http://ww2.cox.com/myconnection/hamp...mmerslam09.cox
no pricing

no pricing
http://www.comcast.com/Corporate/Pro...ingevents.ashx
NO MENTION OF HD

no pricing

There is no $10 "Surcharge" on Comcast, SD & HD are the same price ($39.99), at least in Mass.

Mr Mars thanks for your reply..

but it looks like pricing is different across the board..
cable (indemand) is $39.99 for BOTH HD and SD
i emailed a VZ FiOS customer and he writes SD $45 HD $50
D* and E* are $39 for SD and $50 for HD...
i dont know any one with ATT UVERSE so not sure about there pricing.

this is crazy.. i believe it should be universal no matter who your tv provider.. if i dont want cable why should i pay more for ppv events...

MY COMMENTS ARE MY OWN PERSONAL OPINIONS AND IN NO WAY SHAPE OR FORM REPRESENT Vz or D*

I want the same thing. For the first 6 months of this year my local Fox station showed Smackdown in HD at 11pm Friday night. Then in July the local NBC station added a Mynetworktv on a subchannel in SD. Then they had the rights to broadcast Smackdown in my area. So for the last two months I had to go back to watching Smackdown in SD. Also the subchannel broadcasts everything in mono. Now I have to grin and bear it after 6 months of watching it in HD.

Hopefully The 25th Anniversary of Wrestlemania aired on NBC HD this Saturday Night will give me some WWE in HD.

Yes, they will be airing WM25 in HD on NBC. I just wonder how much it'll be chopped up to fit a 4-hour event into a 2-hour timeslot.

Wow I thought it would be a 2-hour slot since it started at 9 and seems even more stupid to cut 4 hours to 1, but I guess someone at NBC thinks it's a bright idea.

It's not even listed for one hour on my NBC affiliate. They have a f--king Browns game on instead.

It's a preseason game and WKYC is "the official home of the Cleveland Browns", so everything gets shown on their channel.

It could be worse. The game could be on "that alleged CBS Cleveland affiliate" to quote Ohio Media Watch. We had to endure that horrible coverage once already since the Browns returned.

I am disappointed in WKYC for not indicating if they will broadcast any of NBC's Saturday lineup. Even if they broadcast on a delayed schedule, it will be in SD anyway.

Of course we all know that they will draw the ratings for the game, no matter how much the Brownies suck. Despite my desire to see the boys from WWE, I can live with the Brownies airing because this is what the majority of Clevelanders want to see.

The least they could do is simulcast NBC's primetime lineup live on 3.2. That channel has been a total waste ever since Weather Plus ended. Now they just show live weather radar maps set to the news theme. How useful!

I'd be happy with SD. It would probably look better than USA "HD" on TWC Cleveland.

I was really excited to catch the replay of the Undertaker and Shawn Michaels match from WM25 but to my surprised it did not show the entire match just clips with music! I am very disappointed they had an entire hour on ECW to show the match but they just decided put some clips of the match and music together.

WNBC-DT aired the WM25 special Saturday Afternoon due to football. Of course, it was aired 4:3 SD.

So last Sunday was a "tryout" for how the general public would responde to Primetime Network TV? it seems they did a poor job of promoting the WWE, if they want more audience they should schedule some events on Primetime Network TV, not asking for main events like Wrestlemania, but how about the other dozen PPVs they do a year?

New York's Telemundo station (47 WNJU) is in HD. Shows lots of stuff in HD, but when it shows RAW, it's in SD. Sorry.

Also, their weekend movies are in SD.

USA HD shows RAW on both cable and sat if you have a provider. You can also watch replays on Universal HD if you have that.

SmackDown in HD depends on if your local MyNetworkTV affiliate or whoever else may be carrying it broadcasts in HD. There's no replays available on another network.

They should also not allow affiliates to dump it in favor of other programming. Or if they do allow affiliates to show something else, it should HAVE to be rebroadcast. WKYC did not get a rebroadcast. We had EIGHT HOURS of infomercials after SNL!!

They need to move Raw to NBC on Monday nights. It would be better than all the reality shows that are on NBC or the other big networks.

I don't think they are ready to say goodbye to "Heroes" just yet (even with slumping ratings and content).

Heck I don't know how My Network TV is making any money from Smackdown on Friday, there is a 90 second silence in the commercial cuts every time, they just flash their logo for those 90 secs.

I don't know how he gets were he was so fast and in the dark, nice trickery, theatre/magic type, trap door?


Will this guy ever retire? Will he ever use his real name?

I hope not. He can still go for a 44 year old man. Some of his best matches were in recent years, with the likes of Batista, Edge and HBK.
