    I looked all over and can't see how you found that page. Must be top secret!

    Starz! is on the main programming page (not on the breakout). :)

    It doesn't look like the site is ready for public view. Some placemarkers there.

    I don't know how he found it either, but Dish is going live with this by Feb. 1 so all they need to do is link to this page from their new home page. Not surprising the pieces are getting put up on their server.

    I noticed they advertise 25 HD channels. It appear by my count the 25 includes HBO and SHO HD movie channels. Not a bad deal it that's the case.

    I'm still confused on that.

    Theres no way they could have the premium channels in HD without also having the standard def ones, but when you click on any of the plans it does say 25 channels of HD included. I'm still assuming thats a mistake.

    FoodHD and HGTV HD are coming as well (2nd quarter) - that will be a solid 25.

    Perhaps even Starz! HD will come since it keeps slipping into their promotions. :)

    HBO + SHO will be $22.99 in the new price lists.
    (You get all the SD channels as well as the HD version of each.)

    That DishCOMM technology looks ready to banish the audit team from many people's lives as well. Only one phone jack needed for the primary receiver and then the rest link up through the power outlets....

    This may have been discussed somewhere else, but I couldn't find it. Will Universal HD be available to those who do not have the new MPEG4 receivers?

    From the HD Programming/Locals page, "Select Channels Available In HD." By "Select" do they still mean just CBS? The "click here for your area" link does not work yet. I have read some of the other threads around here and it is still unclear. I have put calls into executive CS but have not connected with anyone yet. All I want in the short term is the Super Bowl in HD.

    Is that the main/only purpose of that?

    "DISH Comm™ technology allows phone
    and audio data to be sent throughout a
    home over existing power wiring and
    requires only one phone line connection
    among all DISH Comm-enabled receivers in a home"

    What is the "audio data"?

    No, they indicated that all the new HD channels will be MPEG4 and only available for MPEG4 capable receivers. All the HD channels available today will continue to be MPEG2.

    I can't wait for HD locals. I just hope dish carrys the WGN in chicago. I can't believe direct tv doesn't. I guess if they don't I will have to keep my antenna for one channel.

    The HD-DVR for 2 TV's... it indicates a downconvert to SD. Would that mean I could get HD content converted to SD for another TV in my home (that isn't HD comp)? That is awesome!!

    HD down converted to SD for a second room is how it works.

    If you look at the mini descriptions of the packages carefully, you'll notice they all say 25 HD channels, except the platinum package. it says 27, so there is your 2 premium channels since those would require the HBO/Showtime subscriptions :) which also means they are including the 2 as yet added channels for the 25 number. And I sure hope they can add Starz, Encore and Moviechannel in HD at some point, that would be sweet!!
