Picture is great... content so far, not so great... 3 country music videos in a row.

I HATE country music!!!

The content is a nice mixture imo. MTV, VH1 and CMT programming in HD.

Ah, excellent, a mix. This is great, maybe broaden people's horizons a bit.

They seemed to be showing a bunch of country music so I changed it... then I turned it back right at the end of "Where'd You Go" by Fort Minor... I love that song but I missed it!!! Aggh!!! :mad:

I'd like to point out that Britney Spears' self-destruct performance should be on at 1am.

Nothing like watching a career end in 1080i. :D

So, all the videos I've seen so far are 4:3. Gnarls Barkely in 4:3. Now some chick on a stool in 4:3.

Wonder if any of the vids will be 16:9.

Oh yeah and I agree, HD not too friendly to the 40+ old artists.

Whoops! I spoke to soon! Pearl Jam's Life Wasted just came on in 16:9. Looks like it's up converted to HD. Pretty cool though.

Nice to see a channel dedicated to videos again instead of Real World Peoria Illinois or something.

Addendum: now, U2's Vertigo in 16:9. Style of vid doesn't really show off the HD, but the picture quality on other parts of the programming is gooooood looking.

The already brought it back. Bon Jovi did an Unplugged earlier this year. It's being shown later today.

I set up Bruce Springteen & Dixie Chicks Storytellers, which are older shows, but will hopefully look good.

Probably not. There were issues with MHD that caused a delay...it was supposed to be on yesterday.

If any of you are remotely Goo Goo Dolls fans, I highly recommend recording a live show which is going to air at 10 eastern. Its fantastic!
46 and 2 are just ahead of me.

Was anyone watching at the exact time they switched over?

Did they play 'Video Killed The Radio Star'?

That would have been cool.


nice.

Thanks. Will keep an eye out.

They were just in the Rockies. Beautiful in HD.

Looks like a very well done channel so far.

For years and years I've dreamed of a quality music channel in HD w/ DD -- now we have it!! :joy: :joy: :joy:

MHD commercials are worth watching just for the effects. Goo Goo Dolls coming on now. Never heard them before, but the sound quality is awesome. PQ is great. And the audio is so good that it lets my Lexicon really do it's thing. THIS is what I paid for!
