Now that we FINALLY got LMN HD, any clue as to when TVOne HD coming on board?


That's a good one!

In tune with the point of this thread . . .

If I was to guess "Up to 20," though I'm not seriously figuring as much in 2013, perhaps TV One HD would make the cut.

I'm still at a loss why there isn't a full time HD Fox Sports Ohio channel that carries the Reds, Blue Jackets, and Cavaliers.

The other ones in test are expected within the week. After that ... "more HD is coming". When has not been stated but some in the third quarter has been mentioned. Hopefully there will be some additions between "within a week" and "third quarter". This thread is more fun when people are happy. :)

Haven't you heard, G4 is being retooled again, http://www.tv.com/ne...d-x-play-29932/ . How about bring back Tech TV?

I know there are some Western feeds aren't in HD, so if some of those were added would be great.

Even better.:sure:

Take that back, after reading that article. The old Tech TV was better, for sure.

I see little point in having western feeds in HD until everything is in HD at least once. You can always record the eastern feed and watch it at a time that is convenient for you. If there is a choice between adding something in HD that is currently only in SD versus adding a time-shifted version of something that is already available in HD, I will always be in favor of adding the new content.

I would remove the sports channels from that list as they are different contract wise.

Also put chiller HD into the list
I want CLTV / CLTV HD on direct tv.

Really looking forward to Universal Sports HD. Is that available in HD anywhere, though, or are we just wishfully hoping? With the Winter Olympics next year I'm sure they'll have some curling leading up to the Games. This is probably the only way for me to catch any non-Olympic curling.

No, I just assume that anyone who cares enough about whether a channel is HD or SD will have a DVR.

Wrong again. There's a sizable amount of DirecTV customers who care about HD but do not have a DVR.

I suppose then the question is, what is sizable? I suspect there is a much higher percentage of dvr owners in the hd base than the sd. Maybe someone has some actual numbers to post.
