I live in Puerto Rico as a US territory we must comply to FCC standards but local stations do not relay programming from the big national broadcast stations, instead they only retransmit Telemundo and Univision so to get ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX etc, you have to take the cable TV or Direct TV road. Cable TV here is operated by Adelphia. None of them DirectTV or Adelphia have plans to provide HD transitions here. The top set boxes that they are currently providing don't have a component, vga or DVI port, only composite and in some isolated cases s-video.
I contacted must of the local channels here and none of them except one, seems to be worry about the FCC deadlines.
Anyway I live in an apartment without DirectTV, cable is the only option so it seems that I am...!!!
