Its on channel 542 - Looks like they took a PPV down to accomodate it. Kind of concerning since that means Dish is probably out of bandwith.

Not to nitpick, but can't we at least take the time to properly capitalize network call-signs in our thread titles?

Good point.

Still surprised E* couldn't get this one up by the first of the week.

Considered that it took DTV years to get their HD up, I'm willing to forgive Dish for being late by a few days.

I'll start thanking them when they get others up such as USA HD and SciFi HD

Nope.

Makes more sense, I wonder if it will be moving any time soon.

Watching the Yankee game in HD right now...

Lets hope Dish can keep it up!



I came home from work and my fiancee had the Yankee game on both of our HD TVs. I was griping in the bedroom about no HD then came into the living room and said, 'Why is this game widescreen? did you stretch it in here? That looks like HD!" I checked the Guide and sure enough, 139 HD!

Way to go, DISH! Thanks for listening to us!!

My thinking exactly. They already had a place tested and configured for an HD channel and proven reliable... so they just re-routed TBSHD to there so it could go up quicker. Otherwise they'd have had to test another location for a few days.

This almost has to be a rush reaction... which I suppose is both good and bad, depending on how you look at it.

I wonder if it's only on for the actual time of the playoff game and then will go blank until the next game? I don't see anything else in the Guide, do you?
