    How long, once a local channel is uplinked "for testing", does it usually take for the channel to become available to subscribers? I see that KSCW (CW) in Wichita, KS was uplinked on February 22nd, 2012.

    Back on February 3, 2012, I emailed the station and asked why they weren't on DISH in HD and was told they they had talked to DISH "last week" and were told "soon". Of course no date was given.

    Thanks.

    There really is no usual... I believe there have been channels uplinked for testing that stayed there for a year and never became live to customers.

    Well, in this case, it turns out to be a little over a month. I was surprised to see on the uplink report for March 28th that KSCW was available to customers. Yesterday I confirmed that that channel was in fact available in HD on my 722k. :)

    I guess I'm in the 2013 time frame for dish upgrading our locals to HD. Also Our Market has been a short market(only ABC/FOX) its entire existance but last week our local ABC- WLOX went live with our areas first CBS on one of its subchannels and its no where in site on Dish. according to Wlox's site here is the latest info. from dish ,


    "DirecTV is airing a CBS feed in HD on channel 390 temporarily, but will air WLOX CBS by April 25. When we learn what channel number they are giving it and when it is available, we will let you know. We have yet to hear from DirecTV, Dish Network about placement for WLOX-CBS on their channel lineups, but we are optimistic that WLOX- CBS will soon be available on their services. WLOX- ABC is unchanged by this addition"

    Also Learned our Local Fox -WXXV will be adding NBC in July! thus giving us all 4 networks local

    I was a FSC+ subscriber as well until I dropped it and signed up for foxsoccer2go.com. It is available for 19.99 a month or 169.99 a year and you have access to a lot more games, both live and on demand. I have a Mac Mini hooked up to my TV and the picture quality is much better than the SD version of FSC+. Additionally, they have an iPhone and iPad app. No brainer for me.

    Hi,
    We are avid motocross fans. For several years, Directv fans have had HD broadcast on Fuel. If we go to a bar at 9am that will let us tune to motocross on Fuel, we can see it in HD-sad. This is not minor. The SD is so bad-the riders have 12" high numbers on their back and you can't read the 12" high numbers. Is that bad, or what?

    I hope they don't say that "enough people don't watch Fuel TV to justify it" because you do not watch Fuel unless you really want to see something specific-It is bad in SD! If it was in HD, we would watch a lot of the programming in HD.

    I think, for the price we are paying for programming, we deserve to see the available Fuel HD programming in HD, like Directv has. When is this going to happen?

    It's channel 398 in the AT 120 and above programming packages.

    Here is a description of the channel:

    FUEL TV delivers original and exclusive programs that speak to the core of the action sports lifestyle like no other network. FUEL TV reaches the youth demographics that is extremely loyal to their favorite brands and has a high consumption appetite for advanced video and data platforms.

    Thanks.

    Sorry to hear that. I believed (can't remember why) that Dish was already working on it.

    But, thanks for your efforts.

    I wish Willow TV is on HD. If you sign up for them in the internet it is in HD using my samsung TV Apps but with Dish it is not :mad:
    Also I wish Some of the South Asian channells (SUN TV network) is relayed in HD in India. Dish is monopolizing them now & why not offer in HD?:D

    I will add my vote to seeing Dish pick up the HD feed for NASA-TV.
    Could the recent channel number move be the first step towards seeing this happen?
    Thanks!

    HD can be on any channel number ... personally I feel the move is a step backwards for NASA, pushing the channel away from the news and weather channels (which are common go to channels) into a range of channels that is not so special.
