    What age is that? Everyone's eyesight is different. Some are relatively blind at 20. Some never wear glasses ever an reach a ripe old age.

    I'm 74 with glaucoma and I can easily tell the difference between HD and MPEG2 SD stations, but there is a MPEG4 local in the Seattle DMA (KVOS) and it's a bit harder for me to tell with that one.

    RabbitEars.Info states KVOS-TV is MPEG-2 from the source via OTA. 704x480i resolution, 4:3 AR. I am not aware of any OTA stations in native MPEG-4 in the US.

    Technical info from TSReader: http://www.rabbitears.info/screencaps/bc-van/35862-0_0.htm

    EDIT: I see now, D* is carrying it as a MPEG-4 SD feed via SAT on 99°s

    Anyone else notice they are now tracking regional sports networks available in HD? There counts for D* look fairly accurate.

    D* has been carrying Sportsman Channel's VOD content in HD for a while now (channel 1605 on HD/DVRs & Genie's)

    I wonder if this is a first Sixto; :)

    You posted this news to the anticipation thread before your official locked threads for announcing new HD channels in test?

    Well OWN HD is certainly got to be one of them, but the other two I can't fathom.
