Nothing if you have cable or satellite.

I have HDTV ready TVs hooked up to Dish network. My local channels are available over the air, but Direct TV, and Dish don't offer them in HD, and with the other HD programing available, it hasn't seemed worth the money to get the HDTV package, so I have been waiting for the switch. Is it going to happen?
