    I read a rumor they're trying to maybe make a sequel...something like "Ferris at 40"

    SEPTEMBER 19=D DAY? :)

    I'm betting that a good chunk of channels will be going live on 9-19.
    A little insider info, if I'm not too late:

    Lately CSRs have been informing customers about the B Band Converters. They are guided by their computer system to "assure customers" that they do not need to be connected before 9-19. What's going on on 9-19 D*?

    Concerning the regional sports channels... If I live in a market for a few of them, will I get them all in HD?

    Cubfan - if you get the SD version you should get the matching HD channel

    I am sorry, I am usually just a lurker, so I don't know how to properly post a link or if I am even authorized to, but the list of channels at AVSForum that this thread was based on has just been updated. Some RSNs have been relabeled PPV, and some new channels have been added.

    Watching the Weather Channel and they had a promo for two new shows, "Epic Conditions" and "WeatherVentures", starting on 10/1/07 and thet say "In high definition where available".

    So to all those folks that have been saying that when D* launches The Weather Channel it will be nothing but an upconvert until next year, I say looks like you're wrong again.

    I saw that too RAD... the only problem with that is that the information regarding TWC being upconverts until next year CAME from The Weather Channel.

    Either way, even with "Epic Conditions" and "WeatherVentures," TWC will be MOSTLY upconverts until next year when they finish upgrading their studio for HD...

    I lost track of turns in the topic and wondering why it was created ? And why each time I saw something new posted here, I'm opening it ? Stupid me. :(

    Having a studio ready for HD and having the 'master control' ready can be two completly different things. You're not talking about all the hardware necessary for switching all the studio camaras and generating the graphics, just taking something that's already in HD and sending it out to the satellite, maybe they have enough in place to do that? Guess we'll just have to wait until they actually air to see who's correct.

    I agree... and I assume that's the case... but it must be a new development, because otherwise, I would have expected The Weather Channel to actually promote the shows instead of stating that it was just going to be upconverted until early next year...
