DirecTV sees 100 HD channels, Net videos in '07
FULL ARTICLE HERE
100 HD? National HD? I could see 50 national HD networks by the end of 2007, but 100?
Now that article has a ton more info then their CES announcements.
As for 100 HD, offer all the RSN's in HD nationally and you have about 50 right there.
so all regional sports networks that broadcast in HD we wil see in HD? ie we can view yes network hd broadcasts ?
Click the link. Read the article.
Lots of fun, entertainment -- and experiments -- coming up.
Yes Network is going HD 24hours a day starting in April 2007 on Directv
Cablevision already started going 24/7 with YES-HD on Jan 1st.
They also now have SNY-HD on 24/7
I seriously doubt we will EVER see MSG-HD and FSNY-HD on Directv
They are both Owned by Cablevision-NYC
And with current equipment we'll be able to record ZERO (zip, nada nothing) hours of it reliably on either HD DVR platforms available to us.... kewl...not.
Is there any actual HD content on YES HD besides the Yankees games and whatever NBA team is on their? I've noticed I get programming on YES HD 24/7 now, but it’s just a simulcast of the regular fee of YES. No difference in content, no increase in picture quality. YES HD is channel 1047 for me, I always have 1047, but when there were no games on it, it was just blank, now it’s just a simulcast like I said.
Well, to the comment before mine....I'm sorry you are having problems with your HR20. I've had mine since it came out and only had 1 instance of problems. Maybe I'm just lucky, but I have every confidence that any program I ask it to record will be done so....but I'm getting off topic.
As someone said, add all the RSNs in HD and you get near 50. Add VOOM HD channels (as the rumor going around would have us believe) and a few new movie channels, I bet you could get to the other 50 pretty easily.....
Actually there is a very good chance.
Liberty Media bought DirecTV.
Liberty Media is in negotiations to buy Rainbow Media from Cablevision which among other channels (like Voom) includes MSG and FSNY. So if Liberty does that I think you'd see them uplinked pretty quickly to DirecTV.
Not to doubt you bonscott87, but are you SURE if Liberty Media buys Rainbow Media from Cablevision it would include MSG and FSNY ?
AS far as I know Cablevision owns these Networks and they actually own the Teams (Knicks and Rangers on MSG)
Because of this I seriously doubt MSG would be included, maybe FSNY but Not MSG.

Now thats a sexy CES announcement!!!
Yes it is. the olny thing better would be a Spring start. instead of Q3.
With that many HD channels I guess I'll need to save up for one of those 1 Terabyte Hard Drives Hitachi is coming out with. I'll need the storage for the HR20 ;^)
Water Channel? lol
There is nothing in that list that I personally would consider myself "missing".
No one will ever have every channel, it's all about demand...and those ain't in it
During the OSU vs Florida championship game last night, I saw a commercial by D* where the guy said "And soon DirecTV will have three times as many high def channels as cable." This is the first time I've heard D* actually say it. I would think it would be sooner than June if they are saying that now, but who knows?
Here is a link that talks about the upcomming national channels. It give a list and I am definatley interested in the SciFi channel.
I hope SNY-HD will be April as well. Any word??
I personally can't wait for these... (Wife wants the "Red" channels bad)
NFL Network -- SciFi Channel -- Food Network -- TBS
-- FX -- HGTV -- USA Network
