    Hey all,

    I didnt see this posted anywhere else, and its not listed in the HD thread either, but I was looking through the Guide and noticed A&E HD when I was getting ready to watch The Glades tonight. I hadnt noticed the channel was up and working before, was I asleep at the wheel, or is this new??

    I think it was one of the first in 2007 on D10.

    Official Directv press release states A&E HD started on Oct 15, 2007. I'm sure the test channels were up a few weeks before this.

    IIRC, that list includes everything that went live on SEP 26, OCT 3, OCT 4, OCT 10, and OCT 15...but I could be wrong about that. :D

    Are you sure you're not confusing A&E with AMC?

    Since The Glades isn't on AMC, probably not.

    You should call D* and say that nobody told you A&E was in HD and you should get 20 bucks off your bill for two years.

    I remember A&E was in the first group of test channels from D10 and it looked good. Back in those days, we compared the old mpeg2hd to current mpeg4hd.
