    There is no "link"

    Since you're relatively new here you probably don't know, but I'm the one who has been posting launch dates for new additions and similar channel related things here for several years. Many times long before others get wind of them. (Like the specific days AWE, OAN, Pursuit, Revolt, Comedy.tv, Justice Central, FM, AHC, Sprout/Universal Kids, FXM, RFD, Outdoor, Discovery Family and El Rey would go live, or the pending shutdown of Chiller a week before some random blog claiming to have an "exclusive" posted about it)

    The number of missing HD channels continues to decrease.

    There's not many major ones missing now: BET Her, the C-SPANs, Discovery Life, Logo, Nicktoons, Sportsman Channel, Teen Nick, TVG, UP. These are the only ones that won't be in HD after 12/27 that aren't P/I, shopping or religious channels.

    There are a few random premiums that are SD - HBO Family West, some Encore channels, and Movie Channel West - that need to be upgraded to HD, too.

    Don’t forget full time HD for Fox Sports Ohio and Cincinnati.

    I have to think that's some sort of contractual snag, especially given the other issues that one seems to have.

    I was merely referring to networks, not digging into premiums, international channels or local issues. I know some markets are still missing CW subchannels in HD, for example.

    The Burlington VT market still doesn't have their CW subchannel at all, even in SD. They got their two identical NBC affiliates on there, though, one of which is the parent of said CW. Dish even has it, in HD! I guess it's good that we're at a place that we're only able to talk about the outlyer premiums, PI, locals, and shopping for HD anticipation after all this time! Does Flix have an HD feed to add? There was actually something on there I wanted to watch the other night.

    I meant they dub English movies to Spanish, I can watch them in the regular Encore channel. Also SD sucks.

    I just love watching all those UEFA soccer playoffs in glorious SD.
    How about the rest of the nation?
    Oh yeah, they get RSN`s in HD.
    Silly me, now Directv can reward me with another price increase for subpar service.
    There is no way some contractual agreement has kept FSNOhio/Cinci in sd for this long.
    And we won`t even get started on "Where are the Blue Jackets? What is the point of 2 subchannels when they don`t get used."

    10 year contracts were the norm back in the 00s. And about 10 years ago when the rest of the FSN stations went 24/7 HD on DirecTV in 2008, FSN Ohio was still on the Rainbow uplink where the HD feed was only live during games.

    Flix and Showtime Family Zone are both in HD now, both an east and west feed.

    If you get the sports pack the other RSNs are available that have the game on. Not blacked out on those channels at all.

    I can confirm this info is 100% correct per DirecTV rep I talked to tonight.

    Besides the sports pack that someone else mentioned (not that it’s free), it would be HD on Fox Sports Go if you have a Roku, AppleTV, etc. But, yes, the best solution would be for directv to add full time HD.
