Weee!!! Thanks DishNet for another HD channel
The double boxed stuff (postage stamp) seems to be SD commercials in letterbox form. The content I was watching tonight was 16x9 full screen.
DISH Network Launches the History Channel HD
Nation's Largest HD Lineup Expanded to 39 National Channels
NEW YORK and ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Sep 4, 2007 (PrimeNewswire via COMTEX News Network) --
EchoStar Communications Corporation (NasdaqISH) and its DISH Network(r) satellite TV service today launched The History Channel HD(tm), making DISH Network the first major multichannel distributor to provide the network to viewers.

The History Channel HD is located on DISH Network Channel 9491 and is available to customers who subscribe to the DishHD programming package, now available free for six months to new DishHD customers.
Does this also include History International or is it just the History Channel?
Just The History Channel (same shows as on 120).
This is still happening.
Happening with me as well.
I watched a program last night called Universe (I think that was the name). It looked great on my 42" Panny! I did notice a couple of times where the sound was out of sync. I didn't notice it much though.
History Channel HD and Dish are working on synchronizing the feed.
Imagine all the troubles that DirecTV is going to have when they throw 80-100 channels up all at the same time. This is a train wreck waiting to happen. Stand back and watch.
Forward looking statements and all that jazz ...
:lol: Nothing beats counting chickens.
D* will be adding a dozen channels at a time - it looks like. Still going to be fun.
oof! thats gonna be ugly
and my comment on history hd - "awesome" - yeah, there is the audio sync issue for now (at least, i only noticed it on the sd programming - on the hd it was spot on) but itll be awesome to see all of that programming on hd - i didnt watch the universe yet (saving that for the weekend) - but if it looks as good as that comment show that was on afterward, im sure itll be amazing...
So how are those D* channels comming?
Pretty good! Satellite is in position and HD channels should be started soon.
So, how is History Channel HD going so far? Oh yeah....it burnt down.
E* didn't light the fire.
Right now History HD is an up-rezzing of History SD to get us used to all the up-rezzed SD channels DirecTV will foist on the public as HD.
Hmm... maybe it was someone from DirecTV that started the fire!
