To head off the question ahead of time:
"What is the status of HDTV in Denver"
It is the same Today as it has been for months and months and months. Update: More stations in low power, progress on KWGN and KRMA full power.
Update: LCG has planning approval - KWGN-DT in High Power (11/2003).
Update: KMGH moves to Republic Plaza (1/2006)
FOX : KDVR : TV31 : DTV32 On air at Lookout Mountain with a full scale antenna. Can run full power (but think they run about 1/3 to 1/2 power). Fall 2004 and they are now using the Fox 720p feed.
PBS : KRMA : TV6 : DTV18 : Broadcasts a low power signal from the top of Republic Plaza in downtown Denver. They run the national feed in the evenings and local loop during the afternoon. They now have approval from JeffCo to build a full power antenna on Mt. Morrison. Expect 12-18 months from final approval in 4/2003 until OTA? Currently they plan on moving the 1KW antenna to Mt Morrison and run that for awhile before going full power. (See http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...68#post2037268
for plans). This will increase ERP, but still low power. Also they plan to meet the 50% simulcasting FCC requirement, mostly during the day.

KWGN : TV 2 : DT34 :ON THE AIR - 11/18/2003. First high power (450KW ERP) true HDTV (Fox was 480p) in Denver! Eventual plans for 1MW.
KDEN: TV25 : DTV29 : Low power non HDTV broacast from Longmont.
KWHD: TV 53 : DTV46 : On air 4/6/2003.
KTVD : TV20 : DTV19: On Air Jan 2006. Broadcasts a low power signal from the the top of Republic Plaza. Part of LCG antenna group.
Others stations (PAX,etc):If they want to broadcast from Lookout Mtn it does not look like it will happen soon. Colo Springs and Cheyenne should be on the air in 2003 for far north and far south viewers. Some stations On air as of late 2003 - others in progress.
Approval for the LCG tower was given in Mid 2003. Sent to Judge Jackson. Sent back to County Commisioners. Sent back to Judge Jackson. Sent back to County Commisioners. Sent back to Judge Jackson (hearing planned in 4/2006?)
CBS-HD West or East feed is available via Dish Network and others via Canadian systems StarChoice and ExpressVu. Fox also available. DirecTV carries some HDTV, must have waiver.
