There is no OLN-HD. They are using INHD2 to broadcast the HD games on OLN right now.

...The simple truth is while charlie and company keep making asses out of themselves, D* is launching new birds, implementing mpeg 4, leading the charge for hd, building better equipment and just generally sitting back and laughing at dish...

1. D* is launching new birds : Yes, they do, but E* is also does that. They just got Rainbow satellite. They plan to launch more next year too.
2. implementing mpeg 4 : E* implements Mpg4 too.
3. leading the charge for hd : What that means. As far as I know E* has currently much more HD channels then D*.
4. building better equipment : Actually nobody knows how good D* new equipment is. Only handful of people got it in Detroit area. And this is a test right now.
5. just generally sitting back and laughing at dish : You know, will see who will laugh at the end. :)

I have nothing against D*, and right now I am satisfied with E* HD PQ. As for the HD content both E* and D* have to work harder.

OLN-HD is a part-time channel. Some cable systems preempt INHD2 to show ir, but it is its own entity. DirecTV is showing it on channel 98 as of tonites Bruins @ Flyers game.
