Now that HD has been around for some time, we're seeing more and more reruns of HD shows
(the industry calls reruns syndication)
. Just because a show wasn't originally presented in HD doesn't mean it can't be syndicated in HD, as we've seen with Seinfeld
and more recently Star Trek: Enterprise
. Unfortunately for local broadcast stations and HD fans everywhere, additional equipment is needed to syndicate in HD. This is above and beyond what they've already acquired to pass on the network HD feed or even produce their own HD
. So, just because the show is syndicated in HD, doesn't mean you'll actually be able to enjoy it. Now we can add Two and a Half Men
to the short list of syndicated HD shows, that you may or may not have access to.
