    It's been tagged for several weeks. It's still in SD.

    To those in the know...is there any chance at all of ever getting AHC in HD?

    Anyone truly "in the know" would not be allowed to comment. I see no reason not to expect it happening, but as to whether that's imminent or years away who can tell.

    Without knowing the reason why it isn't HD already, i.e. contractual, financial, audience size, there's no way to even make an educated guess. It will happen when it happens, not before :)

    Seems we've been asking for these for a long time in HD:

    FX Movie Channel
    AHC
    NASA

    Not holding my breath as D* seems to have no absolutely interest in adding any more national non-premium channels... been quite a few years.

    You always come in this thread every few months repeating this bogus claim when it's simply not true at all...

    Not counting international premiums like SBS and MBC Drama, the last time we got a new HD premium movie channel was actually back in January 2013 when they added Encore Action HD.

    This is what we've gotten since then:
    01/13: TV Land, LMN, ID, HLN, Cooking Channel, IFC and H2 (now Viceland)
    03/13: Univision Deportes
    04/13: Bloomberg, OWN and FS San Diego
    05/13: Sportsmix
    08/13: QVC, Galavision, BeIN Espanol and ESPN Deportes
    12/13: WeatherNation
    08/14: SEC Network
    09/14: Reelz and Ovation
    11/14: Root Sports Southwest
    12/14: MTV2
    01/15: ESPN Goal Line/Bases Loaded, Fusion, Longhorn and mun2 (now Universo)
    03/15: WeTV, BBC World News and Sundance
    05/15: Fox Deportes
    06/15: Nick Jr
    08/15: ESPN College Extra
    09/15: Fuse
    11/15: Aspire (and the now defunct Al Jazeera America)
    12/15: Revolt, Comedy.TV and Justice Central
    06/16: FM and GSN
    09/16: One World Sports (now Eleven Sports)
    11/16: Oxygen
    12/16: FS Wisconsin and FS Oklahoma
    03/17: Pursuit
    04/17: One America News and AWE (A week before you made this same bogus claim in the last thread)
    06/17: El Rey and Sprout (Less than two weeks ago)
    07/17: Olympic Channel (Coming Saturday)



    They're also currently in the process of a bunch of swaps that when complete will free up space for at least 30 additional HD channels, as opposed to right now where we're down to about 3 HD Cinema placeholders after the two most recent additions used channels 126 and 128. (Don't hold your breath for NASA though, it's a P/I channel)

    Just noticed yesterday that AHC is now available on my Roku. Using my Directv credentials I can now watch it live in HD. I have 2 Ultra's and 3 Roku TVs. I have tried up to 3 live feeds at one time so far.

    HD VOD is usually a sign the channel will be going HD in the near future.
