Remember how we told you that switched digital video was enabling more and more cable carriers to add more HD channels? Case, meet point.

As the nationwide commitment to HD news continues to blossom this week, Kansas City's own NBC affiliate (KSHB-TV) has too made the switch.

Although the 2008 MLB season is well underway, we suppose Cox subscribers in Topeka can't complain with being able to catch at least some of the 88 Royals games that are slated to air in high-def on FSN Kansas City.
