NGHD is the new HD channel I want most. I know NG is producing all of their shows in HD now, but I don't think anyone carries it yet.

My guess is they will announce and launch it during Team Summit.

Team Summit is E*'s (Echostar, Dish Network) annual shin-dig for all the retailers/partners. They announce new stuff, and what's coming down the pike, as well as generally shmooze their folks.

Scott will be there :)

It's next week, AFAIK.

I've put NGC-HD above Disc and Equator. I'm very much looking forward to this channel. After that its Turner Classic Movies, and SpeedTV-HD (or that Fox-hd) that I'll be waiting for.

I too am looking forward to NGHD, but the one my wife can't wait for is FoodHD.

Wasn't the HD subforum brought back to have HD discussions?

Equator's PQ is not as good as DiscHD. I definitely hope that NatGeoHD will be better. Can't wait to have it...

I have been waiting for NatGeoHD-programming is top notch IMO. The series Naked Science should be great in HD-bring it on...Ron

Isn't NGHD going to be 1280x720. Because NGHD has a deal with EquatorHD to use some of their HD library. So won't 1080i content downconverted to 720p look a little less in PQ.

NGHD is going to be 1280x720p because Fox is the controlling partner, and all of their HD is 720p. Since they do the conversion in studio, you shouldn't notice a huge difference in the quality of the programming. How does ESPN look to you? That's the same format the NGHD will be using.
