It's time for another SatelliteGuys Rumor Alert...

It appears that THREE new HD channels will be uplinked to DIRECTV by the end of the week. No word however when or if those channels will become available to customers.

Thanks for being SatelliteGuys members. :D

I hope one will be Esquire. Esquire is show old reruns of Airwolf and Knight Rider. I wonder if those were shot on film and would be shown in 16x9 HD like the Dukes of Hazzard was when CMT had them in HD?

Also when will DTV get all of the UVerseTV channels that are in HD?

Pop, GSN, & Esquire, although, since I don't get Esquire, I'd vote for Discovery Life.

GSN is long overdue. Dish and my local cable co. have had it for years.

Esquire HD isn't that much to brag about. The quality (on dish at least) is very soft even on movies and shows recorded in HD. And I hate to burst your bubble, but any of the classic universal shows I've seen on the network (magnum pi, Miami vice, knight rider, a team, etc) are all crappy '80s (probably for syndication) telecines. The DVDs frankly look better.

One would think that directv would have added GSN in HD MUCH sooner than they have, considering they own nearly half of the network. Frankly I hope they add AHC, it's sort of like what history channel used to be

I was referring to the video quality as crappy. The shows are great. I think they use tapes from when they scanned the film in the 1980s (for syndication). Blurry picture, very dull colors, muddled sound. It was disappointing to see as some of the shows have been on Netflix in HD already.
