    The thread is "DirecTV vs Dish Network" and has a long history of discussing channels regardless of carrier.

    It is advised that if a DISH channel is mention that it should be noted in the post (similar to the way someone might comment in the DirecTV HD anticipation thread that Comcast or some other carrier got a channel they want on DirecTV). It will lessen the confusion when someone says something is uplinked if they say which provider.

    Los...
    Got it, thanks.

    One of my browser views was cutting out the title after "South Asian Indian Channels ... " and didn't notice the ellipsis.

    Sorry ... :blush:

    TV ASIA is listed on dish site as HD for weeks now, but it is not available yet. I remember they were testing it last month. Any one has any news.

    I hope Dish converts SONY and AAPKA COLORS in HD Soon. It would be great to see Big Boss and Kaun banega karorepati in HD. Does anyone know if there is any recent plan to convert them into HD in Dish? We all waited for 1 year for ZEE HD, but then Willow, TV Asia and Star Plus HD came very soon (did nt expect them), hopefully other channels will get converted into HD soon (at least less than a year).

    I was ahead of myself. STAR is now exclusive on Dish. Say bye bye to STAR on DirecTV 2004-2013.

    2 new channels debut on DirecTV. I see spin-offs! Zee Lehme opposite of Zee TV retro and Zee Cafe. Zee Bollywood more like Zing and Zee Gold.

    Nopes, I still do not see SONY in HD, but that would be nice and then only aapkacolors left to be in HD.

    Also, wondering why 24 is not being telecasted in USA, I thought it started in India in aapkacolors.
