According to news over on the AVS Forum, Erie’s local HD stations will be offered soon by Dish Network. The satellite company plans on launching the HD stations on May 13th. This move could help Dish compete with regional cable companies that already offer HD locals. Of course, you’ll only see WJET, WSEE, WQLN and WFXP in HD since WICU will not have its own full powered digital signal on the air until June 12th. Even then, HD programming may not be offered by the NBC affiliate right away.
