As far as I know there are no current cable or satellite providers in North America that provide HD content in 1080p.... although I think I saw a story a while back about one satellite company in the US that was trying it.

Old news...

Actually this is old news for the both their satellite systems broadcast in 1080p.

However, since Networks don't yet broadcast in 1080p, it's limited to PPV and "on demand" programming.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – July 31, 2008 – DISH Network Corporation today set the bar for the next-generation HD standard by becoming the first in the pay-TV industry to offer high definition programming in 1080p, the highest and best HD resolution available.

As the leader in HD, DIRECTV now brings you the latest in HD technology: 1080p. The same HD format as Blu-ray Discs, 1080p delivers a picture that's even sharper and smoother than 1080i, especially for movies. The hottest titles are now available in 1080p on DirecTV on Demand.
