I think it was around Christmas 2001, and SHOHD and DiscoveryHD are the only ones they have added. Oops, hello ESPN-HD was also added.
While the line-up is not what I would call robust I do find that I use the service for about 4 hours per week, except during hockey season when I watch crappy games I would never otherwise watch because they are in HD, which is about like being 15 rows up on ESPN and 50 rows up on HDNet.
Scott has confirmed that the latter half of the NFL season will be ALL HD for NFLST subs. D* will provide no info on movie channels such as StarzHD, TMCHD and others.
Hey Jason! Loved your movie, looking forward to the sequel, but has anyone ever told you that you look like Matt Damon?!
To answer your question, the answer was last July when DirecTV added HDNet Movies, ESPN HD and Discovery HD Theater and the HD package debuted. Before that HDNet was free to all with a HD receiver. A few months after this happened (September if I remember correctly), Dish Network added a HD package of the same channels. They already had Discovery HD Theater for $7.95 a month.
Correct he IS, I remember how pissed off I got that the Stanley Cup was on ESPN in HD and D* did not have ESPNHD. The CUp is decided the 1st week of June, it was like 3 weeks after that.
LOL then this year ABC did the cup and I still didn't get it becuase ABC is the one OTA station I am not picking up! Sure enough, now next year it looks like everyone is heading to the world hockey league due to the CBA problems ... so I'll get NO HOCKEY!!!
