Here is a copy of the letter I sent to Hubbard in Minneasota. A physical letter is preferred over an email. Maybe Hubbard will help KOB forward the NBC network high-def stuff instead of just forwarding the standard-def stuff over the digital channel.

Dear Mr. Hubbard,
I want to congratulate you on your Albuquerque NBC affiliate KOB-TV for going high-definition digital with the Olympics. This is truly a wonderful event. You are the first commercial station in New Mexico to do so.
You should be praised for your vision in bringing the best in television technology to our state. I have been waiting for over a year, since I got my HDTV, in receiving local digital broadcasts.
I have been enjoying tremendously the Winter Olympics in widescreen high-definition digital. I would have loved to hear the Olympics in Dolby Digital 5.1 but I know you had equipment limitations here in Albuquerque.
I know that going digital is not a profitable venture for any broadcaster but you accelerated the effort before you were even required to provide it for us per the FCC.
I hope that soon after the Olympics that you will be able to forward the high-definition NBC programming over your digital channel instead of just forwarding the standard definition programs over the digital channel.
Yours truly, etc.
