Your QUICK STOP SPOT for new and special HD programming each week

DBSTalk.com IS launching an exciting new interactive HD programming feature
called "This Week in HD". We will highlight what's new and exciting in upcoming
HD programming each week. While I will post many of my own picks, we will also
draw from a variety of HD programming resources, including participating HDTV
web sites, regular contributors and our own DBSTalkers, who are welcome and
encouraged to post their HD programming finds.

As new HD channels launch and come on line, available new HD programming
will also increase, but at a geometric rate. Each newly illuminated hi-def channel
brings to your widescreen HDTV the potential of over 100 additional hours of new
and unique HD programming each week.

From HD concerts, sporting events and recently released movies to HD specials,
premieres, niche programming and live events, each week we scan the tv universe
to bring you the latest in spectacular programming in beautiful and High Definition.

Remember, DBSTalkers are welcome and encouraged to post their HD finds.

WEEK OF JULY 12-18: We start out this week with contributions from our good
friends at TVWEEK.com

HD programming picks for July 12-July 18 include "HBO World Championship Boxing", "The Blues Brothers" and "Like Water for Chocolate"

# "HBO World Championship Boxing: Margarito vs. Williams; Gatti vs. Gomez and Cintron vs. Matthysee" (HBO HD). Saturday, July 14, 9 p.m.: See the sweat fly as Margarito battles Williams battling for the WBO welterweight championship.

# "The Blues Brothers" (HD.net). Sunday, July 15, 5 p.m.: John Landis’ high-energy 1980 film, about two brothers who get their band back together to save the orphanage they grew up in, premieres in HD.

# "Like Water for Chocolate" (HD.net) Tuesday, July 17, 6:15 p.m.: The critically acclaimed Spanish-language film about a young girl in Mexico who uses her passion for food to get revenge on her mother, who refuses to let her marry.

Remember, "This Week in HD" is your QUICK STOP SPOT for the latest in
new and unique HD programming!

(Ed. Note: HD programming listed in "This Week in HD" is not provider-specific and may not be
available on all systems.)

Little Miss Sunshine, HBO HD, Airs 7/21 8:00pm Eastern ****

Described by Roger Ebert as a "gentle family satire and a classic
American road movie," this uplifting 2006 Oscar®-winner chronicles
the mishap-filled 700-mile journey-in a crumbling antique VW van-of
one wildly dysfunctional family. Their goal: to realize the dream of an
highly optimistic little girl to participate in a children's beauty pageant.

I heard the shuttle launch was moved to Wednesday so even though the last time I checked the EPG still showed tonight, I created a manual timer for tomorrow 2:30 PST.

If you want to watch some really good baseball, catch the Little League World Series. It runs from August 17th-August 26th and is being broadcast on ESPN HD, ESPN2 HD and ABC HD.

We started watching them play several years ago and, trust me, it's a lot more fun than the majors! We liked it so much that this year we attended the Western and NorthWestern regionals in San Bernardino and had a great time.:joy:

Anatomy of a Hurricane. It was on the local PBS station here in KC and will be on 12:30 a.m. CST on Wednesday. It is also scheduled to be on Saturday and Sunday. It's a 30-minute show and shows some incredible HD pix from the 2004 Hurricane season. I only caught the last five minutes, but I'm looking forward to seeing it again on the DVR. Since it's about hurricanes and I'm in KC, you can be assured it will be on other PBS stations.
