It's on channel 341 and they don't broadcast in HD. I'm enjoying the new version of "From Dusk Til Dawn" it's just called El Rey.

I know it's on, I also love "From Dusk Till Dawn". I meant to say I'd love to see it in HD if available.

OK ... I'll take it 24x7 in SD widescreen. In fact, I'll take every 16x9 formatted channel available in SD widescreen until each becomes available in HD. Please and thank you!

Why is QVC narrower on Dish now??


Enjoying AT 250 HBO,

I'm googling it trying to find what services carry it in HD and I can't find any mention of HD connected with the channel. Could you give me a link?

El Rey is natively in HD when its uplinked, the SD feed is created by downconverting it at the headend. (Similar to what ESPN and Fox's entertainment and sports channels do) Some Comcast systems have it in HD.
