    They cannot add any more religious channels. They have a non-compete contract with SkyAngel barring them.

    I definetely think dish should add the remaining 11 Voom channels, which will be coming in 3 months or so.. And they definetely need to add the remaining MAJOR HD networks such as TMC-HD, CINEMAX-HD, ENCORE-HD, and IN-HD 1, IN-HD 2... Add those channels for us HD addicts and i am sure we shall be very content..

    Umm yeah, I doubt that. If Dish were to go and add all those HD channels you said, you addicts would still find something to b*tch about to feed your fix. The addict part you definitely have correct. Every time Dish adds HD, you all complain that it still isn't enough. ;)

    Agreed. E* could add a dozen channels and people would still demand more or threaten to go to cable/D*.

    I will go out on a limb and say that by next summer ESPN2 HD and ABC HD will be available. This is because the World Cupp Soccer 2006 is going to be broadcasted on HD. All English language games are exclusively on ESPN, ESPN2 and ABC. While Univision and Galavison will show the same games in Spanish.

    Well Slam i think you are very wrong, I just switched from Adelphia which had 12 hd channels including locals.. And now with Dish, i have 24 but 2 don't come in for some reason NBA-HD, NFL-HD, but still i think most HD fans like myself that are with dish now are Very happy and i don't hear anyone ever complaining about lack of hd content just picture quality issues with some channels. And yes all us HD fans do want more HD movie channels but don't hear anyone saying they'll leave if more channels don't show up immediately.. And i sure hope Dish doesn't waste any of their satellite space on trying to pipe threw local channels that broadcast in HD, complete waste i think! Bring the remaining BASIC HD CHANNELS.. Remaining 11 voom channels coming in January, and hope dish will put some iceing on the cake and add INHD1, INHD2, EncoreHD, CinemaxHD, TMC-HD..

    I'm wrong? This site is full of people continually complaining because dish hasn't added this HD channel or that HD channel. Dish has a lot of HD now (though I am not wasting my money on it as of yet) and there are people that are complaining that they haven't added the other part of the Voom package, movie channels, this channel, that channel. Then they turn around when Dish does add something and ask if it is work the $5 increase or whatever it was, or just flat our complain that it wasn't fair that Dish charged extra for what they added. Maybe look around the site a bit of you actually think that ANYONE EVER has complained about the lack of HD since Dish added Voom. :)
