It was uplnked but never saw it going live.  I guess it's not coming in HD.
 
No new channels as well.  Any updates, satexplorer?


Yep it is in HD . Watching it since the past couple of days on Dish. What a transformation to watch Ashoka in HD as compared to the inferior SD?

Aapka Color's Facebook Cover page & their Twitter both state the following. This means it's "Coming Soon on Sling". Not sure how "soon" it is.

 

Aapka Colors, your favorite channel, is now in HD on DISH & Coming Soon in HD on SLING! pic.twitter.com/l2EYAhdvMU

I just noticed that Aapka Colors HD is available on Sling now. I'm not sure when it became available, because I'm pretty sure it wasn't over the weekend, but it is letting me go back to programs that aired on Friday, July 3. The difference in quality is night and day. :D

Now that AT&T and DirecTV merged, do you think it's possible that the South Asian channels that appear on U-Verse may appear on D*

As a side note, Colors HD now has embedded English subtitles in its programming, similar to Star Plus HD and Zee TV HD. Meanwhile, Sony HD continues to have optional closed captions.

Any news/updates on any upcoming addition to the South Asian package?  An extra music channel would be nice.  @SatExplorer, do you have any information?

Dish latest addition is Raj Channels (Tamil). No info on those channels.

 

Wait and see either Diwali or 4th Quarter this year if DirecTV is acquiring uVerse's Hindi channels Aapka Colors, Zee TV, SET and the possible return of Star Plus? I don't see DirecTV advertisting current Hindi channels online or anywhere. Only channel is Willow Cricket. Can DirecTV really afford South Asian channels at the moment?

 

I see important messages on current channels:

2001 Zee Lahme

2006 MTV India

2007 Zee Bollywood

2008 Sahara Filmy

2012 UTV Movies International

The HindiDirect package was discontinued on September 30th, they haven't been accepting new subscribers for it since April 2014

Also, as we saw with Pac-12, U-Verse carrying something doesn't mean DirecTV is automatically going to pick it up.

My bad! Typical me I haven't been to the 3rd floor lately to watch HindiDirect. Channel 2024 is all alone now. :D I'll take the HindiDirect disappearance as a grain of salt. HindiDirect debut in Diwali 2004 so much as happen because of competition. DirecTV Star channels were exclusive until 2008. HindiDirect picture quality was great. Although, they did keep the color saturation mid low.

satexplorer, There used to be a channel called Radio City which gave a nice feel about Indian radio.  Do you know if they are thinking of starting such channel again?

It would be cool if DIRECTV integrated the South Asian channels from U-Verse. That way, I can drop Sling
