Now that Sinclair and Mediacom have finished throwing their little temper tantrums and gotten KDSM back on the air, I just wanted to get the word out the the HD feed of Fox has also been added. So, for everyone getting HD from Mediacom, the channel is now available on 817. Retransmission of the HD signal was a part of the contract issues that held this whole thing up, so with a contract in place the HD is good to go. The guide has not updated yet and still shows everything as programming to be announced, but the channel is there.
It looks like Fox stretches all of their content to widescreen on the HD feed, even when it is not originally widescreen content. However, from what I have seen watching it OTA, they do a very nice job with their primetime shows as well as sports. And for an HDTV owner dying for more content, a new HD channel is never a bad thing.
