    No.

    At this point nobody knows about future new HD channels for AK/HI.
    Dish has yet to upgrade the MPEG2 HD channels on 110w to MPEG4 and Echo 11 probably won't be active at 110w until after the Olympics at the earliest.

    Once those 2 things happen, more may be known.

    i found a link to the CBS sports channel website that said as of right now, it is just a stretch version of the SD channel. supposedly they will be airing HD when football season starts. first game is 8/31- valdosta st. against ft. valley st.

    I've seen a major improvement on TNT's PQ, maybe the MPEG2 to MPEG4 conversion happened without anyone noticing it.

    The various Uplink Activity threads on the DBS sites would have a change that would look like:

    Since this is a positive perception, it is a good place to point out that people's assessment of "PQ of Dish HD channels" comes simply from watching one or two programs, during which they say to themselves "this looks good" or "this looks bad". They almost never take into account the varying quality of the source material broadcast by the channels themselves.

    I remember not too long ago they missed the change of some other channels for about two days. So....

    I've been keeping track of the Uplink threads for about 18 months and don't remember any such incident... do you have a channel name ?

    Do we have any idea regarding the 4000 channels for HD? Is the plan to one night switch off all the 9400 HD channels and direct everyone to the 4000s?
