...on the process for local channel conversion to HD and what process or negotiation needs to take place to move a local channel to HD. I live in the South Bend In. DMA and out of 8 channels of locals, only one, NBC channel 16, WNDU, is in HD on 61.5. Why is it the the remaining network affiliates are not in HD? On D*, there are two additional channels in HD, Fox and CBS, WSBT and WSJV. What is the process and is it a $ dispute between E* and the affiliates or what? I know the same thing holds true in other markets as well. Comcast offers all the locals in HD so my guess is that it is a $ issue. Sorry if this has been addressed before. Thanks.
