CBS, ABC, FOX, PBS here in Denver broadcasting very low power (think 7 kilowatt signal as opposed to 5-7 megawatt signal) due to 50 very rich homeowners living on the mountain where our broadcast towers have been for the last 55 years complaining bitterly to the county that is denying the application for tower replacement. It's a real mess...fortunately I live in the 10 mile diameter circle that can receive the HD signals.

Our CBS (WFSB) is up but only running 500 Watts.

Our ABC (WTNH) is up but they dont care about the fact that their signal has a bad lip sync problem.

I also get a PBS from Springfield Mass.

All the other 13 stations in the state are not in Digital as of yet.

Samsung makes a 27" set with 4:3 screen available at Best Buy for about $800. There is a 32" RCA model at Costco for about $950. Neither has an integrated digital tuner though so you have to factor that in. Supposedly Samsung is coming out with a new HDTV tuner this summer that will retail for under $300.

Here in LA almost all of our stations have a digital signal on the air; the networks have been up for two years or so. There seems to be a very large contingent on AVS Forums from the LA area who have OTA digital tuners already. So far not me though. :(

I think ALL stations in the Indianapolis DMA except the LP ones are broadcasting digital now, and we have a LOT of HD content. There was even an article in the paper about how we are at the forefront in the country in digital tv broadcasting.
