OK, just to set expectations. No national festivus this week......but, could be a very small one coming fairly soon. Stay tuned.

HD locals festivus will continue tomorrow with some additional markets. I'll provide the list when I can.

Happy HD festivus for those of you in those local markets.


Edit. Locals should be Jefferson City, MO and Evansille, IN. Assuming all goes well. Same disclaimer that not all networks may be ready for HD.

Be it good news or bad news, or just good news for some, I'm always glad to get it. Thanks for the FU.

DUDE!! I was flipping through channels the other day and "Knight Rider" (the Hoff version) was shown letterboxed on Sleuth.

When they announced Chiller HD years ago Sleuth HD was also announced... but nothing ever came of it, just Chiller HD... maybe we'll see Sleuth HD eventually.

Yeah, I know. That's why I mentioned it... as I don't think "Knight Rider" was letterboxed before on Sleuth, so perhaps it is in preparation for the HD channel.

I do have to ask one question though. You say "nothing ever came of it", but couldn't the same be said for Chiller HD?

I've seen DirecTV presentation slides with Chiller HD as well as Comedy Central HD, but that was a year ago.

Still waiting on BBCA or alternative flavors of the BBC in HD to arrive.

Always get my hopes up when checking sched in advance and see slots kept at "to be announced" right up until a day or two beforehand. And then they fill it with another variation on toys in the attic or something.

Those are the only 2 going live tomorrow?

Satelliteracer - can you shed any light into when we may see Fox News Channel HD? Is FNC holding this up or D* or both?

Oh my. This should stir up a hornet's nest.

Thanks for the info.

And, guys, he said "fairly soon." I will leave that to cunning linguists to determine if that is sooner than soon or sooner than anon or later than either.

The more ominous admonition is the part about the possible upcoming national HD festivus being "very small".
