Will Fox18 pass through the National Feed 16:9 game on the digital station and do the Panthers game on the analog ch.18? I assume that League rules preclude you from doing that.
Further, Mark Mathis is a Hoot! I actually now watch and record on my ReplayTV the 10:00 news just to see if he is on it. I know he is a "love-him or dislike-him" kind of personality but... if he goes, so does this viewer. Thanks bdfox18 !
Now that we've gotten WCCB-DT, we need to push for ESPN-HD from Time Warner Cable. I sent them an email and got a reply that they hoped to be able to add ESPN-HD by the END OF THE YEAR! It that's the case, I might just have to get it from Directv because I sure would like to have Sunday night football in HD.
At any rate, all of those who are interested in ESPN-HD might want to send an email or letter to TWC making them aware of your interest.
They are well aware of the desire for ESPN-HD, the problem is the fees that ESPN wants to charge. TWC would like to add it without raising rates or making it a subscription channel, but ESPN wants to charge extra for it.
How true! I'm all for the free ESPN-HD channel.Even with Directv you have to pay for it.As its been said so many times here,charging for HDTV sets a dangerous platform for channels going HD.Imagine 25 HD channels that all want 5.00 each! What a nightmare!I like ESPN too but I pay for it now as it is.Its not like the HD channel has any programming different from the standard channel!
I'm Ok with "by the end of the year" - as long as it happens. That's when Sportscenter is going HD and it will be just in time for some ACC basketball. Plus, it's almost September anyway. The "end of the year" is just over 3 months away.
What I don't like is the - "we don't know when or if we are going to carry ESPN-HD"
(hope you guys don't mind a Triangle resident chiming in)
We'll have to switch to 720p when FOX goes, otherwise we'd have to cross convert them and we don't want to do that. Besides, since WOLO-DT and WCCB-DT share common equipment, It makes things here much simpler.
The views expressed here are my own and do not necessarily represent those of ABC, CBS, CW, FOX, MeTv, or AntennaTv; my employer; or its parent company.
Nor my wife for that matter!
CBS will broadcast starting tomorrow in hd, but here's the really good news: USA Network's coverage will be carried in HD on Channel 290 starting on Monday!!!!! Check out twcarolina.com for the schedule. This will be awesome!
If anyone cares to check out channel 291 in "hidden" mode, it's INHD 2. It's listed as Off Air because programming doesn't start until the 15th and it will be unhidden by then. Just somethin to do if you get bored

Can you outline the "how to access hidden mode" for me? I searched the posts and couldn't find anything.
