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?


If I scroll through to future times I have all the programming to come.

New guy here - but I've been reading the various topics on here for the past few months. The addition of TBS-HD is a great response by E* to D*

What I love best is the fact that it was done in an almost top secret manner - way to go! It makes me anticipate for tomorrow, and the next, and the next...

The guys on AVS are saying...

Effective today, October 5, 2007, DISH Network launched TBS HD into
America's Top 100 with DishHD & higher on channel 9499*. HD customers with
an MPEG4 box will see TBS HD map down next to TBS SD on channel 139.

DISH Network Channel:
9499

Satellite:Satellite:
61.5/129

Packages:
AT100 (and above) with DishHD


* - TBS HD initially launched at a temporary position of channel 542. The
launch at channel 9499 will take place on 10/10/07.

Wow! Incredible this happened so quickly. Anyone still think E* doesn't care
about getting available HD for their subs?

One thing is for sure, Dish DOES listen to their subscribers, unlike another satellite service that shall remain nameless. :whistle:

I wonder if this means more HD channels are on their way on 10/10??...maybe like the NHL Network...9492 thru 9298 would be prime spots for more HD....

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


They could have.

Well, it's mapped down to Ch. 139 and shows up in the "HD only" channel guide. I wouldn't think this would occur if it were a temporary phenomenon?

It is easier to find with the map down. Hopefully it will stay.

My first thought was that this might be temporary for the Baseball playoffs... but since that should be when the channel is most expensive, I can't think of why TBS would negotiate a short-window carriage if Dish was going to yank it right after baseball... as there would be less incentive for Dish to add it for a while after that.

So, logistically, it really only make sense if this is a permanent thing. Probably using the temp channel to get it on-board today... which makes things look temporary.. but I would be surprised if this channel went away now that it is up.

The only thing worse than not adding TBSHD when people wanted it would be to add it for them and then take it away after a couple of weeks.

As long as it STAYS in HD I don't see any reason why it shouldn't stay in the lineup.

If it turns into a stretchovision channel with very little HD it can go away. :)

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


ditto. It is cool that they gave us TBS so fast though.

I've noticed when I've seen a chanel using "stretchovision", that looks better compared to when I take my TV remote and make a normal SD picture look widescreen.
