    Didn't the deal the MLB extra innings mention an MLB HD channel next year? I also thought I read about NBA HD too.

    Do we want to mention all the Sunday Ticket games and all of MLB games in HD for 2008?

    MLB channel launches in 2009 but I'm not sure about HD.

    Is NBA HD a full time or part time channel? I know we get games every once in awhile on 95, same as Versus. I haven't heard on NBA channel on DirecTV full time yet.

    There are a few other channels that I have no info on getting carried on DirecTV such as Outdoor, Wealth, and MoJo (I doubt this one will get on.)

    Cant seem to find a press release for it but I could swear that I read somewhere then when the Big Ten Network starts up there would also be an HD feed and that D* would carry that as well. Maybe Im not looking in the right places.

    Here's a link to a SI story:

    http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/20...05/bigten.network.ap/index.html?eref=si_ncaaf

    Says the SD channel will be on DirecTV in August, but no indication of HD yet.

    What is the Big Ten Network?

    Launching in August 2007, the Big Ten Network is a new national cable/satellite programming service dedicated to covering both the athletic and academic content of the Big Ten Conference. Showcasing a wide array of sports as well as original programming produced by the conference's 11 institutions, the Big Ten Network will operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The Big Ten Network will be made available to all cable and satellite carriers and distributors nationwide. Most events and programs will be produced in High-Definition television (HDTV).

    In addition to traditional distribution through cable and satellite, select Big Ten Network content will also be made available through alternative media platforms such as the Internet, iPods, cell phones and/or other emerging technologies.

    Programming on the Big Ten Network will include:

    * 35+ football games per season
    * At least 105 regular season men's basketball games
    * At least 55 regular season women's basketball games
    * Big Ten championship events
    * Archived Big Ten events, including bowl games
    * 170 Olympic sporting events
    * Coaches' shows
    * 660 hours of institutional programming


    Just dont see any mention about D* carriage but I cant imagine why not.

    Hopefully we'll see more official info and press releases from DirecTV on more upcoming HD channels after a successful launch and orbital placement of DirecTV in June.

    From what I've heard there will be some in-house produced HD channels from DirecTV also.

    The Weather Channel won't be ready until 2008. That release came out recently.

    Not the case. The channel will still launch with DirecTV in September as planned. At first it will be upconverted content and will gradually move to all HD by mid-2008. At that point the SD channel will be a donconversion of the HD channel.

    PBS does this REALLY well for LB programing not in HD and it looks wonderful. I'm sure it will look great even if it's not true HD at the start.

    I'll add it to the list of upcoming HD not formally announced to be carried by DirecTV. When we get an absolute statement I'll move it up.
