    DirecTV subscriber here.

    I tend to focus on basic-cable programmers' linear high definition.

    I would figure, if I was a Dish Network customer, that it's high time Charlie Ergen and company got a new contractual agreement to fulfill carriage of ABC/Disney programming of the screens of ESPN in HD. For the children, the likes of Disney HD, Disney XD HD, and with them Disney Junior HD, should also be made available.

    As for the lists of linear HD, Dish Network has DirecTV beat with the likes of The Hub HD and Oprah Winfrey Network HD, from Discovery Communications; We TV HD and Fuse HD, from AMC Networks; RFD-TV HD and Bloomberg Television HD; Style Network HD and TV One HD, as well as G4 (period) in high def, from Comcast/NBC Universal. DirecTV has Dish Network beat with the likes of the national east-coast feed of Ion Television HD; Disney Junior (period) in high def, from ABC/Disney; as well as TV Land HD, from Viacom.

    This isn't to compare Dish Network vs. DirecTV. (I realize it may seem that way. But I wasn't going to cite every programmer.) I figure this to be a guide on how to go about anticipating what may come in.

    On the DirecTV side, I figure Dish Network's carriage of The Hub HD, to name one, might make a good possibility to get added later in 2013. On the Dish Network side, I would figure that TV Land HD, also to name just one, would be a good bet in what may feasibly come in at some point in 2013.

    The only provider that I've located carrying the Military Channel in HD is Time Warner Cable. Don't understand why? It is what it is.

    My wife would like to see 9394 (KBS World) in HD. The 4:3 LBX picture on the current SD feed must have an HD source somewhere. I know that Dish carries the HD and SD feeds for TV Japan.

    I would still like to have Suprstations in HD. I've said it before. Heck, I'd settle for them in widescreen SD!

    I'm sad to see that no one wants Fuel TV in HD. Direct has it-has for years. Several times, when I call and talk to Dish, (everytime I have called-are they just trying to get me off the phone?) they tell me that they are working on it and will have it in '2 months'-never happened. We are avid followers of Supercross and Motocross motorcycle racing. The Motocross is on Fuel TV. Not only is it SD, it is very bad SD. There is something extremely degrading the broadcast. These riders have numbers one foot+ high on their backs. We can't read the numbers. Is that bad or what? If you can't read the numbers, you can't even follow the racing. Thanks, Boni

    The "two months" is off ... the normal statement is "I will submit your request for this channel". In some cases the channel comes (cases where adding the channel was already in the works?). In other cases there is no joy - one might as well request NFL Sunday Ticket and get the same positive "I will submit your request for this channel" response.

    As for Fuel TV there is a good chance that it will not exist in its current format by the end of the year. Speed TV is becoming Fox Sports 1 on August 17th. Fuel will likely becoming Fox Sports 2 - similar to ESPN and ESPN2's setup. While I am the type of viewer who wants every channel in HD I do not expect to see Fuel until the format issue settles.

    I do not believe that's true,every HD subscriber I believe wants all SD channels to be offered in HD when available I know I do and I hardly ever watch Fuel TV.The only suggestions I have is to make sure your DISH satellite antenna is aligned correctly for the best signal and to make sure your equipment is the newer DISH receivers because the newer receivers have the latest and best video chips installed.DISH cannot tell the providers what type of signal to provide and some providers are sending a 4:3 signal that if you have your HD setting to 1080i and change the format of the picture by using the * button on the remote control looks fairly decent when the signal is upconverted to 1080i,others do not.Unfortunately DISH has more basic HD channels,where DirecTV has more Sports Channels in HD,that just the way it's always been and that's one reason DISH can be a little cheaper on their programming packages.Good Luck!

    Use the * format button on your DISH remote control to change a 4:3 SD picture to different 16:9 widescreen formats.Remember to have your HD settings set to 16:9 widescreen.Good Luck!

    I am a sucker for HD, and I will be switching back to Dish from Comcast once our agreement expires in September. So I have to throw a list in for myself. Dish Network really does have one of the most appealing HD line-ups of all the providers (at least in my area), and so there aren't too many "must-haves" left for me.

    Documentary Channel HD
    FearNet HD (much better than Chiller IMO)
    Fox Sports 2 HD (Fuel HD)
    FX Movie Channel HD
    Military History Channel HD
    Smithsonian Channel HD

    BBC World News HD
    eScapes TV HD
    Fight Now TV HD
    Military Channel HD
    Russia Today America HD
    Soundtrack Channel HD (If they ever launch)
    Wealth TV HD

    Considering the premium prices we pay for premium channels, it seems a bit of a ripoff we are only getting standard def version of some channels, especially HBO which is going for a hot $18/mo.

    Also, the lack of Disney HD is beyond bizarre.

    Selfishly, I'd like VH1 Classic in HD. Big fan of That Metal Show.
