    Wow, some of these channels I've never heard of before. They actually exist in HD on other carriers?

    Not all of them. And some are in the process of being dropped by some. Example, Fios is dropping Mav TV plus a bunch of SD channels mentioned in this thread like Blue Highways.

    I'd love to see IFC HD by Jan 4th. There is a show called Portlandia starting then and it looks interesting. I'd like to get into it, but I'm not going to bother if it's just in SD.

    Believe it or not I learned of it through a banner ad in the guide. The description sounded neat so I looked into it. Too bad AMC's sister stations IFC, WE and Fuse are all still in SD.

    Interesting that banner ads in the guide promote SD shows. Sad when the resolution and clarity of the banner is far better than the show itself!

    Portlandia is actually starting their 3rd season. I've watched a couple episodes in the past but since it's in SD only and I'm not into it enough to buy the DVD or Blu-Ray I've never really gotten into it. It was pretty good from what I've seen.

    I'm hoping for H2 in the near term based on HD VOD availability. My other hope -- CSN Philadelphia -- substantially is more remote (both in terms of time and probability).

    As fellow HD snob I completely understand where you are coming from on this. However, Portlandia is one of those extremely rare instances (I watched Mad Men in SD for years) where I make an exception and watch every episode despite the fact that it's in SD. My wife and I find the show to be hilarious.

    Add Chiller HD to that list.


    TCN Philadelphia and CSN Philadelphia + is the same channel.
    CSN Houston has some CSS content and it shows up from time to time on other CSN channels.
    is HRTV HD yet??? and it's NOT A RSN channel
    For Pac-12 the likely if directv add it will be like dish main network + part time game only feeds.



    dish has Hustler HD

    My goodness. That certainly looks promising. Mathematically impossible to have a "most" without at least three total. :D

    I'm going to guess H2, Cooking, TVLand, and the two Encore channels as the adds, because the first are consistent with the recent VoD adds, and the last two beef up the higher tier programming while the yearly price increase (and yearly price increase beeyatching) is happening.
