After an hour and a half on the phone over 3 days with 3 different people, I was finally qualified for the CBS HD channel.


I have the Atlanta and Chicago Dishnets, and I was told the only was they could give me the CBS HD channel was to remove (1) CBS channel from either city, which then makes it "a la carte" at $4.50 a month for 3 channels v. 4.99 for 4... then add the HD channel for 1.50.


Anyone else have a similar experience?


Not really whining... it is nice to have another HD channel at the cabin http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif

Congratulations. Curious if any material you or others have seen about CBS-HD via satellite indicates that all non-HDTV CBS programming, generally during the day, is upconverted 480 NTSC (to non-HD 1080i)? That's what the flagship NYC CBS transmits locally. If that's what Dish is delivering, and subscribers aren't aware of it, it appears they can degrade non-HD CBS programming quality severely by not watching it in 1080i mode. -- John
