Dish Network HD Question - History Channel?

I'm looking at abandoning my 1970's quality cable company for Dish Network, and will definitely be getting the HD package. In looking at the SD channels included, it seems that some basic staples of cable/satellite aren't included.

The one that bothers me the most is the History Channel. On the Dish Network website, it lists History Channel International as being included, but not the regular History Channel. Other places show it as carrying the regular History Channel.

Can someone confirm which History Channel is carried? I know whichever one carried will be SD, but i greatly prefer the original over the international version. Also, any comments regarding the quality of the HD channels are greatly appreciated.

I can't comment on the History Channel situation. I can tell you, though, that Dish HD is better than DirecTV's right now. More choices and better quality. DirecTV has (essentially) what constitutes HD Lite. They aren't passing along full signal/bandwith to the channels, so you don't get the best PQ. From what I read, Dish does.

You may want to go to and ask your questions. Might be more people knowledgeable with the answer.
John Henson: McDonald's has dumped Kobe Bryant as their spokesperson and have replaced him with Yao Ming. Apparently McDonald's prefers Yao because he is a bigger international star, and he doesn't rape so much.

I get both History Channel and History Channel International on the DishHD Gold package, if that answers your question.
