    why dishnetwork, who has best channels available for south asians still missing big channels like star gold, filmy, utv movies, if they are available to other providers. zee smile no one wants. zee cinema, sat max and b4u movies just not enough as they all repeat same and same movies for years not even good block busters. hope movies-ok will be added to dishnetwork as i just checked their selection of movies and looks like nice and acceptable.

    Zee HD is uploaded. Should be available in 2 weeks or so.

    Not sure what ZEETE is. Could be Zee Telugu.

    592 ZEETE [International Channel] added to 118° TP 3 (SD *TEST* Hidden)
    9997 ZEETV (787 HD) added to 118° TP 32 (HD *TEST* Hidden)

    Not sure what has happened to B4U Music. But I get Zing on 808 which used to be b4U Music's slot. I get Zing on 2 channels in my lineup. B4U Music has been moved to 9xxx series. Is this being discontinued or in process of remapping to another slot? Anyone has any information?

    Zee HD and Zee Telugu are now available.

    Something seems weird with B4U Music. It doesn't make sense that this channel will only be available on 6224. Why only this channel? satexplorer, do you know anything about this?

    Even Zee's HD quality cannot be compared to American channels' HD quality. I had my expectations too high.

    No, the reason is the source programming is not in HD as much as it should be. Some of the newer soap operas are filmed to tape/video in HD, but most the other shows are not. If you look at the new stuff, it does have good picture quality.

    Even the new season of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa does not appear to be filmed in HD (at least the audition parts). Not sure what will happen when they go to singing in the studio.

    There is hardly a way to tell what is HD or not on this new channel.

    Saregamapa 2012 looks absolutely stunning on Zee tv HD. Even the sound is great on my 5.1 surround system. I am using the Hopper DVR.

    directv can't match with dishnetwork. dishnetwork has more and better channel line up. the only channel dishnetwork need to put in their line up is STAR GOLD which is number one movie channel in India as well in UK. i hope dish will bring it this year or next year. it would be easy because it is already here in usa. if enough people will request it, i am sure dish will bring it as they do always.
