As I recall, when color TV came out, it was initially only a network
phenomenon (and only one network at that -- NBC). Local color took
quite a few years to take hold. In Boston, WHDH-TV channel 5 did
local color when it came on in 1957. I don't know when the other
stations started doing it. But I believe Red Sox games were still in
B&W. Even network news didn't go color until around the mid-1960s.
So I imagine the same thing will be true of HDTV.
