Just found out that the 'Fight for Life' is only available in HD to those that have already the HD ticket. What a load of BS. So i would have to pay $39.95 and then another $10 on top to see it in HD. I'm sure they could of just done it in HD for everyone especially with the price so high.
I'm pretty sure it's the card that decides if you have access to view it, so presuming you buy online or over the phone it should be fine (I assume that there's no STB channel upgrade ability on third party stuff)
