Thanks Brent, but I'm still wondering if WLTX will offer HD coverage on Thursdayu dna Friday, and I have not seen confirmation of this since the USA Network coverage was announced.
Ken posted this in the HDTV programming Forum..:
During the first two days of coverage, Thu 4/10 & Fri 4/11, CBS stations will be receiving two different program feeds from the network. One is the analog regularly scheduled daytime programming, the other is the digital HDTV Masters.
The 17 CBS owned and operated stations will be airing the standard daytime programming on their analog channels, and the digital channels will air the HDTV feed of The Masters. The 17 markets served by CBS O&O stations are: Austin, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Los Angeles, Marquette, Miami, Minneapolis, New York, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Salt Lake City, San Francisco, and Green Bay.
The other 80+ CBS affiliated stations capable of HDTV, have the choice of airing standard programing or the HDTV Masters feed on their digital channel.
All CBS stations are receiving information that brings the HDTV Masters feed to their attention, but it remains an elective decision of the non-O&O stations to air the HDTV feed of The Masters on Thu & Fri.
If you live in an area that can receive CBS HDTV, and your area is not on the list above, it may be a good idea to take a moment, call the station during normal business hours, and politely request they air the HDTV feed of The Masters on the digital channel. I would think the programming department or station manager would be the best place to register your suggestion. On line feedback may also be useful.
It can't hurt, and may prevent disappointment on Thu & Fri.
