    That's the only reason I'm excited about it - I keep hearing everyone say how great "Mad Men" is but I don't watch SD and haven't rented the BDs. I'll have to see if they show reruns and see if I agree with everyone else.

    Why is the internet filled with Fanboys? I can't go to an Andoid forum without them trashing apple and vice versa. Same thing with D* and E* but obviously on the same site. Not sure if you guys remember the HDDVD and BR wars. Why are people so competetive with companies who don't give two sh*ts about them and are just trying to be profitable? Its just getting so tiresome.

    On topic, congrats to Dish customers. Who would have thought E* would get AMC HD before D* with their issues with Rainbow Media? Hopefully D* stops sitting on their hands :sure:

    At the moment "Star Trek: Generations" is playing ... SD cropped to 4:3 and HD in OAR.

    It is nice to have another OAR channel.

    About 20 years ago they had infomercials from Midnight to 6AM and had uncut movies during daytime. When they started having commercials 24/7 I stopped watching.

    I thought you had a DVR? Once I got a DVR I stopped worrying about commercials. My 1st DVR A 40Hour Tivo Stand Alone. Then the Dishplayer came along and then the 501 and 721 and 622

    Great news, Thanks Dish. Mad men was the only program left that we watch regularly that is not in HD

    Nice to see AMC; it looks like the Rainbow dispute is over; finally. Now if we could get IFC in HD; that would be a great plus.

    Dish America Silver customer and I don't see AMC HD. :( I don't even see 9529. 130 shows only as AMC SD. I am on the western arc as well.

    Dish America Silver is a HD only package? DISH probably added AMC HD to the HD 200/HD 250 packages and not Silver/Gold.

    I noticed the same thing and I have the same setup.

    I see that 9529 is on 129, which I do receive.

    I understand that it wasn't added to the HD only packages (of course it wasn't, nothing is), but what I'm confused about (and I think newsman is too) is why its not even present in the guide.
    I went to "all channels" and only the SD feed is listed at 130. Also there is no 9529, it goes from 9528-9531.
    Why is the channel not listed and just in green or red indicating that my package doesn't get it?

    I know this doesn't effect my life at all since I won't get the channel anyway, its just curious.

    P.S. I did a reset and nothing changed.

    DISH has the ability to hide channels you don't subscribe to. 9529 is marked as hidden.

    Green for instant order is another option that DISH can set on a channel. In this case, DISH has decided not to show this channel as an instant order upgrade choice.

    Hidden channels are pretty common. 9477 COOK, 9451 HBOCY, 9452 HBOZ, 9453 HBOFM, 9454 HBOSG, 9455 HBO2E, 9459 HBOLT, 9470 LIFE, 9476 FOXB, 9478 HBO-W, 9479 ACMAX, 9486 STZC, 9496 SEDGE, 9497 SK&FM, 9498 STRZW, 9500-9504 BIG10, 9505 ENCOR, 9414-9419 HDALT and 9529 AMC are all "hidden" from non-subscribers to those channels. None of the 9400-9500 range HD channels have the green "instant order" flag set.

    Same here. Stupid DirecTV. Even my cable company had AMC HD, well they had like every channel in HD but they didn't have any HR24s.

    I'm with you. Sad to see what AMC has become. I remember what they were like back in the early '90s. No commercials. No logo. No forgettable "original shows".
    Everyone else; enjoy.

    I have 110/119 and 61.5, looks like I should repoint my 61.5 to 129. I wonder why they don't add to both.

    They've been moving things around over the last few months or so. The goal is for everyone at some point, to be on a pure Eastern or Western arc. There are quite a few channels in HD that are no longer on 61.5.
