    Reviewing my TV habits as of late (post-marriage), I now mostly watch Fox's Sunday night lineup (like always) and Friends on NBC. All my regular scheduled viewings of prime-time ABC and CBS shows are shot to hell by the HBO and WB preferences of the wife.
    The longer Fox and NBC drag their feet on the majority of their shows, the longer I hold out on buying an HD receiver. It's that simple.

    They both should be fined by the FCC for their lack of HDTV.

    I don't know about FOX. They seem committed to 480p as their standard for broadcasting. Only enormous pressures are going to change their assanine thinking. But, there may be hope for NBC and ABC yet. With CBS inking a deal with Dish Network to broadcast CBS's HD content, at no additional charge, people in O&O (owned and operated) CBS markets (covering roughly 35% of U.S. households) will get any and all HD programs that CBS puts out if they subscribe to Dish. While CBS is the only one of the big three studios to move ahead, expect the others to follow suit. This announcement was a MAJOR shock to ABC, NBC and DirectTV, as most of those were just waiting for someone else to make a move. Now that CBS has, I would think the other studios would step up their HD production schedules. Do not underestimate how important this decision by Dish and CBS really was to the future of HDTV.
