The point of the article is that NBC skews its programming to attract well-heeled viewers.
WELL DUH - these are the same viewers that can afford to be early adopters of HDTV. The problem at this time is that Neilsen is not capturing HDTV viewers, so I doubt it's even on the NBC bean counters' radar scopes.
I'm watching far more ABC/CBS programs because they are in HD, & they are good shows, too: Alias, CSI, etc.
Gee, you'd think that since NBC is doing so well, they would would be able to afford to underwrite some of those "enormous" costs of HDTV, perhaps even get the U.S. Open in HD, and introduce themselves to the 21st century and the future of television.
