From DCRTV.COM:
The Mid-Atlantic Sports Network, the television home of the Washington Nationals and the Baltimore Orioles, will launch a high-definition overflow channel in the spring of 2010. MASN2-HD will allow the network to televise every Orioles and Nationals game live and in high-def throughout the season. The majority of MASN's cable and satellite affiliates will be prepared to carry the channel for the 2010 MLB campaign throughout the network's seven-state television territory, MASN says. Nationals and Orioles game replays will still appear on the network's flagship high-definition channel, MASN-HD. "O's Xtra" and "Nats Xtra," the network's exclusive pregame and postgame shows, will be televised in HD live and on location from the ballpark during every home game for both teams. In 2010, MASN2-HD will carry 130 live baseball games, with another 190 on MASN-HD.

So add another HD sports channel to the list, MASN2-HD (and we still don't even have MASN-HD yet).

Boy! If Dish has to broadcast every mickey mouse (small m's on purpose) HD channel from anywhere in the country, they'll need 50 satellites each with a gazillion TP's.

Don't forget, the only important HD channels are the ones I want to watch. Those channels are must carry, everything else is a wast of bandwidth. At least, that's the opinion most HD aficionados share. No one cares if the market for the channel is small, if they want to watch.

Well said. I could get by with only 8 or 10 more HD channels to go with the 100 or so that I now have!:)

On a more serious note, the 2 new sats Dish is putting up next year (or so) should help a lot with the capacity issues. We will still see the battles over carry charges even when the capacity is there.

Thanks DBSOgre for this thread, and for keeping it updated. This is a nice public service for the Forum regulars which is sincerely appreciated.

Best regards,

Well, I guess as of today, this thread needs an update. Still plenty more to go.

hope they don't add those .tv channels before they add all the others or ever, had those on FIOS and they are just endless loops of the same programing. If you watch it for a day you have seen pretty much everything for the year.

Hey, don't complain about networks that had endless loops of identical programming, you'll upset the Voom people.:D:D

Thought I might give another go at an update, with slightly reshuffled categories.

You might consider this less compete, as I removed some channels that make less difference, such as the FiOS controlled .TV channels, and west coast versions of premium channels. Thanks to Adam, who started this list. Feel free to correct.

Enjoy!

No where I've seen. I'm not even sure they are available at all.

Nope - just looked at the Encore spawn stations. They aren't currently available in HD other than Encore.

Not sure about all the Cinemaxes either, but I want the Max channels we don't have, even if only in SD. They look great. They can remove the myriad of shopping channels and put some of these on instead. :up

All 26 HBO/MAX channels are available in HD and as far as I know only FIOS carries them all.

Technically Indieplex and Retroplex HD channels are Encore so at least part of the Encore suite is in HD already other than Encore.

Actually, Indie and Retro are Starz channels (as are Encore), as well as their parent channel, Movieplex. All owned by Liberty (odd DirecTV has so few of these).

It also occurs to me that I left of a rumored channel coming, Shorts HD.

They are all the Starz family of channels. Movieplex is just a different Encore channel a different day of the week. While FIOS mistakenly labeled them Starz Indieplex and Starz Retroplex in the guide, they were Encore channels on their own promos. Different providers will market them differently as well.

The Starz website seems to show them as operated independently of Encore.

Starz - Networks - Starz, Encore & MoviePlex Premium Movie Channels
MoviePlex
Encore

But it is hardly a major point.:)

Yeah, doesn't really matter. The important thing is that providers start picking all these channels up as they come out. After having DirecTV and FIOS and then moving and being stuck with just DirecTV, I am jonesing for some good HD. Cannot wait until I can get FIOS back. It was nice to get all the HBO/MAX channels in HD and they seemed to have intentions of adding the Encore channels when they come, as well as the Starz channels. DirecTV only has the E/W flagship of HBO/MAX and no Encore HD by comparison.
