Hey everybody. I'm glad this list has been well received. I wanted to reply to a few posts and update / organize the list. A lot of these aren't available anywhere yet. They have just announced official plans to launch in HD. Some of these may not even launch. Iceberg, I have NO interest in QVC HD or HSN HD but I figured that it's a list of everything not available...not just crap the majority of us don't want. I put channels not launching for awhile because Dish Network (like DirecTV) could feasibly strike a deal for any of these channels well before their launch and just wait to launch them.

Great list. You should also show the count and add the count number to the thread title. That way, we put a little pressure on Dish, which likes to tout how many HD channels they have. Seems they don't have about as many as they have.

um, couple of thoughts

1. if a channel says Oct 08 or 1q 09 how the hell can Dish carry it?
2. you really want QVC and HSN in HD? Good lord that would really start the "I cant believe Dish is carrying this crap" threads to a whole new level

Speed HD has disappointing market penetration. I figured with all the NASCAR stuff they air they'd be picked up immediately, yet they've been broadcasting since February and have about ten subscribers.

I want my truck races in HD!

Good job on making this list.

I think it's more important to know what we as DISH subscriber's don't have rather than comparing channel counts.

Hey guys. This is (as far as I know from researching) a list of all current and upcoming HD channels without a deal with Dish Network. I figured it would be a nice guide. Any new updates on channel launches, I'll update this thing. I am starting to miss Voom, so I wanted to see what all other options there were since I SERIOUSLY doubt Voom will be back on Dish without a court order. Any thoughts or corrections on any of these? I want Crime & Investigation Network any way I can get it.

AMEN.

Were it not for the apparent inability of E* to play nice with FOX and vice-versa, we would probably have already had it. :(

Great List!

It would have been a good list if it wasn't cluttered with all the Voom channels.

We know about them - there are 10,000 posts about them - they've already been on Dish - Dish owns part of the company.

Also, Iceberg's comments about channels not yet launched is quite appropriate.

So, please break it up into three separate sub-lists:

- Voom Channels

- Channels currently available and never on Dish

- Channels not yet launched

I'll second that and move to have this thread made a sticky. This is good information that isn't necessarily readily available in a single source.
