    For anyone interested, Dish just turned on HD feeds of IFC, WE and Fuse.

    East...
    Cool, more HD is always a good thing. I occasionally will find myself watching something on IFC.

    Of these... I was looking forward to IFC and Sundance... I haven't looked, but wonder why Sundance isn't HD yet? I know it was part of an uplink a couple of weeks back, so we assumed it was in testing... so I was expecting four HD channels not just the 3.

    Still, more is better!

    For Chicago locals viewers there's great news. WTTW, our main PBS station, is showing HD in my guide this morning. Long overdue so thank you DISH.

    Chicago locals went dark last night at the end of Letterman for scheduled maintenance. Not happy that due to Letterman's usual overrun of his time slot they cut off Buddy Guy less than a minute after he began playing, but that's not really DISH's fault.

    Not sure what other locals switched to HD. WCIU is shown as HD but I can't recall whether it was before.

    Yes, it does look like the older shows like Roseanne are stretched. The original programming may actually be HD, though.

    You expect her NOT to have stretch marks?

    WCIU WAS already in HD for sometime now...
    Other Chicago locals just now switched to HD include WYIN-PBS, as well as the 3 full-power Spanish channels 44, 60 & 66.
    I'm surprised they didn't also switch WYCC to HD as well...considering D* carries them in HD already.

    (interestingly, D* does NOT carry WYIN-56 in HD, but instead carries subchannel 56.3 Lakeshore Kids - presumably, this is what the station elected in lieu of the primary channel ONLY in HD)

    At some point, yes... but the shopping channels pay to be carried so they should be welcomed. If you don't like a channel, you don't have to watch it.

    Great! I like a lot of stuff on IFC but the SD-ness was a deal breaker.

    I'm assuming you mean the AT200 package. DIY has always been in the AT250 except when it was in free preview a few times.

    Great news! I often see movies on IFC that I would like to watch, but never did because it wasn't in HD.
