    But will it be HD? And when will it be available?

    Well it is a revenue source for DirecTV since they make commission on purchases from their subscribers

    Perhaps this explains why QVC was added in HD while the same cannot be said of Home Shopping Network. But isn't there a HSN2?

    Yes their is a HSN2. Dish network has it. Having said that, just what we don't need is another shopping channel.

    I tend to divide them into two cateogories: home-shopper programmers (HSN, QVC, Jewelry Television, ShopNBC) and infomercial programmers (the filler in the high-000s and those in the 220s after NBC Sports Network as well as in-between buffers in other areas of the DirecTV channel mapping).

    I know what you are saying. The infomercial stuff is, in the long run, for DirecTV's benefit.

    When did QVC on DirecTV become HD?

    My wife watches this all the time and I have not seen it in HD. Unless it recently changed to HD. I have a 65 inch plasma TV and the picture on QVC is awful IMO. I know that QVC has multiple channels, which channel is HD?

    Thanks

    Gosh ain't QVC enough as it is, we don't need another shopping channel, If they want to make deals then do it with Fox, to bring the rest of channels in HD, FXM HD, Fox Deportes HD or any other fox owned channels in HD.

    I hope QVC is paying to be carried for the new channel and the currently HD channel. Then I wouldn't have a problem with this, but I can't stand for another shopping channel with so many we already have HD or not.

    Channels like QVC, HSN, Jewelry TV and ShopNBC give providers commission from purchases made by their subscribers:

    As for where the bandwidth is coming from for QVC Plus, based on the transponder maps thread it's replacing one of the SD PPV channels.

    Playboy2 isn't a new launch, it's just what DirecTV is now calling Playboy's SD channel since the HD and SD feeds have different schedules.

    What is QVC Plus, is it an interactive channel or another version of QVC in SD?

    mjm76, QVC was added in HD on 8/15 but you might have to edit your favorites list to see it. You see when DirecTV converts a channel to HD... even if that channel is in your favorites list and you have hide SD duplicates turned on... you have to go in and add the HD channel and remove the SD channel.

    Thanks to this forum, we are seeing loads more HD than the average user who would know when to do that.
