    Birmingham, AL
    Huntsville, AL got PBS in HD today, which is the *exact same feed* as PBS in the rest of the state. Birmingham still does not have PBS HD. What gives.

    WPXT 43 (51.1 virtual). They ARE broadcasting in HD-I've talked with the station manager. Time Warner is carrying them in HD, but not Directv or Dish.
    I want my HD Supernatural!!! lol

    In my market The CW and My Network TV are only available in SD. They are sub channels of the local NBC and CBS station.

    Directv carries the CW subchannel in SD but not the My Network TV SD feed.

    Here is the local lineup on Directv

    7 WITN DT NBC HD
    9 WNCT DT CBS HD
    15 WNCT DT2 THE CW SD
    12 WCTI DT ABC HD
    14 WYDO DT FOX HD
    25 WUNC DT PBS/UNC HD
    25.2 WUNC DT2 UNC KIDS SD

    Same here, I did see a test channel for WUPVDT and a test channel for 23 on the LIL Channel Transponder map that gct sends out on network 669. I am keeping my fingers crossed.

    I agree why no WGBH HD? While we are talking about Boston Local HD why not WSBK and WMUR.

    Other than waiting for a program to come on that should be in HD, is there a quick way to tell if a channel is being broadcast in HD?

    How about putting it this way: What is the reason we DON'T have WGBH (PBS) in HD?
