As stated in the past there is zero chance it will happen in 5 to 10 years.

Majority of Today's broadcast in:
480i, 1080i

HD today:
720p, 1080i, 1080p

I work with 1080/60 NTSC (1080p) Sony HD Camera (Semi-pro)
Produces
1,440 (H) x 1,080 (V)

When connected via true 1080p HDMI cable to a Panasonic 1080p Plasma.
The picture quality is indescribable and beyond anything you've ever seen
I WOULD DREAM TO HAVE A BROADCAST QUALTY LIKE SUCH
I just don't see how my dream won't come true it will!!!

Technology will continue to evolve driven, in many cases, by economics. If the electronics manufacturers have their way, there will be more and more reasons to by new stuff. Might hedge your bets by buying a 1080p set if you are in the market for a new tv.

Technology will have to find a way to make the room necessary to transport the amount of data that would be needed to support a 1080p broadcast. There is no reason to go out and buy now when there's nothing out there to enjoy it on. Unless you like paying extra $$$$ on something that's first generation, just to kick yourself 2 years later wishing you had waited because the cost came down.

Cableguy must be of the "world is flat" school of thought. Look at where technology is today when compared to just 5 years ago.

5 years ago networks were broadcasting in 480i, (momemtarily in 480p widescreen by FOX), 720p, and 1080i, now 5 years later the broadcast standards are nearly unchanged (FOX now broadcasts in 720p or 480i only), 5 years from now networks will still be broadcasting their programming in 480i, 720p and 1080i. The more technology changes the more it will stay the same.

Yes I see your point
But in progress as we speak:
- HD DVD media and players in 1080p
- Blu-ray media and players in 1080p
- Newer HD consumer cameras as well as pro cameras 1080p
- Free standing DVR units when become available
- All play stations in 1080p
- Many Xbox 360 etc.
- 90% of quality HDTV in 1080p
- Newer Cable boxes and Satellite receivers 1080p
- Even newer HDMI 1.30 cables in 1080p

What is not in 1080p?
- Digital Video Broadcast
- Current Tivo/DVR in fact they still MPEG-2

I guess we just have to wait and see!!!

OK. Some of you guys are welcome to stand around with your heads in the sand longing for the halcyon days of black and white tv sets and 8 track tape players. Or you can excercise some degree of insight, informed by recent developments, that this stuff will continue to evolve. Your choice. And like Forest Gump, that's all I got to say about that.

"Newer Cable boxes and Satellite receivers 1080p."

Not true, at least not as implied, they may convert to 1080p but neither will receove or pass-thru a 1080p network broadcast signal since NONE YET EXIST!!!

I got the newest Scientific Atlanta Explorer 4250 HD
It doesn't have 1080p because there is no broadcast at present time
But it upscales to 1080p via hdmi 1.30

It is a start
