DBSTalk.com Launches National HD Channel List

"A work in progress..."


The DBSTalk.com 'National HD Channel List' is a comprehensive, one-stop listing of all "national" high-definition channels currently available on one or more national or regional providers. The list will be maintained by yours truly as edits to this initial post and will be updated from news reports of new HD channel launches, as well as from confirmed posts by DBSTalk members to this thread.

For a variety of reasons, no single provider currently carries all 'national' channels and probably never will, but as this list grows, it can be used as your resource and reference for requesting nationally-available HD channels from your provider that may be of interest to you and your family, whether your provider be DishNetwork, DirecTV or your local cable company.

The list will include national network channels, including premium movie channels designated as HD, but no local HD channels will be included in the list. The listing of HD RSNs may be more difficult for me to keep up with, but I will attempt to maintain HD RSNs in a separate list as they are reported. For the present, the list will not include PPV or VOD channels which are specific to a given provider, nor "East/West" feeds.

Interested DBSTalk members are invited to contribute news of new HD channels, make suggestions, and let me know of any additions or corrections which may be needed.

Folks, I've "rebooted" this thread because a lot of the conversation was no longer relevant. Nick's done a great job here and would be happy to pass the reins onto another forum member. Please send me a PM if you're interested.

For the record, the number of views of the original 'National HD Channel List' before the reset was 31,968.

Wow, some of this thread is really out of date (i.e. well over a year ago changes aren't reflected). Please change FSN Bay Area to Comcast SportsNet Bay Area and FSN West to Comcast SportsNet California.

Thanks for changing the two Bay Area RSN"s from FSN to Comcast SportsNet. Might I suggest alphabetizing the part-time RSN's like the other sections in the list. This makes it much easier to review the list for possible corrections or to just see what exists. Really, I guess all that you need to do is to move Comcast SportsNet California to put it just below Comcast SportsNet Bay Area.

Thanks to Steve Mehs for his corrections and his massive list, which I am still researching, and thanks again to bobl. As I said in my OP, this is a work in progress.

We are looking for someone to volunteer to take over and maintain "The National HD List", going forward. Interested members should contact moderator Stuart Sweet by PM.

Most of the channel names in the RSN list need to be brought up to date. The biggest single issue is that "FSN (region)" has become "FS (region)" on the channels owned by Fox; the ones that Liberty Media took over are still "FSN (region)."

Might also be helpful to identify each channel's region if it's not made clear by the name, e.g., "FS West (Southern CA)," "Sun Sports (Florida)," "SportsTime Ohio (Northern OH)."

I'll try to work on that portion of the list this weekend, unless someone else gets to it first...

After going through a couple of sources, I believe this to be the current list of regional sports networks that have a full-time HD channel. As with the original list, it's in groups of 5 solely to make it a bit easier to read.

Comcast SportsNet Bay Area (Northern California)
Comcast SportsNet California (Northern California)
Comcast SportsNet Chicago

Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic
Comcast SportsNet New England
Comcast SportsNet Northwest

FS Florida
FS Indiana
FS Kansas City
FS Midwest (St. Louis region)
FS North (North Central states)

FS Ohio
FS South (Southeast except Florida)
FS West (Southern California)
FS Wisconsin

Thanks for the correction -- hard to tell from way over here in California, even with DirecTV, since I don't get the Sports Pack. (My divorced parents live in Tampa and can't even agree on cable service -- Mom has Bright House, Dad has FiOS -- but this isn't exactly the kind of question I can ask either of them and expect the right answer. :D )

You can now add Epix to the list of National HD channels. It launches in October and has an agreement with Fios.

It's a premium network from Viacom, Lionsgate and MGM.

This is the 3rd attempt to launch this service, the previous 2 failed, and the involved studios have changed at least once... you might want to wait until it actually sends a signal thru OR FIOS starts taking orders.
