Default CW Network in HD

Is there any plan for dish to ever pick up the CW in HD nationwide?

I know that they do not carry WNAB (Nashville) in HD even though it is broadcast that way. So I got to looking and checked a ZIP code in each market area to see just how many could get the CW in HD from dish.

What I found was quite a lengthy list of stations:

Code:
4	Philadelphia	PA	2,949,310	2.58%	19019	WPSG	57	SD
7	Boston		MA	2,366,690	2.07%	02108	WLVI	56	SD
9	Atlanta		GA	2,326,840	2.04%	30301	WUPA	69	SD

I have omitted markets where the CW is not available OTA.

That’s quite a few markets and quite a few large markets. I know many of these markets broadcast OTA in HD.

What is the holdup on getting these locals in HD (where available)?

The FCC has set a schedule for satellite carriers to carry ALL HD signals in a DMA if they carry any of them in HD, so some time this year they must all be carried in HD if any are.

You seem to have omitted the Plattsburgh-Burlington area. WFFF in Burlington VT broadcasts the CW in SD along with Fox in HD on RF channel 43.

I only posted markets where HD was available OTA, yet not offered in HD by dish.

There are quite a few markets like Burlington-Plattsburg, where the CW is available OTA as a subchannel to some other station. In some markets, dish carries the substation and in others they don’t.

I had expected those markets where the dish didn’t carry the CW in any form would be eligible for WPIX as a superstation.
