Hi,

I know, you were coming here to see what channels are in HD that DirecTV is not carrying, right. Well, that is why I started this thread. I am looking for all of those channels. So here's my list (with url):

Travel Channel HD.
HBO2.
HBO Signature.
HBO Family.
HBO Comedy.
HBO Zone.
MoreMax.
ActionMax.
5StarMax.
Hallmark Movie Channel HD.
WGN America HD (this one I saw while I was in Chicago last weekend, this is the best link, sorry).
Lifetime Movie Network HD.
RFD HD.
World Fishing Network HD.
Wealth TV HD.
Outdoor Channel HD.
ABC Family HD.
Planet Green HD.
MOJO HD.
Animania HD (VOOM).
Equator HD (VOOM).
Family Room HD (VOOM).
Film Fest HD (VOOM).
Gallery HD (VOOM).
Gameplay HD (VOOM).
Kung Fu HD (VOOM).
HD News (VOOM).
Monsters HD (VOOM).
Rave HD (VOOM).
Rush HD (VOOM).
Treasure HD (VOOM).
Ultra HD (VOOM).
VOOM HD Movies (VOOM).
World Sport HD (VOOM).
Fox News HD. (I would like a better reference from Fox if possible)
Crime & Investigation Network HD.
QVC HD.
Lifetime HD.
AMC HD. (see my latest post below)
IFC HD
Mav TV HD.


Ok, this list has grown a bit. Ones I think are coming are BBC American (Robin Hood is in HD), E!, Comedy Central, and few others but I can't find anything substantial. If you find something with a decent link, I'll edit this post and put it in here (thanks!).

I'm looking at Nationals with this thread, though I feel the pain of those not fortunate enough to get their locals in HD over the satellite. I think DirecTV 11 will fix that.

I can't find an official Fox News URL. :(

BBCA and TVLand for me.

BBC America HD I could not substantiate yet, but I know Robin Hood is in HD. I will look for TVLand to see if it is in HD.

I will look up IFC, I saw information on the History Channel's site, but only that History Channel is the only one in HD.
