I am curious as to when more National HD channels will be added. Any thoughts anyone?

Dish is a lost cause now, who knows when


Starting to wonder if they care. Another perspective though, Cox in my area sucks so bad. They just added LifetimeHD but claim itll be end of summer before getting SciFI and USA. Talk about behind the learning curve.

As soon as Directv adds Norflok hdlils, Ill be rethinking my tv services.

You aren't missing anything really. Those three Viacom channels (offered currently on DirecTV) don't offer much, if any, HD yet. I brought this up in another post actually, when I first signed up with DirecTV. I noticed no HD in the guide for any of them or their other music channel, CMT. Some viewers chimed in and said it won't be until late fall or winter when they start airing much, if any HD. So, you aren't missing anything, yet.

I think they need to spiff up the quality of the bit rate of what they have first and use that as an advertisement point. Am I alone in wanting quality rather than quantity? All these companies wave their junk around about how many channels they have, It would be refreshing to see an ad that simply states their video quality is better than the other.

MSNBC maybe? It was on Charlie's recently added chart yesterday but other than that, no mention of it. We will see Wednesday afternoon.

I'm also in the Hbg dma and left Dish because I was tired of waiting for local HD. My antenna was not strong enough to get them reliably. So I've moved on to Direct.
