Not in the guide yet. But looking good here!!!
Do a switch check and it will force a Fresh Guide Download.
Can Bronze HD package can get it?
It should as their SD version is available in the HDBronze
What's being shown right now?
Are they mirroring the standard definition version of the Food Network programming? In which case, does that mean that they have to show the content pillar-boxed when they don't have an HD version available (ala Espn HD)? Or are they showing a completely separate programming feed with its own schedule (ala Discovery HD)?
I'm watching it now. It's been up for at least two hours now.
Per the online program schedules it is separate. I'm not home to play with my receiver.
And for those of you that have watched any amount of HGTV HD live as opposed to DVR'd.. whether voluntarily or forcefully on account of the wife.. when you tune to this new Food TV HD channel dont be fooled. It really is Food TV.
You'll just think it's HGTV HD because they have those same lame P.S. commercials that play over and over and over.
Not surprisingly because they're obviously both Scripps.. but ya.
The guide showed up shortly after I made the above post without user intervention. I have been waiting a long time for this channel!!!
Channels show up without intervention (unless you need to add them to your favorites list). The guide information requires a fresh download except for the current and next program. If you don't intervene you should have guide info tomorrow.
They have 2 different programs on right now and the guide shows different programs for the next couple of hours so the HD channel is not a sumulcast of the SD channel.
The guide data here just showed up. However, it's only the upcoming hours worth. Beyond that it says no info. I guess I will need to do a switch check.
30 hd channels now on Dish , and counting.
30 "national" hd channels. Many more locals.
This is pretty significant stuff (adding Food HD) why isn't their a "Sticky" not announcing it on the main page?? Maybe a moderator can help us with that??
Official press release
DISH Network(TM) Expands High Definition Programming Lineup to 30 Channels; Food Network HD Now Available to DISH Network Customers
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. & NEW YORK, Aug 17, 2006 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- EchoStar Communications Corporation (Nasdaq: DISH) and its DISH Network(TM) satellite TV service today announced the launch of Food Network HD. This addition brings DISH Network's total national HD channel lineup to 30 channels -- the most comprehensive in the pay-TV industry.
As the first national provider of Food Network HD, DISH Network now offers subscribers their favorite Food Network programs such as "Boy Meets Grill," "Everyday Italian" and more in dazzling high definition.
"The addition of Food Network HD helps further compliment our industry-leading lineup of high definition programming," said Eric Sahl, senior vice president of Programming for DISH Network. "DISH Network offers twice as many national HD channels as most other providers, allowing customers to enjoy a better TV watching experience."
"Watching colorful personalities at work in the kitchen such as Bobby Flay and Giada De Laurentiis in high definition takes cooking to a whole new level," said John Baird, executive vice president for affiliate sales and marketing for Scripps Networks, the parent company of Food Network. "Food should be experienced like this in HD, and DISH Network is helping us to deliver this experience to viewers across the country."
Food Network HD is located on DISH Network Channel 9462 and is available to customers who subscribe to the DishHD Bronze programming package ($29.99 for 10 months) or above. DISH Network's DishHD packages offer customers more than 200 hours a day of HD content from the nation's top programmers.
New DISH Network subscribers will also receive free standard professional installation in up to four rooms, a free DVR or HD receiver upgrade and no equipment to buy, and a choice of premium movie package free for three months (HBO, Showtime, Starz or Cinemax).
For more information about DISH Network and the DishHD programming packages, call 800-333-DISH (3474), visit www.dishnetwork.com, or visit your local DISH Network retailer.
Ok I'm over the excitement.
Hopefully RSN HD, INHD, and a few surprises. RSN HD is announced as coming.
RSN HDs? 10 of them.
Hopefully "very very soon" turns into "now available" now that E* mentioned adding them.
They actually previously announced 11, but on the tech forum they seem to have lost one. Hopefully he just misspoke. And the intent for a bakers' dozen next year.
