I lived in quite a few places and spent better part of two years working out of town 5-6 days a week.
Let me rephrase something:
Jacksonville itself is not a backwater city. Its just a lot of companies still treat us as such. Last to get a lot of things.
We shocked the football world and national media twice by landing the Jags and now the upcoming Superbowl.
The best HDTV channel here is PBS. Nice sound, good signal and they even seem to have fixed the broadcast to actually play whats on the analog at the same time!!!
Try as I might, I never could get WB to come in decently out here with OTA. I know quite a few people are the same. Its frustrating. They are passing a signal, but its not enough to pickup and we have no natural barriers (mountains) like a lot of other areas. Has anyone spoken with a WB engineer?
Without the stations broadcasting HD and 5.1, the programs wont come that way. The availibility needs to be there first for the programmers.
With Comcast, I am happy with the HD package. CBS, PBS, NBC, ABC, InHD1, InHD2, ESPN-HD, Sho-HD, Cinemax-HD, HBOHD, StarzHD. Discovery HD should be on any time. Thats a nice HD lineup.
What I complain about mainly is why don't we hear anything from FOX? It just seems like they don't care at all about HD locally (excluding the engineers, although they seem to be kept in the dark about a lot of things). They don't seem like they are concerned with HDTV at all even though it basically being handed to them by FOX with that splicer technology.
