Lots of HD channels have a mixture of HD and SD programming. Personally I don't need to see better resolution of a collection of talking heads sitting around a desk. Unless you want to see Kelly (or is it Kelli) in all her HD goodness. Not my type. I did like that dark-haired, wide-mouthed woman who left Golf Central to go to the networks and has since fallen into oblivion. What was her name?
One thing I like about the fact that some of their events coverage is still in SD is that I can use the zoom feature on my TV to push the incredibly annoying crawl they use off the bottom of my screen. No channel annoys me more with its crawl than the Golf Channel. Not only must they tell us the scores of every single event, they keep telling us those scores over and over again. How about running it once for a minute or two every ten or fifteen minutes? How many times do I need to see that Paul Casey is at -7 in some Euro event? If it's the ad revenue they want from the logo in the lower left, let them just show the logo for the alloted time and get rid of the scroll.
