I was talking to a tech at Dish today and the conversation turned to HD chanels, and what was coming soon in HD programming, I was quite surprised when she stated about 4 more chanels will go HD this year, HBO 2, AMC, IMC, and 1 other chanel I can’t remember.
She stated that companys like Best Buy, and Walmarts started all the mis-information regarding HDTV and Feb 09, 2009, that is the date that over the air stations must go HD, she stated that it will be many years before Dish goes all HD.
I know that some good HD chanels were cut from Dish in the last couple of months, to make room for other chanels.
With the money they are charging for programming, they should be required to put enough birds in orbit to transmit all signals at 1080p in 2009. I told them they should cut all the buy programs, and some of the preachers to make some room for HD. Ron:a
