I guess TVLAND wasn't part of the deal. CC is a better channel anyway.
U-verse is useless!
CMT has another called CMT Pure Country which plays coiunty video. I had that channel when I had U-verse. No HD. Just alerting. I've never watched CMT. They changed formats too much for me.
HD channels available at 61.5° and 129°:
* Spike 9506/5303/168
* CMT 9493/5318/166
* MTV 9484/5321/160
* CMDY 9485/5317/107
* NICK 9416/5340/170
* VH1 9507/5319/162
Vh1 has Rock of love in Hd, saw it in Hd last night.
They also have " I love money " in hd on right now. Nice quality video.
If you guys watch MTVHD, you'll see 'The Real World', 'Real World/Road Rules Challenge' and a couple of their newer shows in HD and look quite nice. They still don't show 'The Hills' or 'The City' in HD which is dissappointing but I still record those shows from the MTVHD.
So many think that folks will stop complaining.:sure:
To begin with, I didn't see the point of adding the Viacom/MTV channels as they don't offer much HD programming. Then I thought that adding Nick and MTV to the TurboHD packages would make them more marketable, so it makes some sense. Now I find out they aren't available to the TurboHD packages!
Yeah Jon Stewart and SpongBob are somewhat sharper in the upverted 4:3 SD format. But I haven't seen any digital surround sound from MTV, VH1, or CMT, so its back to Palladia for music lovers right now.
What, again, was the point of adding to Dish Network's net loss for this right now?
EDIT: I found the answer to my question on another thread. The point was to p*ss off this customer and many more like him:
Yeah, that was Charlie's sole reason for existing...
Well, it certainly isn't smart retail marketing.
Yeah, I know....:beatdeadhorse:
Friendly Moderator reminder... This is not the Dish vs DirecTV thread. Be happy about Viacom HD channels, or complain about the lack of actual HD on them instead... but let's not have the 1001st Dish vs DirecTV thread.
aww.. but they are so much fun!
I totally agree that CMT sucks now; they've gone the way of MTV and basically are not even a music channel any more; they just play redneck variety shows. HOWEVER, they do still have top-20 countdown, a few hours of videos each day etc. Sadly these are NOT in HD even though this is supposedly an HD channel.
Maybe a little clearer than the SD channel, but not HD. What I've seen is a 4x3 SD channel being transmitted digitally is all, not 16x9 and not HD resolution. I've not yet seen anything except 4x3. (And yes, I understand HD is not just 16x9, thank you very much.)
I really don't care much about all this "new HD" hoopla and who has the most HD, and am 99% happy with what we already have, but I like watching HD videos often, and was really excited about CMT HD. Alas, I'll have to stick to recording Paladia at 3am, and fast forwarding through the 90% crap to get to the few good videos. Thank God for Paladia, still the only channel that really shows music in HD.
I wish GAC would go HD, but I don't think that's even in the cards right now.
Well you got the stations, you yelled about, little HD content as you might expect. I don't think you can blame Charlie for that.:shrug:
I posted the press release here.
Since we already had a good discussion in this thread, I closed the press release thread and put a link to this discussion.
I created the press release thread on its own, since it also mentioned the launch of BET HD as well today.. though I can't say as I've seen that one live on my receiver.
It's amusing that whatever it is we didn't know about this (when and what packages) seems to be true for Darryl and his other brother Darryl who handle the web site and didn't know it either as there is no mention of, say, Comedy Central in the TurboHD web page.
Survival is all about marketing.:nono2:
Is BET HD active? It shows in my guide but it's in red. I have Everything Package plus Gold and Platium HD.
On satellite guys some one wrote that they are getting
BET HD and it is StretchoVision, thinks Dish is just upconverting
BET SD and that BET HD does not exist yet.
Supernatural and Smallville are fantastic in HD. Some of the best PQ I've seen. I love my antenna and my 722.
Now getting BET HD after I had a tech chat
What did the Tech say? Because mine still shows as red.
