There doesn't seem to be a High Def version of CW in my area. So, I can't watch any live CW shows or record them in HiDef. I can get HD from the same shows On Demand. But that's not as good as live or DVR. What gives?
Due to Designated Market Area laws, Comcast can only carry stations that cover viewers in that area. They cannot simply add a network feed or from another nearby station that may have it in HD.
CW seems to be fast becoming a neglected stepchild. Here in Chicago, it moved from WGN (independent) to WPWR (owned by Fox). It is in HD, but the audio is only 2.0 and has NASTY volume limiting that makes it sound very jangly and edgy. I often wait for the OnDemand copy to become available, as it sounds better.
