    But not HSN HD along with QVC HD?!

    I think it's going to happen. Just a matter of when.


    And welcome to DBSTalk.com.

    So QVC vs. HSN is as divisive as Ford vs. Chevy or even Republicans vs. Democrats? ;-)

    even more so. Watch "In the Kitchen with David" on QVC and you will see why HSN is the minor leagues baby!

    Both HSN HD and QVC HD look great in linear high def. I saw them both, last year (or it may have been 2011), on a display from AT&T U-verse and Comcast.

    I think they're not such high priority, with DirecTV, but that they will come in. No one apparently can say how many more linear high definition programming will get added in 2013 by DirecTV. If we get up to five more, I wouldn't bet on either of them.

    My wife would love QVC in HD. Fortunately for me she is largely just watching and not buying.

    "All your channels are belong to HD!"

    Unfortunately, not all channels are provided by the channel owner in HD in the first place at the current time.

    The hosts on QVC do not yell at you, like the hosts on HSN do.

    I'm with you. What providers currently carry FMC in HD?

    It launched last year. According to AVSForums HD channel list Brighthouse is the only provider carrying it.

    I can't find any other providers.

    I'm not sure it qualifies as ridiculous. It's been out less than a year and it seems only one provider carries it.

    There may be some, but I don't know anyone that watches it. It didn't even make our favorite list.

    Oh, I'd definitely like to have FMC HD too, but I don't watch FMC today because I won't watch non-HD movie channels (I've tried --my eyes, they burn, and I stop quickly). I wouldn't consider it "ridiculous" that we don't have it yet tho, because the HD version is so new.

    From Alan Gordon's list @ http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?p=3153832#post3153832 I suspect the following (if we get up to five more HD in 2013):

    235 Style Network HD
    540 Encore Drama HD
    5xx RetroPlex HD
    5xx IndiePlex HD

    6xx Comcast SportsNet Houston HD

    The other programming mentioned goes beyond my thinking we'll not see a number in excess of five. I haven't rule out anything. Not Pac-12 Network HD. Not more basic-cable programming's linear high def. But after the rollout of seven basic-cable and one premium-movie programmers' HD, just in January, it would be mindblowing if we end up something like ten more HD (by the time 2013 ends).
