Saw my first HD on Spike today. MuscleCar at 12:30 was in HD.


YES! Looks like the new shows are filmed in HD. The 'PowerBlock' intro segments were HD as well. Unfortunately, it looks as though they are adopting stretch-o-vision for the older shows. Odd that the guide doesn't indicate HD though...

Although I see various posts and press releases from Spike stating that the original "CSI" will be shown in HD, I don't see any actual listings for it in that format. IS Spike showing CSI in HD? If so, when? Thanks,

I've been watching the episodes, but not an HD one so far.

Anyone know a target date for when they WILL be running CSI in HD? Their press release certainly implied it was January 1, 2008.

CSI will be airing in HD starting in May. Right now, HD programming consists of CSI: NY, Pros vs. Joes, The Powerblock, GameTrailers TV and the Spike Guy Movies. The Ultimate Fighter and the Star Wars movies will be in HD in March, and TNA iMPACT! in May. There will be NO stretch-o-vision.

Star Wars in HD? As Yoda would probably say "See, this I gotta." Hopefully it will be the ORIGINAL TRILOGY, not I-III (well maybe they can skip the first two and start with "Revenge of The Sith".):lol:

I am watching the Spike Horsepower TV show and it says that the show is in HD, but it has the black bars on theleft and right hand sides. I have it on the HD channel and it is listed as "original format". What's up? I apologize if this has been discussed ad nauseum.

Yeah I noticed this too.. It was fine last week but the week before it was in SD.

As a side note; One of the other HD shows on Spike (Gametrailers.tv) is shot and is supposed to air in HD was also in SD last night.

I've been enjoying Pros Vs. Joes in HD the last few weeks. I love seeing those "I should of went pro" wanna bes get embarrassed.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

I've been recording every new episode of Gametrailers and less than half of them have actually been broadcast in HD. They've been advertising this new show and it's supposed to be in HD, but for some reason they have only been in HD a few times.

Anyone know why it's in HD sometimes and sometimes not?

DTV added a guide ad just before Spike so I deleted Spike from my favorites to suppress the ad. I don't watch Spike any more. :(

When were all six Star Wars movies shown? I haven't noticed them in the guide. Maybe I missed them?

Star Wars is starting April 4th.

April 4th @ 8 PM ET - The Phantom Menace
April 5th @ 8 PM ET - Attack of the Clones
April 6th @ 8 PM ET - Revenge of the Sith

and I don't know for certain but I assume they will do the same thing the next weekend with Original Trilogy since A New Hope is not airing on Spike anywhere in the next 2 weeks.

Spike's been re-mapped to 241. You may want to update series links just in case. It is still, for the moment, still being mirrored on 325.

Is Directv testing to see if Spike better fits in with the USA/FX/TNT channels than off on it's own in the 300s?

If I wasn't used to tuning into 325, this placement makes more sense than were it is now.
