James, you may be right, except that Comcast asserts that their subs can select from hundreds or even thousands of HD movies and HD programs that are available at any given moment -- the difference being that Comcast calls them "choices", not channels.
Comcast's claims of "choices" does have validity. As a C* sub, I can choose not only from traditional 'appointment' HD TV channels with linear (one program at a time) programming , but I can also select from a very large number of VOD programming 'choices' at any given time. For me, it's the equivalent of having the inventory of a video store right at the touch of my remote.
Now I do know what this channel is.. EPiX HD plays movies that we all like to watch like India Jones and some newer movies that have released recently.. It's all the movies the didn't want to show on Showtime..
Nat Geo Wild is on Ch: 190.. No HD though.
They were live 37 minutes earlier (when I posted that list).
All this excitement ... I forgot NASCAR was on Fox! 800 miles of racing today!
Discovery ID HD is also not yet on Dish but is available.... somewhere!
I guess the quantity count matters to someone.
On the other hand, if Charlie added PBS and The CW to all DMA's currently with some HD channels, he couldn't claim "more channels" and would "waste" all that transponder space on traditional TV as opposed to old movies available in the WalMart DVD bargain basked for 99¢.
Yeah, I know I should get excited about the Robert Taylor and George Raft movies now on TCM in HD.:sure:
I know nowbut for some reason when i posted it ,all of the earlier posts werent showing .
Do you mean NTGWD-HD is showing SD content?
Or, NTGWD-HD isn't live yet?
Sorry, at work, can not see.
Ch. 190 is the NTGWD-SD, right?
As of about 11:44am ET the HD is also available.
It's a movie channel.
...I just put on TCM (132/9523) while "They Died With Their Boots On" was showing...it appears that the SD image was sharper than HD...I switched between the two several times and the results were the same.
Yes can we have a list.
Some New customers Just might want to see what E* is offering.
To elaborate a little further, it is an American premium television network joint venture between Viacom (specifically its subdivision Paramount Pictures), MGM and Lionsgate. To quote Wikipedia:
The three studios have a large library and on the Epix web site you can see what they offer right now. The down side is the choice to form a new one means that we who wait to watch new movies until they appear on a premium channel will ultimately have another to pay for in addition to HBO, Cinemax, Showtime, Starz, etc.
You need to double check or do a check switch, I have been watching 190 in HD since it went live, and I posted at 844am. I just bet James and only because I was channel surfing, and posting at the sametime.
I was checking the guide when I saw the HD versions.
Anyways, it is there. The other place to look is in channel locks. I've locked out a few unsubscribed channels in the past. When DISH adds the channel to my subscription the lock is remembered and I don't get it.
The Atlanta area is covered with 61.5 plus 110/119 setups. With new channels being added to 72.7w, I am amazed I am seeing no sign of a campaign to get people converted to a 1000.2 WA or 1000.4 EA setup.
