I thought that ENCORE-HD closed its doors. Am I mistaken about that?
Yes, they shut down the channel a few weeks prior to VOOM going off the air but, as I recall, they promised to revive the channel when there was more demand for HD. Wouldn't it be nice to see StarzHD and EncoreHD go live on DishHD in the coming weeks!

And don't forget those with locals only as well. Now, that everyone all have been informed, No gripping and bitching because we get to see it and you don't. Well I guess you can, but all we will do is laugh at you and call you names!! :D

Starz free preview from 4/28 - 5/1 on Dish in HD?

Any idea if this will be the time that Dish Network premiers Starz HD? This would be the perfect time! Just do it already!

I have gotten word that Starz HD will be added at our around Team Summit (which will be the first week of June)

I do however think that it would be best if they launched it for the free preview. :)
