Speaking of dash 1 channel numbers, why do we still have them on the other sports packages and some RSN's? Can't they assign the HD channels to the "regular" channel numbers like they do with the full time channels? NFLST does it, why can't they do it with the others?

They use RSN remaping and some of the part time feeds / sub feeds use the -1 system.

FSSD useing -1 has to be a error maybe it will be fixed overnight.
I want CLTV / CLTV HD on direct tv.

I thought FS SD was coming as a full time HD channel? Yet in Sixto's report it says "694 FSSDHD PT" and it is still on a -1? Is the PT an error by DirecTV?


It is a bit messed up. 694-1 is showing full guide data. So, it is full time but on a -1 channel.

Even odder. While many were reporting the -1 was blacked out for the live game, I am getting the replay live on 694-1

Coolman302003,

Does Nick Jr. or Teen Nick even have HD channels? I know it was talked about before but VH1 classic doesn't have a 24/7 HD feed. Time Warner Cable has all the other ones in your list.

I'd like to see more kids programming in HD, if anything so its available on the iPad streaming. Little screens for little people.

According to a footnote to the list, if the channel is accompanied by a "^" symbol it does not have a linear HD channel as indicated.

I guess this is why they usually don't specify dates. Maybe something went wrong with the picture quality or something during testing?

My guess is that Bloomberg Television HD will probably get added by the middle of the month. I lose track; but last year we had the experience with at least one programmer having been put in test mode and not becoming officially added for a two- to three-week period.

Wikipedia.org says no.

I think Viacom just put that stuff in On Demand under the banner of those particular programmers. That there is no 24/7 of any of them. (Though I thought there was a linear HD of Nick Jr. Last December, I downloaded from On Demand a 23-minute animated program.)

ION HD and TCM HD were the ones, with ION HD being the longest wait from test to being available to subscribers.

Remember Satelliteracer never mentioned anything about Bloomberg HD was launching on April 1st with the others.

Does Nick Jr. or Teen Nick even have HD channels?

I have heard rumors on AVSForum that Viacom is tentatively planning to launch some of those in HD later this year but nothing confirmed for sure. I also read on AVSForum that TeenNick HD has been uplinked on C-Band by Viacom for about a year but no idea if there is actual HD content on there or simply upconverted, and I do not think they have any providers distributing it either.

No one has acknowledged Bloomberg HD, thus no indication as to what the timing is. It may have just been easy to add the guide entries when they did with FSSD and OWN.

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

Seems to be a lot of the same channels people keep asking for while not the most popular to certain people they are their favorites (Fox Movies, The Hub, Military). I could see Fox Movie Channel being high on the list, but not sure it would happen soon as Fox Networks is rumored to be rebranding it FX Movies so maybe after that change over.

The Hub is a channel I would really like in HD after that is my sports need/desire to see Pac 12 and DirecTV stop their arguing back and forth and work out a deal before we hit the fall. Besides that I would like to see Universal Sports in HD would probably make me want to order Sports Pack again.

Say what is this channel 288 Go TV, all infomercials. How did it get added to my "favs" list on both my recievers?

OWN HD should of been added as the number is the same as SD and that HD to SD relationship exists, but new channel numbers should not be added.
