High Definition T.V.

NPR''s Jim Zarroli reports that the major networks will begin transmitting high definition television programs this weekend, but it''s doubtful that many people will be watching. That''s because most local stations are not yet equipped to broadcast in the new High Definition T.V. format, and the sets that receive High Definition T.V. are still too expensive for most viewers to buy.
