Is VH-1 Classic available in HD? Also I think the only Encore channel remaining in HD is Drama, right?


VH-1 Classic has some HD VOD content. Not sure about the actual channel. But it would be nice to watch "That Metal Show" in HD.

Encore Love, Encore Western, Encore Suspense, Encore Drama, Encore Family


I believe Drama is the only one currently available in HD...all the rest are SD only for now.

I don't but do find it a bit funny that they don't have it. But, it does also show that there is more to carriage than just the Tango.

Lets see: Military Channel HD,Bloomberg TV HD, Reelz HD, GSN HD, Rest of the Encore Channels, We and Sundance HD, Fuse HD, Centric HD, Hub HD, MTV2 HD, USN HD, Style HD, FMC HD Take your pick and anticipate.


from this list

I want Bloomberg,Sundance,FMC maybe Fuse..and 2 local PBS stations here in NY WLIW* and WNJN to be added to the locals list..1 beams in HD the other not yet but i'd definitely want D* to add it if it ever exists..WLIW doesn't exist in HD yet..NYC has 1 major PBS station Channel 13 WNET and that is in HD..so these other PBS stations are referred to here as alternates..

as a premium sub...I'd like the remaining encore channels...however (i'm sure I'll be corrected real quick if i'm wrong...and I welcome it :) ) I dont think all the encore channels themselves even beam in HD yet..so I'll add this to my wants when they're all lit up from the Encore side..

Encore Drama is the lone channel of this group thats in HD..not yet on D*

How about some spanish channels in HD. Galavision HD, Fox Deportes HD, ESPN HD, Univision Deportes HD, Telemundo HD, and bring back GolTV HD. The HD lineup on the Directv web page shows GolTV in HD. This is not true. Please update.

Absolutely. I will glance through them usually a few minutes a day and sometimes something will catch my eye that I escalate.


On a personal note... thank you for that! :)

Of all our family series links and standalone recordings, only a few channels left: VH1 Classics, Style, and weTV.


As of last week, I have Sixto beat... only 1 (ONE) SD channel left that I have Series Links for.

4 of the 5 added to my favorites list, now they are in HD.


4 of the 5 added to mine as well! :)

Great to see the H2 Channel in HD as many Programs such as Ancient Aliens were transferred to H2 and it was SD which Sucked after watching it in HD.

Also, my wife will Love watching Robin Meade and Crew in HD on HLN and The Cooking Channel will be Great in HD!!! :hurah:

Now that we have the latest to arrive in HD, I will post my latest wish list.
Military Channel HD
Encore Drama HD
Fox Movie Channel HD
MAV TV

I also wish that Viacom would make VH1C available in HD and that D* would then put that up.

My top five remaining are:

1 Universal Sports
2 WE
3 Universal Sports
4 Military
5 Universal Sports

I have one series recording that is still SD, but it is on RFD. I think it will be a long time before we get RFD in HD, and I am not sure the program I do record will be that much better if it was in HD. I would like to have Universal Sports before the start of the Giro d'Italia, though.

1 Universal Sports
2 WE
3 Universal Sports
4 Military
5 Universal Sports


I'll agree with 1, 3 , & 5 but only if DirecTV moves Universal Sports out of the Sports Pak and in to a more basic package.

As for 2, No Thank You!

That leaves us with 4, Military and while I watch it rarely (maybe twice last year - Officer and a Movie) I wouldn't mind if it were in HD.
