.

    Many channels charge extra for HD carriage. While my preference is "everything in HD", there has to be a budget.

    You would think as long as high def has been available, you would think the channels would have had a renewal or two and it should have came up. But we all know it has got to be a contract issue.

    I am anticipating Sinclair and channels represented by Deerfield to come back. Bring back the locals.

    I see QVC have a special channel for Christmas called Holiday HQ but it seems to be only available on their website as a livestream. I wonder will they launch it on TV also
