TV predictions for 2017. What channels do you think will launch/rebrand/close in 2017? Predictions for Dish/Directv/subchannels etc.
nope, not happening, ESPN been in the middle of shutting that channel down and turning it to a on demand channel for the last couple of years now.Will ESPN ever make ESPN Classic HD? All the rest of their channels are HD arnt they? Especially for sports I want to see them in HD.
50+ 4K channels. You also have to remember not every channel is in HD as well, and not every channel will go 4k either.
You love 4K but you have no desire to see it on live channels? Once upon a time many said the same thing about SDI love 4K but only on UHD-BD. I have no need or desire to see it on live channels as HD is good enough and looks great up converted on my tv. I do hope to see more HD feeds being launched and added by providers in 2017 as there is no excuse for SD anymore.
I kinda wish my TV could do 4K and 3D at the same time. (I mean 3D content upscaled to 4K quality; or 4K content in simulated 3D.) Someone told me some TVs could do that, (not sure, but someone told me some could) but since 3D will probably be gone in a few years, I don't think the manufacturer I bought mine from will produce something like that.I think it will go somewhere, eventually but very very slowly, there are always these folks and money tends to solve technical issues:
