2012. Well actually...2011 with Candace Bailey and Kevin Pereira as hosts of Attack Of The Show.
Add HD version:
Fox Movie Channel
Lifetime Movie Network (for the wife)
NHK World TV
Comcast Sportsnet Philadelphia, plus overflows.
Time Warner Cable Sportsnet/Deportes - Los Angeles
Comcast Sportsnet Houston
FS New Orleans subfeed.
*NBA season starts 10/30, I'd anticipate launches closer to then.
Fox Movie Channel (when available in HD)
beIN Sport en Español
Encore Action and Drama
Pac 12 Network, with football and basketball subfeeds
TVLand (don't know what is on HD in that channel)
CW HD-DNS for Alan
Is D* waiting for the full slate of Encores to launch in HD?
Overall pretty happy these days, but would like to see.....
Chiller (I think there's an HD feed, but not sure)
more Encore channels.
Nope. NBC had planned to upgrade Chiller and Sleuth (now Cloo) to HD back several years ago, but cancelled plans when the economy took a nose-dive.
And thanks to Alan for compiling the list!
You mean the man-hater channel, don't you?
Yeah, this would be a great channel to add, in HD! Nothing like some Diamond Dave and the rest of Van Halen, with their great video's. I can dig it!!!
Yes, TVLand sans the extra commercial over-runs in HD!
Never going to happen, and all the good TechTV people are better off now anyway, at least most of them.
The cycle races have some great scenery, and would be lot easier to see the cyclists in HD. Sure would be watched, as much as the Tour de France, on NBC Sports Network.
So we can change these threads to 4K Channel Anticipation in 2016?
Yeah, and after the Tour of Utah being on Fox Sports, I'd like a full time RSN.
H2, H2 and H2! And CSN Philly!
If DirecTV in fact embraces 4k in 2016 and NHK meets its reported goal to begin 8k trial broadcasts during 2020, the TV replacement cycle for enthusiasts is going to contract substantially.
Great job on the list. I have two corrections and one comment for you on the following section:
SPANISH LANGUAGE CHANNELS THAT DIRECTV CURRENTLY OFFERS IN SD, BUT NOT HD (11):
A Toda Musica
BeIN Sport Dos
Univision Deportes Network
---Directv does not offer Univision Deportes Network. I believe its only offered by Dish, Fios and ATT.
---Galavision should be on this list. Its only offered in SD.
---Telemundo (National East and West) are not offered in HD by Directv but local Telemundo affiliates are offered in HD in some markets.
IFC and ID for me please!
Well this is certainly interesting information...care of TVPredictions.com:
Which would mean they'd have to swap out all the SD boxes for HD, like they do for MPEG4 markets now, right?
I can think of one or two users here that won't like that
What about some of the non HD channels???
MPEG 4 SD??
game plan HD??? Will ESPN even offer it next year?
Center ice and NBA LP WGN OTA HD???
Center ice TSN, Rogers, CBC feeds in HD?
MLB EI WGN A HD remapping?
I assume there are a lot of contract negotiations to do by then as we'll. According to Alan's list, it looks like right now there are over 50 channels to "upgrade" to HD. With I'm sure more to come by 2016. Of course they could simply drop some of those channels to accomplish the same thing. That's probably not as likely.
So does this mean they may start locking up the rights to show the HD version of all channels as they renegotiate contracts going forward? I would think they would need to in order to be in a position in 2016 to get where they want to be.
I'm very pleased with the potential possibilities.
