How about NBC Sports, just seen a quick commercial for it on MSNBC, supposedly 'coming January 2nd'. With the 2012 Olympics from London getting closer, it would be great to have that channel in HD.

I assume that Dish would have that since it is just Versus, Channel 151, being renamed.

You already have it. It's known as Versus until the name change in January.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

Found this in my TV Guide magazine, in part;on January 2 it will undergo an extreme makeover. It's going to be radically different over time says Jon Miller, the president of programming, who is building what he calls a full-service sports network. New events include major league soccer games starting in March and this summer's olympic games. Original programming will be highlighted by a series of Bob Costas interview shows and town hall specials.

New to Dish... Any chance that there will be the addition of any more local markets in HD this coming year? More specifically, the Tyler, TX/Lufkin, TX market?

All other competitors satellite and cable have the local networks in HD, which is a setback for Dish. I plan to use OTA signal until HD is available, but it can be spotty at times.

Personally, I'm surprised that we still don't have all the Cinemax channels in HD given they're actually revenue-producing for Dish.

Good point... It is time to retire this one and start a new one.
