Discovery HD Marches in Rose Parade
Why do they say "the first and only coverage"? Hasn't KTLA done the parade in HD the last two years?

Discovery Networks U.S. president of new media John Ford announced Wednesday that 13 new hours of programming are being added to its list of January "Discovery HD Theater" offerings.
This includes the first and only high-definition coverage of the Jan. 1 Tournament of Roses Parade.
That live event has already been announced as a special on Home & Garden Television, although that production will not be in HD.
Discovery HD Theater -- which launched six months ago with about 110 hours of high-def programming -- will present triple that amount by December 2003, Ford said.
Other January titles on Discovery's HD slate are Night of the Wolf Jan. 6, The Real Eve Jan. 13, Before We Ruled the Earth Jan. 20 and 21 and Gentle Ben Jan. 27.
Wolf and Gentle Ben are original Animal Planet movies, while Eve is a Discovery Channel special.
