as per the article, it's gonna take them a little while before they're broadcasting real hd, so it's no rush to get the new channels. their chelsea facility shoots in sd right now, but will be upgraded. re-built, really.
a few shows, especially shot with handheld and steady-cams like "throwdown with bobby flay" will initailly be the only ones broadcast in real hd. the rest will be upconverted from sd, which isn't all that great.
ok, being nice, i didn't make any jokes about "sucking in 1080p", or seeing the multiple rows of giada's teeth, or rr's laugh in 5.1 surround...
