    They will eventually replace the national network feeds in HD though wont they? would that mean getting rid of for example 243, 247 etc? There must be some special afreement in place there for those channels. I am amazed that it doesnt follow over to HD equivalents!?

    Although Dish is not done arguing it, they may well be forced to stop carrying any distant Networks.

    This does not effect carrying your locals assuming they do, or apparently the special arrangement with CBS for at least certain locations (might effect those who were in White Areas).

    I thought there was a deal for a NBC HD like CBS HD for O&O? I thought it came up at a recent convention?

    Is this no longer going to happen? (Of course, unless it is in MPEG2, it won't help me.)
