We will get ESPNU HD by March 31.

There's no such thing as ESPN Classic HD and there never will be since it shows mostly vintage footage and no original shows.

I rarely watch a show unless its in HD. Everything new should be in HD, so why aren't shows like The Apprentice and The Bachelor shown in HD?

Also, Seinfeld and Everybody Loves Raymond have been remastered to HD (not stretched to fit HD screen). They should do this with other top syndicated shows like Friends and The King of Queens.

You actually like watching upconverted sitcoms from the 90's? I think you're missing the point of HDTV.

Actually non HD shows like Nash Bridges or Twin Peaks look great on a channel like C & I HD

When is the launch of the D12 satellite, and how long after that satellite is launched will we be seeing new HD channels?

They're not upconverted. Both shows were shot on film and have been re-transferred in high definition widescreen. They look fabulous...which is EXACTLY the point of HDTV.

Um no, when something is shot with standard definition equipment and made into HD later, that's called upconverting. NONE of the shows you mentioned were shot in HD, they were made before HD existed. Read this for more info:

You are not considering the fact that some sitcoms were shot on film. HD resolution can be extracted from 35mm film. While cropping is still necessary (since it was shot for 4:3) that doesn't mean that the original film cannot be remastered for HD resolution. It's obviously a time consuming/costly process that I've only seen on Seinfeld so far.

Consider the fact that George Lucas needs to go back to the archives to get the original/remastered film every time a newer/upgraded resolution becomes available (he went to the original film rather than Upconverting VHS to DVD or DVD to HD). He obviously didn't shoot on "HD" equipment back in the 70s; it just so happens TVs have been far behind the camera equipment on the technology curve and are just now starting to catch up.
