Though it may not be the best source … Zap2It.com, at this time, lists all but beIN Sport HD as being carried in high def.

264 BBC America HD
283 Nat Geo Wild HD
289 Disney Junior HD

305 Ion Television—East HD

Gol TV, in both SD and HD, is still listed at chs. 426 and 620.

We'll find out in a little more than three hours.

After these five, I'm anticipating Pac-12 Network HD.

DIRECTV to Add 5 HD Channels Today?

By Swanni (08.15.2012)
@ http://www.tvpredict...nelsd081512.htm

Normally, DIRECTV launches new HD channels at 6 a.m. ET, but as of 6:14 a.m. today, the satcaster had yet to add the new channels. beIn Sport says on its Twitter page that DIRECTV will add its channel at 7:30 p.m. ET so it's possible the satcaster will add all the new channels at that time.

When I use Google the article is displayed on his home page. When I use IE it's not. Strange.
