Now that DTV is adding more Showtime HD channels can DISH be far behind? I've been wondering since the recent addition of HBO, MAX and Starz HD channels why Showtime was left out.

I'm guessing after E*11 goes live. I doubt they have any legal issues with CBS, who owns Showtime, since they added CBS CS

I looked at other carriers. Showtime offers multiple HD channels and many other carriers have them, I counted over 10 Showtime HD for some. Last I heard DISH was in a hurry to launch HD channels because DirecTV is killing it this year and DISH has a lot of catching up to do... It is strange DISH launched more HBO and Starz and no more Showtime. They need to pick up the pace, the year is almost over and we are still waiting.

Who is this "everyone" that has them?

Time Warner Cable customers don't have them.
Last I looked DirecTV doesn't have them, at least not yet.
DirecTV - 6 Showtime HD Channels
Showtime HD
Showtime Extreme HD
Showtime Showcase HD
Showtime West HD
Showtime 2 HD
TMC HD

So is that your "everyone"?

DirecTV has 6 of them in HD... You seemed to be implying that everyone but Dish had all 10, or at least more than the 1 that Dish has right now... but DirecTV doesn't have them all, apparently, and I'm not personally aware of anyone else (perhaps a cable or FIOS that is not available where I live) that has any others.

I would like to have them myself... I was just curious about the "everyone" to see if there really were other companies carrying these HD channels to apply pressure to Dish. If "everyone" isn't carrying them, then Dish will be harder to pressure.

When they some more Showtime HD I might drop to AT 200 because I don't watch VS or soccer, tennis.

And THIS is the reason why Dish is being slow to add them, IMHO!
