    ***plex (all)
    Epix (all)
    C-SPAN (all)
    The rest of Encore
    Africa
    Al Jazeera America (if it launches in HD)
    BBC World News
    Bloomberg
    FMC
    Military
    Military History
    NASA
    NHK World TV
    Ovation

    Not only is there no cinemoi HD, the channel only exists on directv at this moment.

    True.

    I have everything I watch but more is always better.

    Don't confuse those of us who now have all our recordings in HD that we think things should shut down.

    But if you don't get the premiums, it was a lackluster year. However, if you are a premium subscriber, it increased the value of your package, especially with HBO costing more than the rest.

    I don't care. Channels are channels when counting HD. I don't like half the ones we have, should try not count?

    I'm good with whatever HD we get, at this point, whether it's a channel I get or not. But I can see why someone would see a year as not being much of one, like that year.

    Though, AMC was a major addition, and a channel that we had seen a number of members here dropping DirecTV to go to Dish for it.

    I second that.....and add BBC World News HD. Directv is still very weak where world news coverage is concerned. Even a good SD (not compressed to hell) feed of BBC, Al Jazeera, DW or France 24 English would be much appreciated by those of us who wish to know what's going on in the rest of the world.

    the only good shows G4 had was Arena and Judgement Day/Reviews On the Run and I didn't care much for A.T.O.S. once it swapped over from The Screen Savers. At the end the only thing good on G4 was Sasuke

    If it airs in your market checkout the syndicated EP Daily, it's produced by the people behind G4TechTV Canada, which stuck to the Tech/Gaming format because of the conditions of their CRTC license, and includes segments from their shows like Reviews on the Run.

    A&E HD - 720p
    BIO HD - 720p
    Crime & Investigation Network HD - 720p
    History HD - 720p
    H2 HD - 1080i on DirecTV (Wiki says 720p...but not sure how accurate it is & I can't check it on Dish as the receiver doesn't do native output)
    Lifetime HD - 1080i *
    LMN HD - 1080i *

    *Previously owned by Lifetime Entertainment Services when HD feed was launched

    Also, AVSForum states they broadcast in 720p HD in The Official AVS HDTV Programming Synopsis thread in post #1, it's still listed as History International HD as well. Again though I am not sure how accurate that is.

    Interesting while watching the DirecTV Beach Bowl in the lower left corner a HubHD logo showed up. Hmmmm could the Hub be the next HD channel?
