Yes but it costs extra. For the price I dropped the HiDef network feeds and kept the reg. feeds because not many network shows seem to be in high def.

Yes and No is the correct answer. You can get the SD DNS Networks from BOTH NY and LA. You can also get the HD DNS Networks from EITHER NY or LA. This is based upon your service address. If you are a West Coaster you get West HD programing.
There's nothing special about filing out the DNS waiver except that you can fax it to 208-363-6444 along with your vehicle registration and you will get the service much faster than if you mail it in.

Why do you say this? Almost all prime time network shows are in hi-def.

I agree that most prime time shows are in HD, but I find many other times, the shows are recorded in SD and broadcast in HD.

I have found a SD show broadcast in HD looks better than it does in a SD broadcast.

I'm late into this discussion, but, I have to ask. Does a program recorded in SD, and broadcasted in HD, show-up as HD or enhanced SD?

You will receive it as HD as that's the way it's broadcast, regardless of how it was recorded.

Obviously, it will not look as good as a program both recorded and broadcast in HD.

Not sure what you mean by enhanced SD?

Enhanced SD, aka EDTV or Progressive Scan, is an interim step in which standard def video is de-interlaced, filtered and displayed all at once rather than half on each scan of the display. It is noticeably better than SDTV in display quality. EDTV also supports the 16x9 format screen.

Here's a more complete explanation:
EDTV vs HDTV
