They announced ZEE TV will be in HD like 7 months ago, but still it comes in SD. These are ridiculous people. They work according to Indian Standard Time. while announcing they announced and after that no follow-up. I wish HD becomes reality one day, I am waiting waiting waiting waiting...........since too long...

The last we need is another movie or soap opera channel. I agree that Bloomberg should have been part of that.

Among Hindi movie channels, Dish Network still needs to add Star Gold, UTV Movies and Filmy. I don't understand why they won't add these channels, as they are already available on DirecTV and other cable providers (e.g., Comcast and Time Warner Cable). These channels would be more desirable to viewers than boring channels like Zee Smile. Also, Movies OK would be a great addition to Dish Network, but it would seem strange if they launched Movies OK and not Star Gold (as both have the same parent company).

We are not fortunate to know all details of these contracts. Perhaps money play the major role.

why dishnetwork, who has best channels available for south asians still missing big channels like star gold, filmy, utv movies, if they are available to other providers. zee smile no one wants. zee cinema, sat max and b4u movies just not enough as they all repeat same and same movies for years not even good block busters. hope movies-ok will be added to dishnetwork as i just checked their selection of movies and looks like nice and acceptable.

Not sure what has happened to B4U Music. But I get Zing on 808 which used to be b4U Music's slot. I get Zing on 2 channels in my lineup. B4U Music has been moved to 9xxx series. Is this being discontinued or in process of remapping to another slot? Anyone has any information?

Zee HD and Zee Telugu are now available.

Something seems weird with B4U Music. It doesn't make sense that this channel will only be available on 6224. Why only this channel? satexplorer, do you know anything about this?

Even Zee's HD quality cannot be compared to American channels' HD quality. I had my expectations too high.

No, the reason is the source programming is not in HD as much as it should be. Some of the newer soap operas are filmed to tape/video in HD, but most the other shows are not. If you look at the new stuff, it does have good picture quality.

Even the new season of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa does not appear to be filmed in HD (at least the audition parts). Not sure what will happen when they go to singing in the studio.

There is hardly a way to tell what is HD or not on this new channel.

Saregamapa 2012 looks absolutely stunning on Zee tv HD. Even the sound is great on my 5.1 surround system. I am using the Hopper DVR.
