I hope their's a way to turn it off. Even though it's considered a simulcast station, sometimes ESPN blacks out the HD feed and has different games on the sd channel. This weekend's a good example (read the text in the bottom right of the pic).
I believe this only applies to roughly 20 channels.
This will help promote HD and insure customers are actually watching HD. Any roll out schedule? I am tired of asking my wife to change to the HD channel.
I am so bothered by this switch from standard definition to high definition as our only option. My boyfriend and I are both Cablevision subscribers who heavily rely on our DVRs, and with being forced to record our shows in HD we are losing the recording space we are accustomed to. We called Cablevision last night and they gave us some useless song and dance about it being a convenience for the customers, and that we were all being upgraded. Although they mentioned a more accommodating box with greater storage capacity, there was no assurance as to when that might be. We were told that we had the option of independently purchasing our own external hard drives to help with storage. We each have 2 boxes, so we have to come out of our own expense to purchase 4 external drives for a decision we had absolutely no input in??? Although we have chosen to remain faithful to Cablevision in the past, with the uprising of FiOS, I have to say we are no more closely exploring our options.
