Sinclair is the only one who wants to. And, as sad as it seems - when a network conglomerate has ~180 stations nationwide, and not a SINGLE ONE is avaliable in HD over cable or dish, things do not look good.

Thanks for the comments... but, where do you get 180 from? Sinclair only owns 60 stations. And some ARE on cable, even in other markets on Charter from what I understand.
What the other stations in town do isn't really our concern.
And, like I said, I see both sides! I think it SHOULD be on cable, I'd rather have more people see all the hard work I put in to help get HD passed through. But, I couldn't see myself personally spending $300 for a set-top box to watch only 5 HD channels, and usually only in primetime. I'd want ESPN, Discovery, HBO, Showtime, etc all in HD as well.
But whatever, I think you should be bitching about how much ESPN charges, $2.00 a household?
I'm sure our corporate HQ's will come to some resolve at some point.
I have to ditto this:
