    I don't even think Mavtv is offered in sd, isn't it one of those HD only channels?

    Looking at its programming schedule, MAVTV holds limited interest for me but absolutely none if only available in SD.

    Yes, because you are such a reliable source of information other than that quoted from this website.

    If you are actually Swanni, you should be ashamed to come here. Your reporting has basically shut down a solid source of information we used to have.

    I suspect that MAVTV will be in HD eventually, but perhaps at the time of the initial launch. There was at least one recent addition (During the time that the Viacom channels were dark) that was launched in SD with the HD following a couple of months later.

    That was actually the ABC/Disney Disney Junior. It joined the lineup, in SD, last July. In August, the linear HD came in.

    Channel 219 seems a bit odd given the networks recent push to air more non-sports content.

    Still waiting patiently for HorseracingTV (open space on ch. 603). I really hope DirecTV, HRTV, and TVG can at the very least start talking, and maybe can work out an agreement. We've already waited far, far too long. Please, please put HRTV on DirecTV (ch. 603).

    True, it doesn't. That wouldn't give me much comfort however, because if it was they'd be more likely to say so. PR types are not trained to write PRs that go "WAY EXCITING NEW THING in a resolution you won't watch". They'd be drummed out of the guild.

    +1 for Universal Sports. There still is a lot more cycling this season, and qualifying for the 2014 Winter Olympic Games will be here before you know it.

    MAVTV is one of the last hold outs on my, "I Want List". Looking forward to it.
