    So I'm watching AC Milan game, FSC says "you are watching in HD". It's not. Obviously Dish hasn't flicked the switch yet... :mad::mad::mad::mad:

    Well they haven't flipped the switch yet, so you are getting SD via SD. Just finished watching Arsnel lose to Woman U, they keep saying HD, but its not. Pretty little blackout bars makes you wonder whats going on in the backroom, at Dish though, as it like it should be ready for Primetime. Checked the 9k's and no FSC up there yet, so right now no HD for FSC.
    Looks like one of those sneak launchs we will all start getting BBC and FSC midday one day this week, they have done this before.

    On Feb 10th FSC HD will be added to Dish Network's Top 250 and above on channels 149 and 877, according to the link above.

    YES
    I would be doing handstands and backflips if I could. This is great news.
    Was thrown when I went to the website, as it looked more like the request, but after putting in Zip and provider the it should the info, thiis GREAT to see.

    The site might change, but I did notice that when you select, Time Warner, Direct, and U-Verse, it has the request info page. Looks like Dish was 1st on a sports package for a change.

    That's not what the site is saying! It says that FSC is available in 149 which is the SD channel and that they are working to bring the HD version!

    Strange, very Strange, earlier it showed Dish as HD with the Feb 10 launch Date.
    I tried to do a copy paste and it wouldn't let me, didn't take a shot of the webpage as
    I was to happy. Did check out Direct, TW and Uverse, and the all showed it was work in progress type of thing, but Dish showed Feb 10th. Just like the other person posted.

    Maybe Dish just wants to reserve its announcement for a big splash of some kind.

    You have my condolences.














    :p

    On a serious note, I wonder if the Fox Soccer Plus addition to DISH lineup will be automatically tied to this change as well (whenver it happens).

    No condolences needed. We all have our favorite flavor. I enjoy my games immensely. The EPL in whole isn't as attractive to me. I do enjoy watching the EPL's top 4 just as I do all of the great European leagues (especially Spain and Germany), however Serie A is the league I love from top to bottom and grew up following from childhood (thanks to my dad).

    yes they changed it. See the difference between selecting Dish vs a Different carrier in your area. Screens are different Dish has no REQUEST, all others do.

    If it is like all the other HD channels the HD will be mapped to the same channel number as the SD. There will be a 149 and a 149 HD. That's so as to not confuse us old guys with different numbers :p

    The mapdown channels are Great, granted some don't use them at all. I prefer the Mapdowns.

    Good catch. Hopefully FSC just jumped the gun and it is coming soon anyway.

    As for the mapdown, yes there should be one as the other HDs we already have but the 877 channel is currently used for Dish Latino customers so the actual channel for the HD version should be a different number.
