Re: [HD] VHO-5 WLNY TV (10/55 HD)

said by sbernstein5:

While I am quite cynical about FIOS channel adds as well, there are "must carry" laws that the cable companies have to comply with for local channels.

But does "must carry" apply to HD? I assume carrying the SD feed satisfies the "must carry" requirement.

On most broadcast channels there is NO SD feed.

true but cable companies can downconvert hd feeds if they have bandwith constraints. for example time warner downconverts must carry njtv here in nyc. they carry njtv in sd only even though he channel broadcasts in hd.
