I thought all new channels were going to be in HD.

 

 

MAV TV will not be in HD at launch:
http://www.tvpredict.../dnew053013.htm

 

I suspect that MAVTV will be in HD eventually, but perhaps at the time of the initial launch.  There was at least one recent addition (During the time that the Viacom channels were dark)  that was launched in SD with the HD following a couple of months later.

That was actually the ABC/Disney Disney Junior. It joined the lineup, in SD, last July. In August, the linear HD came in.

Channel 219 seems a bit odd given the networks recent push to air more non-sports content.

Theres still space

65? CSS
657 CSN Philly
658 TCN Philly or FSN Philly
674 CSN Houston
689 CSN NW
690 Dodgers Channel

Still waiting patiently for HorseracingTV (open space on ch. 603). I really hope DirecTV, HRTV, and TVG can at the very least start talking, and maybe can work out an agreement. We've already waited far, far too long. Please, please put HRTV on DirecTV (ch. 603).

True, it doesn't. That wouldn't give me much comfort however, because if it was they'd be more likely to say so.  PR types are not trained to write PRs that go "WAY EXCITING NEW THING in a resolution you won't watch".  They'd be drummed out of the guild.

+1 for Universal Sports.  There still is a lot more cycling this season, and qualifying for the 2014 Winter Olympic Games will be here before you know it.

Demand means you will leave for another provider if they do not meet that demand.

Who has it?

According to SR in the MAVTV thread, it will only be in SD. Hopefully, we can expect the HD version in the not to distant future.

Have they changed on the receivers and if so, when?
The DirecTV website guide is updated (although there is no logo for Movie Max and the Univision logo is used for Cinemax Latino).
