I want everything in HD - The day there isn't a SD channel left will be a good day.

According to Sixto's post, looks like Weather Mix is on its way. Now we know why they kept WN on two channels. One of them will become the Mix channel.

So they have the technology now to have 3 or more mix channels. Sports, weather, mlb, and the temporary tennis and UEFA mix channels?

Yep TV Guide Network is still around believe it or not. However these days it's a traditional cable channel and no longer has the scrolling listings with commercials playing on the top of the screen. Most of the channels programming is reruns and the like with it's biggest ratings draw (if that) is nightly reruns of the latest episode aired earlier on CBS of The Young And The Restless. So yes I can't fault you (or anyone) for really not knowing this channel exists somehow and further more in the day and age of DVR why one would even care about a rerun of something aired earlier in the day on OTA TV.

 

So why then did I include a channel that's mostly pointless in my predictions? Because it always seems like when a bunch of channels are added in HD we'll get at least one head scratcher in there. And TV Guide seems to be a perfect candidate. Me personally the only channel I really want in HD at this point is Al Jazeera America. The SD feed on DirecTV is very poor looking to say the least. Badly needs to be in HD.

 

Interestingly, the TVGN on Time Warner Cable still scrolls the listings and squishes the picture of the programming we see. It's just dreadful.


DIRECTV: Genie (HR34) w/AM21 and 1 client.

You should try pronouncing the name "arirang" with the Korean accent they use for it.

 

I'm still struggling to get it right ....

I think NWMX is Newsmax, it's a new news channel not a weather mix channel

Why am I playing for MTV1 and 2 that does not even show much music now and you want to pay more for more MTV crap.


I want CLTV / CLTV HD on direct tv.

The music channels I mentioned still play music. I'd like to see them added before they turn into reality TV.

About the new mix channel, your right... The PID is indicating mix channel, not linear video channel.

Big Brother After Dark has been moved to TVGN (away from Sho2). I'd occasionally check that out, but I bet even this summers 16th season will STILL be using the same 4:3 SD cameras. Sure they have a lot of cameras, but even all the consumer and prosumer cameras are at LEAST 720p. Shame when a cell phone takes better video than CBS Big Brother studio. Oh well that's beef to take up with them I guess.

Agree about Big Brother's lack of HD. Each season brings with it my hope that they will change-out the old cameras with newer ones. But nope. The show would be even more compelling in HD.
