    WGNHD just went live on a local cable service in my area. Has there been any announcements that D* will be adding said channel?

    If you are talking about the superstation version, they are talking, but dont expect WGN anytime soon.

    So what is WGN-HD showing in HD?
    Seriously... I am curious.

    Other then the future limited number of Cubs/Sox/Bulls games...

    What is on WGN-HD in HD....

    Good question Earl. In fact, you can ask the same question about several of the new HD channels. MTV and VH1 have been in HD on D* now around a month. I don't think either channel has shown a single second of hd anything.

    I want WGN in HD for the sports. Baseball in particular. :)

    Very true.

    My guess would be then WGN-HD won't be carried till the baseball season get's closer.

    As I don't think there are many Bulls Home games scheduled on WGN

    I agree. If it was added by early April that would be early enough. They show so few bulls games I didn't even know they still did!!! I just find the games on LP.

    This seems to have the same issues as TBS. Its a basic rerun channel made up of reruns recorded before HD was invented. Other than the sports, they could hold off on the HD for 20 years and be OK.

    Obviously, my ignorance of WGN will shine bright, but I thought just about all their primetime lineup was in HD. I'm pretty sure they have that Superman show in HD because I saw it playing on hdnet.

    WGN-CW Chicago
    vs
    WGN - Superstation.

    WGN-CW Chicago is already in HD in the Chicago DMA

    But the Superstation, doesn't carry the CW primetime (and a lot of their other programming)

    The OP is referring to the Superstation (channel 309)

    It occasionally has some good classic re-runs

    I just went to check it out, and all it has is old game shows on all day. No wonder I've never watched.
