    Hoosier205 updates the graphical version at the beginning of this sticky thread (or at least he used to update this thread).

    I keep a separate PDF version updated and attach it when updated.

    The stuff on my website has been around for a few years ... I had a SD channel comparison there for a while but it got to be too much to keep up with and I don't believe many care about SD. The 2007 HD compare turned in to 2008 and 2009 and 2010. I suppose we're at 2011 now (with one channel added to each provider).

    I believe my web stuff is better on my site with regular HTML and no BBCODE. I share the information here as much as possible but I like the web format better for my website and the daily/auto update stuff (today's channel lists and uplink report archive) needs to be hosted there.

    The PDF is attached in the thread you're reading ... the last attachment is a few posts up ( http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?p=2726092#post2726092 ). I don't post that on my website.

    (Someone asked for a PDF version earlier in the thread - so I made one.)

    Good to get an update but your list still reflects Discovery Kids when it was renamed The Hub months ago now. Neither provider has it but still, why not correct it?

    Just another thought for an update-how about updating the projected dates for those channels which have not yet gone on the air? There are eight of them dated sometime in 2010 (obviously, that didn't happen). What about a newer date or simply relabel them as TBD like others on the list?

    Got better dates? Please share.

    I'm surprised that some of those channels are still on the "HD in 2010" list - especially the Starz!/Encore suite.

    I don't, but simply marking them as TBD would be a better choice, at this point, than giving them a 2010 date.

    I do actually have one better date. I believe Disney Junior goes on the air 01/01/12 as I think it replaces SoapNet. The date could be updated from the generic 2012.

    I can't find a reference to a specific date ... "January 2012" would be fair.

    Personally I don't track channels that don't have a HD feed (or are on DISH in SD for another project) ... and for the purposes of what I post in this thread, a channel needs to be on DISH or DirecTV (or with an announced date). Others can follow different standards.

    Just noticed one other change needed for hoosier's list-return CSN California to light blue, rather than yellow, as the contract dispute has been over for awhile now.

    I wasn't familiar with that channel, so I looked it up. They show Hee Haw! They score a point in my book.

    RFD is a former public interest channel ... they lost the PI status after airing commercial programming. Not a bad channel to be in HD.
