    Your QUICK STOP SPOT for new and special HD programming each week

    DBSTalk.com IS launching an exciting new interactive HD programming feature
    called "This Week in HD". We will highlight what's new and exciting in upcoming
    HD programming each week. While I will post many of my own picks, we will also
    draw from a variety of HD programming resources, including participating HDTV
    web sites, regular contributors and our own DBSTalkers, who are welcome and
    encouraged to post their HD programming finds.

    As new HD channels launch and come on line, available new HD programming
    will also increase, but at a geometric rate. Each newly illuminated hi-def channel
    brings to your widescreen HDTV the potential of over 100 additional hours of new
    and unique HD programming each week.

    From HD concerts, sporting events and recently released movies to HD specials,
    premieres, niche programming and live events, each week we scan the tv universe
    to bring you the latest in spectacular programming in beautiful and High Definition.

    Remember, DBSTalkers are welcome and encouraged to post their HD finds.

    WEEK OF JULY 12-18: We start out this week with contributions from our good

    Little Miss Sunshine, HBO HD, Airs 7/21 8:00pm Eastern ****

    Described by Roger Ebert as a "gentle family satire and a classic
    American road movie," this uplifting 2006 Oscar®-winner chronicles
    the mishap-filled 700-mile journey-in a crumbling antique VW van-of
    one wildly dysfunctional family. Their goal: to realize the dream of an
    highly optimistic little girl to participate in a children's beauty pageant.

    I heard the shuttle launch was moved to Wednesday so even though the last time I checked the EPG still showed tonight, I created a manual timer for tomorrow 2:30 PST.

    If you want to watch some really good baseball, catch the Little League World Series. It runs from August 17th-August 26th and is being broadcast on ESPN HD, ESPN2 HD and ABC HD.

    We started watching them play several years ago and, trust me, it's a lot more fun than the majors! We liked it so much that this year we attended the Western and NorthWestern regionals in San Bernardino and had a great time.:joy:

    Anatomy of a Hurricane. It was on the local PBS station here in KC and will be on 12:30 a.m. CST on Wednesday. It is also scheduled to be on Saturday and Sunday. It's a 30-minute show and shows some incredible HD pix from the 2004 Hurricane season. I only caught the last five minutes, but I'm looking forward to seeing it again on the DVR. Since it's about hurricanes and I'm in KC, you can be assured it will be on other PBS stations.
