From TitanTv website, I found that these stations are supposed to go operational on May 1st 2002. Is this true?
  • IND39 WADL-DT May 1 2002
    PAX33 WPXD-DT May 1 2002
    WB21 WDWB-DT May 1 2002

Does anyone know what format they'll be telecasting? Any hope for HD programs??

Thanks.

Shankar

PAX and WB are highly unlikely to broadcast anything in HD anytime soon. And the Independent station is unlikely to as well, unless they are have pioneering spirit and have ponied up lots of money for HD cameras and recording equipment.

Digital broadcasting does not mean HD, and outside of CBS, PBS, ABC, and NBC, there is almost no OTA HD programming available. (WRAL and some Southern California events like the Rose Bowl being glaring exceptions.)

Seems like I read here somewhere the WB was doing some HD. The others are junk stations as far as I'm concerned, they don't even merit including in my channel listings......
