There isn't a channel I regularly watch that isn't in HD. Sometimes ESPN will push the beginning of a NASCAR race over to ESPNews or ESPN Classic when there is a conflict on the advertised channel but I normally wouldn't watch those channels.

I have not seen an HD addition that I wish was not in HD. The biggest hole in DISH's HD lineup is regional sports. (The disputed ABC/Disney channels would also be considered a hole.)

Everything in HD would be the best solution. We're getting closer.

I'm just about done with the movie plexes as they collectively seem unable to bring me something interesting to watch all too often. You can only watch an episode of Davinci's Demons or Game of Thrones so many times on so many channels before it starts looking like a PPV channel.

I'd drop AEP in a heartbeat if it weren't the only way to get WFN (that seriously needs to go back to HD).

Well ...
Let's do this in groups, start with the missing channels that are currently in SD:

409-438 (or 412-01 412-42 on the Hopper) ... all the RSNs in 24/7 HD

141 ESPN U
142 ESPNews
172 Disney EAST
174 Disney XD
180 ABC Family

304 HBO 2 (West)
312 More Max
322 Showtime Extreme
323 Showtime Beyond
328 The Movie Channel Xtra (East)
333 Flix
343 Encore Action
353 Starz! Cinema
355 Starz! InBlack
358 Sundance

Perhaps add a few more that the other DBS carries (DISH has in SD):
106 TV Land
216 ION East
398 FUEL TV

Then fill in "the rest":
117 TV Guide Network
133 Fox Movie Channel
210 CSPAN
211 CSPAN 2
216 ION
286 NASA
345 Encore Drama
396 Outdoor Channel
... and everything else that has an actual HD feed that can be carried. :)

The reality of it is that DISH does not have the space to give us all of that now ... and I do not know when they will have enough space to do half of the channels listed above, let alone all of them.

The RSNs would not be impossible as the "part time" channels already consume 24 channel slots ... add a few more channels to cover the alt channels and we could have 24/7 RSNs. At least of the RSNs we have now in 24/7 SD. But RSNs are expensive (especially in satellite space) and some of the other channels on the list might be more popular than the RSNs.

the other sat system has the RSN HD 24/7 and they do a better job with the sub feeds / game only feeds with HD.


I want CLTV / CLTV HD on direct tv.

Use the * format button on your DISH remote control to change a 4:3 SD picture to different 16:9 widescreen formats.Remember to have your HD settings set to 16:9 widescreen.Good Luck! 

Nope.   Been there, tried that.  It just doesn't get it.

What if anything can be done to get DISH to move a channel from SD to HD? ...  We'd all like to have everything in HD (wouldn't we?) but is it a matter of demand that determines which of all the channels listed here gets upgraded?   Is customer noise heard in the decision making?  I personally would  like to see Pac-12 network to be full time HD (currently just shows live games in HD).  I'd also really like to see ESPNU and Universal Sports in HD.   

 

Does anyone have an idea of what factors DISH uses to make these HD selections?   And is there anything a customer can do about it?

ChileDuck,

Thanks for your input on the channels you want to see in HD, I will forward your request to have these channels put in HD and have the Pac-12 Network always showing in HD!

Thanks

No.


If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

The passes still won't get you the games that are on those channels you'd be blacked out of them.

Yeah, BeIN has some Serie A games. League Pass and MLB.TV won't help you because if you're trying to watch the Mets, Yanks, Knicks or Nets you're in their territory and will get blacked out.


"Belligerent and numerous."

Sometimes I update the Dish Network FAQ

AT200, Hopper & 360 via HDMI to Onkyo 505 to basement 42" Westy, Hopper via Comp-over-Cat5 to living room 42" Vizio with a Roku 3, Joey to Toshiba 32" LCD with a Logitech Revue. You want fries with that? Pull up to the 2nd window.
