Having H2 and LMN VOD in HD, could this possibly mean that we'll see these channels in HD fairly soon or is that just wishful thinking? Hoping for some updates soon as to new HD channels, or is that it for this year?

Yes, 1 and 2 rolled off as will all eventually. 5 and 6 are good until 11/14


I went back and looked, yep they show up in the 'just added', I had looked in 'series', which still only shows 3 & 4.

However as of last night, the download of episode 6 is actually episode 5, even though the guide shows the ep. 6 info. (episode 5 correctly downloads episode 5). Haven't checked today.

Nice! Now if we can only get the H2 channel in HD we'll be all set.


DirecTV could have brought this in one, two years ago (however long ago). It's a matter of making it happen.

Considering the basic-cable programming appearing in the channel ranges of the 200s, 300s, and select ones in the 500s, and national sports in the 600s … I think H2 HD will be the next high-def addition. Lifetime Movie Network HD could come in at the same time. Then again, I thought that with Cooking Channel HD when DirecTV added DIY Network HD.

There are strange choices being made at DirecTV.

NEW HD VOD content:
1327 CMT
1333 MTV2
1566 Crime & Investigation (New VOD channel, ALL content is HD)

Also, I see 1 episode of Leverage on TNT VOD in HD. So it appears TNT has HD VOD content off and on as one expires a new episode here and there is added, that is the only HD content though on the VOD channel currently.

Some of the CMT/MTV2 content has the same VOD listed twice.

I also noticed that HDNet Movies now has an AXS.TV logo on it...

Just curious, but does anyone know why The Movie Channel East (554) has the exact same programming as The Movie Channel Xtra (556)?? Thought they were two completely different channels with separate programming.

There was a note on sho.com that they have problems as a result of hurricane Sandy.

Oh okay I was wondering why Showtime East HD content was also on Showcase, Sho Extreme, Beyond, Next, Women as well..... They will be able to promote Dexter and Homeland very well tonight in the Guide anyway :D

So technically right now D* only has 3 SHO/TMC channels in HD if you don't count the West coast HD feeds & the ones displaying the same content...

On linear channel 561 or the VOD channel 1561? I am seeing the correct HD Net Movies logo for both... the VOD only has a logo in the iPhone app of course but it is correct...

...I so wish they would come out with a channel like the old TechTV was I miss that.


Never going to happen, and all the good TechTV people are better off now anyway, at least most of them.


TWiT.tv Has most of the people from the TechTV days and similar programming as well


As for the topic at hand, my wishlist is:

H2
Discovery ID
TV Land
Military Channel

The VOD channel. Going to 1561 on the receiver... the VOD screen has an AXS.TV logo on it.

I see the graphics on HDNet Movies On Demand are from AXS.TV as well. I didn't notice that when I was flipping through things...
