Have you checked with your TWC contacts lately about their desire to get ESPN added on TWC systems? Wis has had a lot of problems with their HD broadcasting of late. Have you heard anything on cable carriage of their HD channel? I noticed that they do not run local commercials on their HD channel when they are broadcasting a HD network feed. It has been my observation that they are the only local station that does not insert local commercials. I wonder if they think it is not important. I am very disappointed that they are not on cable yet . Next month marks the one year anniversary of their digital station. There are a few of us HD local viewers who post comments on a internet forum. You may find this forum interesting. http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...0&pagenumber=1
Interesting you should bring up Mr. Nye. In today's column (here
) he said this under a blurb on tonight's Law and Order: " Like many NBC shows, Law & Order is broadcast in high definition. However, WIS has not yet agreed to allow Time Warner Cable to carry its HD signal. 10 p.m., NBC, WIS-10, cable ch. 3."
I found that rather straight forward and appropriate that he mentioned the lack of NBC-HD on TWC. And, back on Jan 4th, he had a rather nice summary of all the HD on TWC except for HBO and Showtime. He mentioned both INHD channels, HDNET, the locals (save NBC) and the lack of ESPN-HD. Perhaps in time he will be say more. I wonder if he had a HD setup? (I hope so).
