HDTV magazine is reporting that the WB network will broadcast up to 4 hours of HD per week starting in the new season. No press release.

Let's see...do they have any Star Trek spinoffs on their schedule or is that UPN?

UPN is owned by CBS-owner Viacom. Read into that what you wish.;)

Which shows? I'm hoping for Gilmore Girls, Angel and Off Centre in HD. I currently don't watch Smallville, but that would change if it was HD.


720P as earlier rumors suggested or 1080I?

The WB Television Network's new schedule is out there.


Here it is.


Monday:

Seventh Heaven at 8 p.m., followed by a new drama with Treat Williams called Everwood at 9 p.m.


Tuesday:

Gilmore Girls at 8 p.m., followed by Smallville.


Wednesday:

Dawson?s Creek at 8 p.m., followed by the new Birds of Prey (think Bat Girl).


Thursday:

Two new comedies kick the night off, starting with a redo of 1960s sitcom Family Affair, starring Tim Curry. At 8:30 p.m., a new show from former NBC Entertainment president Warren Littlefield called Do Over will air. The Jamie Kennedy Experiment and Off Centre air from 9 p.m. to 10 p.m.


Friday:

The night kicks off at 8 p.m. with the new What I Like About You, starring Amanda Bynes. The returning Sabrina the Teenage Witch and Reba follow, and the night wraps with a new Latino comedy, Greetings from Tucson.


Sunday:

At 7 p.m., the network will program repeats of Gilmore Girls (as it did with Seventh Heaven a few years back) packaged as Gilmore Girls: Beginnings. Charmed is at 8 p.m. and Angel is at 9 p.m.

Seems like anything shot in HD or anything new might be a good candidate for distribution and broadcast in HD.

And 7th Heaven and Gilmore Girls are my girls' two favorite shows.
At least you have a local WB!!!


I am a man and I love Gilmore Girls.


I cannot believe I admitted it in a public forum.:p

The wife would be ecstatic if Angel and Smallville were HD. The only thing that would be better for her is if Buffy the Vampire Slayer were HD, but Buffy is on UPN which here in Los Angeles is the Undigitally Programmed Network. UPN has a digital transmission, but really doesn't look different from NTSC.


Anyway, if more of the wife's shows go HD, it can only help make things smoother when upgrading the HT. :p

Joe Addalia the CE at the Orlando WB affiliate said as early as last Febuary that both Reba and Angel would be 720p next season.
