And Great American Country was uplinked in HD, but not available yet.
Too bad only a small percentage of subscribers would get it.....Unless that too will be dropping to Top200...

GAC and Newsy were Scripps owned channels which recently got taken over by the Discovery networks. Wonder if Dish and Discovery recently signed new long term deals. Pretty sure Dish receives all the discovery owned networks now except discovery life

If DISH got a new deal with Disney then I would hope it would include access to the Discovery Go apps.

I was thinking the same thing, or that Dish reached a new deal with Scripps right before the networks were taken over by Discovery, and that deal is just now being implemented. So far, the latter seems more likely, for the reason that Scott pointed out above.

Newsy has a free access app that is HD on Roku. I’m not sure if there’s a Newsy app on other devices (such as Amazon Fire TV or Apple TV), but I’m willing to bet it is and I think it would be in HD there too.

Newsy definitely has an HD feed. I've had it on Spectrum since probably Feb or March.
if Newsy has a HD feed i would let dish know about it so they would go ahead and add it gettting tired of watching tv in SD already
