    Finally! Just in time for the Sinclair dispute.

    Finally, the drought is over. No Sinclair owned stations here.
    So, I guess the sale of Northwestern to Apollo is complete.

    I guess the new agreement did not include adding the HD feed of any subchannels. Here in Binghamton, NY ZIP 13901 we have Fox 40 from Northwestern on 40.1 (D* channel 40). Channel 40.2 (D* channel 10) is MyTV which is available in HD on cable and OTA but has only been a center cut, down rezzed SD version on D*. After this long dispute, it still is that way. i thought maybe they'd include the HD version of this channel in a new agreement.

    I am not sure you can be certain yet. I would guess there would be substantial work to change it, which would take time. Sometimes an email to the station manager will illuminate the answer.
