    I sure wish they had a channel from NHK. I also do not speak Spanish. 私はNHKが放映を見たい

    Bainbridge...
    One would have to look at the transponder utilization. The new encoders allow 6 MPEG4 HD channels per transponder instead of 5 so it should be possible to do the math. It's a bit more complicated than that, since the number of channels set aside for sports events, PPV and testing can vary. I suspect that we are again getting quite close to the limit.

    Just what is meant by the term "linear HD"?

    There's some decent channels that should be added. Encore west, Fox Movies, Game Show Network, Reelz, the rest of the Encore channels, to name a few.

    I agree. The only downside to getting all this new HD over the years will be not keeping up with thread as much since I've pretty much gotten all I wanted in HD. I sure do miss the journey that started for me in early 2010 shortly before DTV added ESPNU, MSNBC, and a few others. That was exciting times for me. Thanks for the informative thread the last few years, guys!

    Time to set my sights on the 4k channel anticipation thread! :)

    fleckrj thanks for educating me, i'm not a cycling fan, so i wasn't aware of the cycling Grand Tours. But my point was that i thought track and field worlds would beat all cycling audience but le tour, so it would make more sense to add universal sports hd prior to track and field worlds than a non-tour cycling event. But i do appreciate taking the time to explain to us.

    Rumor has it on here that it will move to 249, next to FX, and Comedy Central will move to 250.

    Now we need HSN HD.

    I would dial that "90" back to "60" percent.

    Still lots more to go.

    Yes.

    Imagine how well Home Shopping Network will look when we finally get it in high definition.

    (As well as the rest.)
