    The current issue of Ski Magazine(Nov) contains an ad for The Ski Channel, launching this season on cable and satellite. No mention of Directv in the ad. I've used the search function here with no hits. Anyone know anymore details about this(like when)? FWIW, it's about time!

    Have not heard of it. Could be awesome if it is in HD.

    I love watching snowboarding, skiing, etc. in HD, especially back country.

    Maybe we could drop a couple of shopping channels, lol.

    After looking at their website a little more, it's launching on 3 cable networks and looks like it will be all VOD. They've got a great looking line up of programming though:

    And before anyone asks, I have no connection with them.

    Per their website they are the best thing ever. If it comes to D* I'd check it out.

    That would be worse, shopping channels bring in income instead of taking it away like other channels ;)
