    Two questions,
    Just wondered how many DSS stations are actually sending out a HD signal via DSS right now. Is it mainly the movie networks, if at all, or are all stations in HD - the nature, news, and general entertainment channels, TBS - Travel ch - MSNBC, etc. ?
    Major Networks via HD DSS ?
    None of my local network stations broadcast HD OTA yet. (NBC_ABC_CBS_PTV) Unfortunately the local BomBast cable co will probably be several more years before they begin offering HD via their system. (wonderful service here) [​IMG]
    Can I get the HD network stations via DSS since a HD network signal is not available via OTA or cable ? I am currently blocked from adding the networks to my standard DSS service since they are available OTA and via cable.

    It depends on your service.

    Both Dish and DirectTV have HBO HD and Showtime HD.

    Dish has Discovery HD

    DirectTV has HDNet.

    Dish has CBS HD available for some areas. You need to check.

    DirectTV has announced PPV HD.

    It will be interesting to see which will get ESPN HD when available (or either or both).
