I was reading a rumor that Dish maybe adding HD channels tomorrow. Anybody else read this rumor, and how true is it? DIY-HD will be a nice addon, if true.

The other "guys" predict:

DIY HD
Univision HD
Telefuture West HD
and EPIX2 HD.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

That would be the first HD channel addition that I didn't really care about, although "Sweat Equity" in HD wouldn't be bad on the eyes.

Yes I am in love with Amy Matthews.

DIY HD
Univision HD
Telefuture West HD
and EPIX2 HD.

Not a bad list ... there are a couple of others that could light up any week (QVC, Outdoor, Investigation Discovery).

TeleFutura west is a decent addition as it is in AT200 and for east coast viewers will provide a time shift.

Now now now. You know I hate the numbers game, but this has been a good few months. Dish has added good mix of Watchable HD channels with real HD content for the most part. They have made the Platinum a worthy option for a change, which worries me, but oh well, on that one.

Channels mix, Dish has added has had something for everybody so for.

Where are they getting all the bandwidth for these channels? I don't follow dish very closely. Have they put any HD birds up since they got rid of Voom?

Yes. DISH has put several satellites into service in the past two years.

Is this anything more than last week's rumor with a new date???

The rumor changed based on new test channels. The move of the three Platinum HD channels provided the 5/5/10 date. This week the Team Summit is ongoing and the slate for those three channel moves can go away.

Anything is possible. Other than 24/7 RSNs is there anything that DISH customers are desperate to see added?

EPIX2 does seem to be a NEW movie channel not just a West feed of EPIX1.
