    Non HD Specialty Channels

    While the vast majority of specialty channels have now launched an HD feed, there are still several that only broadcast in SD. With the start of a new year, I thought it would be interesting to look at the channels that have not launched in HD and to get people's thoughts on which channels they think might be next to launch in HD?! Here are the specialty channels that only broadcast in SD:

    Action
    BBC Canada
    BBC Kids
    Biography Channel
    Bite
    Book Television
    bpm:tv
    Comedy Gold
    Dejaview
    DIY Network Canada
    ESPN Classic Canada
    Fashion Television
    G4 Canada
    GameTV
    i Channel
    IFC
    Juicebox
    MTV2 Canada
    MuchLoud
    MuchRetro
    MuchVibe
    Mystery TV
    NHL Network
    One
    Silver Screen Classics
    Teletoon Retro
    The Pet Network
    Twist TV
    VisionTV


    Out of these channels, I think Action, BBC Canada, DIY Network, IFC, MTV2 Canada and Mystery TV will likely launch in HD next.

    NHL Network I believe has not launched in HD because it is majority owned by the NHL (specifically a consortium consisting of the Oilers, Flames and the league itself) and thus that decision probably rests with them and not Bell who operate the channel but only own a minority stake. Another reason is the possibility that the channel might shut down next year when Rogers takes over NHL rights.
