Default Star Trek in HD

Does anyone know what channel (if any) in the Tampa Bay area will be showing the HD remastered versions of Star Trek starting 9/16?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the info, but that's for Star Trek Enterprise (which is a show I enjoyed) but I was referring to the original Star Trek series that's in the process of being remastered with new CGI effects etc... Balance of Terror is supposed to premiere on the 16th in HD in syndication. Looks like it's going to be on channel 38. Time to readjust my antenna to pull that station in better

It looks like WTTA-DT won't be showing it in HD. Could someone verify this for us?

From WTTA 38

Quote:
We will not be carrying the Star Trek program in native HD because we currently don't have the ability to record and delay broadcast an HD feed. We are only able to take HD feeds live (typically from network during prime time). We will have the SD version that we will up-convert to broadcast on our HD channel.

We hope to have the ability to record and playback HD programs by the end of next year, as we continue to prepare to make the transition to digital only broadcasting.

Arg! I guess an upconverted SD copy is better than nothing. Can someone please buy them an HDTV All in Wonder card? LOL
