The actual Livewell programming is six half-hour shows that run in a three-hour block, five times per day (how often a given episode is repeated, I don't know). They're 16:9, but whether they're natively HD or they're upconversions is beyond the kenning of my eyesight or my hardware.
The other nine hours of programming per day is up to the local station.
Certainly there is nothing in them where it's an advantage to air them in 720p over widescreen 480i (other than the illusory marketing edge of the names "Livewell HD" and "livewellhd.com" over just "Livewell" and whatever the domain would have been if the station were not in HD). To do so at the expense of the main channel is even worse.
