    It shouldn't surprise many that Dish, would be last on the list or it wouldn't be easy for them to get a News Corp channel.

    No Fox news for D but it was never in our upcomming lists or did i miss it. D does have Fox buisness news HD though but had it for a while. If there is something i would like to see quickly in HD that would be BBC-HD

    Hey, I know I am...I can wait for Nick HD and Disney HD so my son can be happy.

    That said, if they had Game Show network HD I could drop the SD package entirely, since the wife watches that the most. Except I'd be missing my RSNs...

    Not me! I want The Travel Channel in HD. If I don't get it by next week, I'm going to pepper my Dish 500 with buckshot, write my congressman, kick the dog, and say nasty things about Charlie! :)

    Since we have rumor mills... should we also have rumor grinders? Or would a rumor grinder be the same as a rumor mill?

    :)

    Rumor grinder makes me think of an organ grinder, playing a tune while the monkey dances and collects money. I guess that fits. :lol:

    Either the world will end or Dish will add a whole bunch of National HD channels by 5/14...

    I guarantee one or the other will happen ;)

    The signs are certainly pointing that way ... 16 new TMP channels in the tables on both 61.5° and 129° (plus the six named channels renamed on Wednesday).

    But, alas, uplinked does NOT mean available. If it did Sci-Fi and USA would have been available back in December. :)

    There is a good chance that they will be made available ... especially with copies on two locations ... but they could be there just to show off to their retailers. There is NO guarantee that contracts are in place and all the t's are crossed and i's dotted.

    I didn't think of that... When I was typing, I was thinking of a pepper grinder.

    That's a strong guarantee. I really hope we see new HD then... although on the flip side, I have some bills due on the 15th, so if the world ends on 5/14 I'll save the money!

    The world ends 5/14. Never fails. That's always the way it is. After Mother's Day, but no Father's Day....

    OK, so what I'm reading on the latest uplink activity is the following HD nationals from the Charlie Chat were shown uplinked (or re-uplinked):

    From NBC Universal Group: Bravo. If they were to turn it on, the NBCU group in the Charlie Chat that included SciFi and USA would be done.

    From Disney Group: Disney, Toon Disney, ABCFamily, ESPN News. This is the complete Disney Group included in the Charlie Chat.

    From TimeWarner Group: Cartoon Network. We have CNN, but not the two premiums HBO2 and MoreMAX mentioned in the Charlie Chat from this group.

    We have been tentalized by some others being tested. But for logical marketing reasons I could see them turnng on this group soon.:rolleyes:

    Also CNBC is 'reported' content on one of the TMP channels.

    At the moment there are six named channels from the Wednesday Uplink Report and sixteen channels marked TMP from Friday. (I'm assuming that TMP1 is the same TMP1 regardless of transponder it is on and that the 5300 range will be for DISH Latino and the 3xx and 94xx numbered channels will be for the AT and standalone HD packages. TMP1 - TMP16.)

    Ten of the 16 have been mysteriously named ... "Travel Channel, TWC, CNBC, MGM, Mojo, Smithsonian, WFN (gotta have the fish), Bio, HMC and Showtime2." I'm happy to see Smithsonian, MGM and Mojo back on the list. That leaves six "mystery channels" ... add a recent report of MAX-W and 5-MAX, four left to identify (likely the other two HBOs in that?).

    But of course, all being TMP channels they could all go away next weekend just as easily as they came this weekend. The channels will be released when they are released.

    But 22 uplinks ready to turn on? The stuff for sweet dreams of HD! :)
