So if you go to Ch. 245, for example, you'll get TNT in HD, PLUS it will still be on Ch. 75?

D* is planning to keep the mpeg-2 HD channels (70-79) around for a while, so the customers with older equipment can still get a few channels in HD. They will probably start requiring the new mpeg-4 equipment sometime in 2008.

Default What about the NHL

When will the NHL go live? Also, did you get a date for these? We've heard Sept. 14.

ok, cool. So I can delete all the "70's" channels that I'll be getting duplicates of elsewhere. I read where the quality of mpeg-4 channels will suffer until D* completely does away with the mpeg-2 channels. True?

Im sure we will because it was announced a few months ago that WTBS will stop being a TBS affiliate and become Peachtree tv or something like that!

The mpeg-2 channels should have no effect on the mpeg-4 channels, since they are on different satellites. The only thing that would hurt the mpeg-4 quality is when the new HD channel count gets above the planned capacity of 150 channels.

Chiller HD is supposed to be part of the September HD channels. Maybe it was left out of this list by accident.

Nothing official has been announced, but I'm guessing sometime between 9/13 and 9/18.

I really hope that's the case. Chiller is one of the channels I am really looking forward to getting in HD. I just love all those cheesy monster movies.
