    Smithsonian HD channel added -- thanks, purtman.

    Several new HD channels have just been added to the National HD Channel List -- see post #1.
    If you have corrections or additions to the national HD channel list, please post in this thread.

    According to my quick count, there are now about 65 national HD channels, including the seven
    network channels, but excluding the RSNs and part-time sports channels.

    Nick,

    It looks like SCIFI HD is now on, but guide does not show any HD in it for broadcasts. Hope they are. Also a few others have been added as well.

    Why would stargate atlantis NOT be in HD? I watched it Saturday after it recorded on Friday night and it looked HD to me, wide screen, 1080i light on my box... what else is there?

    Any chance that you could add the Channel Numbers to the list? I know it would help ME ... not sure if this would be beneficial to others.. I just seemt o have a hard time finding the numbers/channels when a new one is added. Just a thought.

    Thanks though -- you provide a great service to us.

    Cody, the HD channels listed in post #1 above are, for the most part, national channels
    available to all providers. As such, channel numbers would vary by provider. Most likely
    there are provider-specific HD channel lists for D & E posted in their respective forums.

    The follwing channels were added to the national HD list today, in post #1 above.

    Cartoon Network HD
    Fox Business News HD
    Fuel TV HD
    FX HD
    Speed HD

    By my quick count, there are now 67 national HD channels + 7 network HD channels, for
    a total of 74 channels that are potentially available for carriage thru multi-cannel video
    providers (MCVP). If there are channels available nationally that you want and you don't
    have, contact your provider directly.

    I'm pretty sure that Playboy HD and Spice HD went down with VOOM. My limited research suggests that they were combined in a single channel.
