Don't get too excited about MTV, VH-1 or CMT. None of them ever broadcast in HD, even when they're presenting HD content. For example, a few months ago CMT broadcast the 2008 Country Music Awards in SD, even while MHD (a channel that presents all the HD programming created by MTV, VH-1 and CMT) was simulcasting it in HD.

Yes, those three channels actually produce HD programming, but never show them in HD.

The reality is that it's going to be several years before most networks are showing 100% of their NEW content in HD. And most of the re-runs will be SD forever, with possible exceptions for older shows shot on film that can be remastered.

NickAtNite/TV Land in HD? Not much point in that unless someone is paying for a whole lot of new transfers.

At least channels like Comedy Central, while not "needing" to be in HD necessarily, still have lots of newly-created content that CAN be in HD, and will be produced that way as things go forward.
Too many "HD" channels are still producing new content in SD. Bravo comes to mind, and of course the ubiquitous MTV.
