Even more than that, and your points are good, if you analyze the cost for the HD channels with even the basic package for Dish, it's cheaper that route than just paying for the HD channels, in terms of cost per HD channel when you break it down.

E! HD was added last Saturday April 21, 2012

Still waiting for BBC America, Fuse, and Reelz to be in HD.

ION used to be PAX TV. They now show new episodes of Flashpoint (used to air on CBS) and repeats of Leverage, House, Without a Trace and Cold Case.

Yeah but unless the program guide isn't accurate, none of it is airing in HD.

All right for DIY! Used to watch this channel plenty until I stopped watching anything in SD. There is maybe only 2 or 3 channels on DTV that I would actually ever tune to that are not in HD at this point.

and Pac-12 Network, which is looking grim. Pac-12 just rejected 2 offers from Directv.

Somebody has to pay the bill for Time Warner Cable Sports and Pac-12 if they ever want to see the light of day on Directv. The money to pay for them isn't going to fall from the sky. People who don't like the Lakers and don't care for college sports obviously don't want them.

My Dad will be very happy about IDHD. He loves that channel.

Are they upgrading the other Encore channels? Seems weird to just upgrade Encore Action.

It's about time they upgrade TVLand. I have to wait 21 days for Hot in Cleveland to get posted in HD on Hulu since I refuse to watch it in SD.

So the Dodgers are reportedly close to moving from FOX to Time Warner. But, no they aren't going to be on TWCSN, which broadcasts the Lakers, they will apparently start their own fucking channel.

Great, another fight with Directv to get this channel added.

The deal is not 100% official yet.

How many fucking RSN's does the LA market need?

It's sad that every fucking sports team and college conference needs their own channel. It's going to kill DirecTV.
