Oh, and for those of you that are saying that some of these channels don't have true HD programming so they're pointless, you are wrong. If you've ever watched the SD version of a channel and compared it directly against the HD version (non-HD programming), you'll see a very big difference. If it's not going to be HD, at least it would be high quality SD.
That's the myth, but it is not actually true.
When CNN-HD was added, I switched back and forth during the afternoon SD portion of the programming schedule. There was no difference in PQ, and in fact, FoxNews-SD actually looked better in terms of PQ than CNN-HD during SD-upconverting.
I waited until I was sure no one else had responded. Jackson MS is still stuck at ABC, CBS, NBC (No Fox). Hopefully soon. I'm not sure if the lack of this channel is due to the any litigation or not. Holding out for CW maybe at some point too.
You forgot A LOT of channels....Currently D* only has one HD channel that E* doesn't and that is FX... the rest of the networks have no HD Content so you might as well just change the SD to stretch. FX is pending due to the fox lawsuit.
Last week they added SciFi and USA and immediately the bitching began that they weren't airing any HD content so why add more channels that do not show HD Content.
edit: I forgot Speed HD... not much of a racing fan so it skipped my mind
Not true. Look at the my post above. I listed about 11 channels that show HD pretty much all of the time.I agree with TNGTony about what most of the HD nationals show. There are only about 1 or 2 channels (basically HBO2 and starz edge) that show HD all the time. I hope E* can get those two as soon as possible. Cartoon network and all the rest of the other channels mentioned are not on my "i want it now" list. I hate stretch-o-vision so i dont mind to wait until those channels show more real HD content.
