    Will there be any new national HD channels anytime soon? I am not asking for specific channels or anything, just wondering.

    SatRacer,

    Do you know if they have any plans to go back and finish out markets? Cedar Rapids/Waterloo, for example is missing two major networks in HD. Do you know if revisiting incomplete markets is even on their radar?

    Thanks!

    I'm sure it will happen as retransmission agreements are reached with the missing affilliates. It's happened in other markets this way, just no way to know when until such agreements are reached.

    In portland OR we were missing CBS in HD up until recently. Once they finally got a deal they just turned it on. I'd expect it will be similar in your case. It's just a matter of getting a deal with the local channel.
