    By previous agreement. I would imagine that back when that agreement was struck, funding wasn't as tight as it is now.

    Now the PBS affiliates are looking for any way they can to subsidize the explosion of digital channels that they now offer. They may have learned this from LIN.

    Here is the chart. I still need to correct the Voom channels, HDNet for Comcast, Outdoor 2 HD, A&E/History coming to Charter in Sep. Let me know if there are any other corrections.

    BTW, I just took the list maintained by Marcus and put it into a spreadsheet.

    Edit 1 : updated with suggested corrections.

    Edit 2 : Updated with many changes.

    Pls check AVS forum thread for details --> http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=419472

    By "announced" what do you mean? Dish will actually be lighting up a bunch of these in the next month. My guess is DirecTV has said they will carry these (as part of their "capacity" to have 150 channels, but have any dates been given? Or was it just a very vague open promise that one day they would carry these?

    AFAIK, NFL HD is very much available on Dish Network. It's often upconverted SD content, but the channel is there--9426.

    I inherited the announced channel list - but have been making modifications. By announced I'm only considering official announcements. Many of the D* channels have been officially announced (either by D* or individual provider) and those have been noted. As you see the total only comes to 50 or so (ofcourse that excludes all the west channels and RSN).

    Yes, I'll add it.

    Thats according to some folk at AVS. Do you know whether ESPSNEWS and Toons will be available everywhere or are they expected in only some locations.

    Thanks for sharing this! :)

    Just a quick note, it should be "Cablevision" in the heading, not "Cable Vision".

    When TW got the carriage agreement with Disney to carry ESPN 2 HD, the contract was also for all the future Disney owned HD channels coming in '07 and 08', so it should be system wide.

    Updated. Still haven't included Outdoor 2 HD - since I don't know who carries it.

    Not sure what they're up to, but all links I had posted in posts no. 69 and 70 have disappeared. The only thing you can find out on their website about this channel now is its program grid. The measly list of cable companies carrying it now looks like a secret. As Steve predicted in an earlier post, this HD channel may soon be ready to go off-air since nobody significant is picking it up.

    Thanks, Stuart. As new national HD channels come on line, I invite readers of this thread
    to post their new HD channel finds. Just keep in mind that the illumination of an existing
    "national" channel on a particular provider's line up does not meet the definition of a new
    national channel.

    As a matter of fact, there are many other interesting topics on the board for those willing
    to remove their provider-specific blinders.

    No.
    Probably not until it is available.

    This is actually an excellent example of a carrier announcing carriage of a channel that didn't happen. From this post back in February, 2005: http://www.satelliteguys.us/verizon-fios/25109-verizon-become-next-hd-leader.html

    Verizon (FIOS?) was going to carry Spike HD as part of its line-up. While they may have agreements, or agreements in principle, Spike TV HD is still not available 30 months later.

    Your new HD channels will be here tomorrow, or maybe the day after.


    And they say... Tomorrow never comes...
