    New HD channels thread

    It looks like many Canadian broadcasters are starting to or planning to move forward with HD channel launches. I thought it would make sense to have one thread to track information on possible upcoming HD channels.

    i like how its January 2011 , ESPN 3D is ALREADY out , and Canada still needs HD channels for TV stations that has over 90% HD shows! like Muchmusic for instance . everything off MTV US is in HD. How is the US in the 3D stage while we Canadians are stuck in SD -_-.

    I heard that Weather channels new update is for HD . How ever , no news yet when that launches .
    Canada lacks in HD. If you agree post this in your signature.

    CANADA NEEDS HD. We have nothing!

    BellTV is moving SD programming

    BellTV is moving all of the SD programming from Nimiq 82 to Nimiq 91 this week and next. Hopefully the extra space on 82 will be quickly filled with new HD channels.:)

    Look for W Movies to launch in HD in December or maybe even sooner. Customers of MTS TV have been notified of new channels being added in December and W Movies HD is one of them among many others of which are already launched, except for the Hollywood Suite channels, which has already announced it they are launching.
