    This is cool! At least for those who cannot get it OTA. Now if we can get some other networks on the bandwagon.
    I'm torn, tho. I get CBS loud and clear, but I would like to suppor them so that other networks may be encouraged.

    Hey fella . . . I bet you're still livin' in your parent's cellar . . . downloading pictures of Sarah Michelle Gellar . . . and posting "Me too!" like some brain-dead AOL-er . . . I should do the world a favor and cap ya' like Old Yeller . . . you're just about as useless as MPEGs [sic] to Hellen Keller.

    This is great news, especially for those of us living in areas that have no OTA HD programming. In central VA the earliest projection for OTA HD is spring 2002.
    I switched from Directv to Dish when I found out about the CGMS (copy generation management system) that is included in every Directv HD receiver. I felt that it is very unethical to sell a product without first warning the customer of this feature. For a long time the RCA receivers were sold with no mention of this. I also felt Dish was way ahead in the programming area. Now it appears that Dish is making a serious effort to increase HD programming and for that I am very thankful. Hats off to CBS and the Dish Network if this deal happens.
    Regards,
