    With the contract renewal 2 years ago with news corp, I doubt they'll add FMC HD, unless D** is surprising us, Or it has nothing to do with contracts but possibly shifting channels around.

    There are a few channels that if we had HD simulcasts, I might have SLs set up for them (Reelz, etc.), but as I've stated before, The CW* is the only SD channel with Series Links set up in my household, so outside of the CW DNS feeds being upgraded to HD, I'm not really in any hurry for anything.

    Below would be a list of the channels I'd eventually like though.



    MOST WANTED (HD duplicates) ADDITIONS

    CW HD-DNS
    Reelz Channel
    The Hub
    Fox Movie Channel


    EVENTUAL LIKE TO HAVE (HD duplicates)

    Logo
    Gospel Music Channel
    Ovation TV
    TV Guide Channel
    TVOne
    NASA TV
    Centric
    Fuse


    HD EXTRA PACKAGE ADDITION LIKES

    FearNet
    FUNimation Channel


    * I'm still hoping that DirecTV will add my local CW affiliate in HD sometime this year, thereby lowering my interest in the DNS feeds greatly, but I wrote an e-mail to two different people at my local affiliate at the first of the year asking for an updated timetable as to when this year said affiliate plans to go HD, so I can go ahead and put in a request to DirecTV, but so far, I haven't heard back from either of them... :(

    I'm looking forward to Fox Movie Channel HD, MavTV, Military Channel HD and Encore Drama HD being available soon.

    I wish Viacom would put VH1 Classic up in HD

    Speaking of dash 1 channel numbers, why do we still have them on the other sports packages and some RSN's? Can't they assign the HD channels to the "regular" channel numbers like they do with the full time channels? NFLST does it, why can't they do it with the others?

    When ST did it, it had to do with all channels having HD. If the baseball games are not 100% guaranteed to all be HD, they can't do it because hiding SD channels would hide games. Certainly true for NHL where Canadian games are SD.

    Yep, G4 re-brands to Esquire Network on April 22nd.

    It's owned by Comcast (who owns NBC, USA, SyFy, etc) and lots of old shows from those nets will be showing up on Esquire including reruns of Burn Notice, Psych and Parks and Recreation. The original programming they will launch at the end of the month includes a cooking competition show called Knife Fight that sounds like a knock-off of the Food Network's Chopped.

    Oh, and Jimmy Fallon's show will air one week later at 7pm on Esquire.

    They use RSN remaping and some of the part time feeds / sub feeds use the -1 system.

    FSSD useing -1 has to be a error maybe it will be fixed overnight.

    It is a bit messed up. 694-1 is showing full guide data. So, it is full time but on a -1 channel.

    Even odder. While many were reporting the -1 was blacked out for the live game, I am getting the replay live on 694-1

    Coolman302003,

    Does Nick Jr. or Teen Nick even have HD channels? I know it was talked about before but VH1 classic doesn't have a 24/7 HD feed. Time Warner Cable has all the other ones in your list.

    I'd like to see more kids programming in HD, if anything so its available on the iPad streaming. Little screens for little people.

    According to a footnote to the list, if the channel is accompanied by a "^" symbol it does not have a linear HD channel as indicated.
