    If I were to subscribe to HDTV services, would it affect the picture quality at all? I have a Zenith 40 inch EDTV Plasma. Thank You

    You will get exactly the same resolution you have now because it will actually be downconverted to the native resolution of the TV, AFAIK.

    But it will look amazing compared to analog cable on the ED. My coworker has the Panasonic Plasma EDTV and watches OTA HDTV and it is flat out amazing. Yes, I know it is only 480 lines, but it looks so much better than regular signals on the EDTV.

    Yes, it will still look better than standard broadcast.
