Considering the thousands of dollars some of us have spent to watch HD, this is ridiculous. Most consumers will start calling the store from where they purchased the TV or from whom installed the antenna thinking the TV was broken.
There is NO WAY HD is ready for the masses. What makes it even worse is how bad their usable signal was. I hope the rest of the country isn't having these same problems. This channel is by no means the only problem. Some of NBC's big shows are still not broadcast in HD.
It's just frustrating when we see how good HD really is and then to suffer through SD either because someone screwed up or refuses to get on board.
Just because some chooses to spend "THOUSANDS" on equipment does not entitle that person any more consideration than someone who purchased a $179 special at Walmart. A viewer is a viewer, equal to all others.
Just because some of us are fat on the hip (myself included) doesn't give any of us advantages over those who can't afford or choose other uses for their money.
I would personally like to see this elitist slant removed from this forum. It has no place here.
