And UPN and WB are 1080i, as is I think Discovery HD and HDNet and
others, I think this pattern is universal.

Right now I think 720p is the wisest choice because very few people have
TVs with 1080 real lines on them, so why interlace?   Over time of
course I hope to see the world move to 1080p, which you don't see at
all yet.  In fact, most HDTVs won't take it, which I think is silly,
since our computer monitors have had cheap electronics to display
1600x1200px85hz for a decade now, as one example.
