The sad part about OTA is that many stations are still using the same MPEG-2 encoder they bought in 1998 (especially if you're in a major market).

On the AVSForum HDTV Programming section, a lot of folks complain about NBC. Here in Silicon Valley, NBC looks fine because they have new encoders, and the weather sub-channel only gets 1.5 Mbps or so (and still looks okay).
