What's left to convert to HD?




RSNs in HD Chart




Notes: Dsp. indicates an ongoing programming dispute, channels marked are excluded from the total count.

"Total Available" count excludes certain part time/sports HD channels from the count: NFL Sunday Ticket RedZone, NFL Network Red Zone, ESPN Goal Line/Buzzer Beater, MLB Strike Zone, BTN Alternates (4), ESPN College Extras (8) NBC Premier League Extra Time (4) and HD channels that have not yet launched.
All of the HD RSNs listed on the other chart are not included in the "Total Available" count either.

About
The above chart details national carriage agreements with the top television service providers in the United States for all presently available or announced HD channels. Providers listed include the two major DBS carriers and the top terrestrial providers, including Verizon and AT&T's fiber services. The two nationwide over-the-top internet based providers, Sling TV and PlayStation VUE have also been included. Other providers have been excluded because their footprint is simply too small.

A tip of the hat to all the AVS members who have contributed to the spreadsheet over the years, and a special thanks to URFloorMatt, CycloneGT, nataraj, sansri88, and Ken H for their prior work keeping this thread and chart alive.

Subscription Sports Packages
This chart also tracks subscription sports packages with HD coverage. All cable providers marked above and Verizon FiOS offer their sports packages through iNDEMAND's three HD channels; Team HD, Game HD, and Game 2 HD. As such, they offer a limited amount (one to five games) of HD coverage on any given night with their package. DirecTV broadcasts significantly more HD coverage to its subscribers, typically all the HD games available in each package.

iN DEMAND began offering nine total HD feeds for its subscription sports packages on September 16, 2011. Carriage of these additional feeds varies by provider and market. For more information, see here.

RSN Carriage
A separate chart has been created for tracking high definition RSN carriage for the providers listed, but please understand it is currently a work in progress so errors are expected.

Most cable providers and Verizon FiOS only carry RSNs in their designated market areas, however there are a few that are available nationwide. PlayStation VUE carries a national gameless base feed of FOX Sports Network (FSN) in some markets where they do not yet have an agreement for the local in-market teams.

DirecTV, Dish & AT&T U-Verse carry nearly all RSNs nationwide which can be added to base programming packages by subscribing to an additional add-on (usually a Sports Pack/Tier) or in some cases subscribing to the highest base package offered. All blackout restrictions still apply.

East & West feeds
Where a "West" feed is marked, that means the provider offers two separate feeds of the same channel, one on a three-hour delay from the other. A reader on the West coast should probably swap the words "East" and "West" on this chart, and assume that if a provider does not carry a secondary feed of a given channel, the feed missing is the East coast feed. Yes, like most sports coverage, this chart too has an East coast bias.

Wide vs. Limited Carriage
Since cable operators roll out channels on a market-by-market basis, the default selection is "limited availability" unless a press release or someone here indicates otherwise. Channels listed above as "wide" are available to at least 50% of markets/subscribers.

Current Version
The most current versions will always be available for download via a Dropbox URL which is updated instantly the same time changes are made to the files.

The spreadsheets available on Dropbox are an Excel 2007 version, if you use an older version of Excel a Compatibility Pack can be downloaded free to edit in Excel 2000, XP, or 2003.

Ride TV is SD only on Dish. Shentel, Armstrong, CenturyLink Prism and Windstream Kinetic are the only providers I'm aware of that have it in HD thus far.

And only one of those is measured on this chart in CenturyLink.

wvvolfan,
Among the Foreign Language Channels in HD, there should be a total of eleven ULTRA channels from Mexico available that should be listed. You have listed only seven by my count, alphabetically. It appears that you have cut off the bottom alphabetic four from your display. The missing four channels are as follows:

ULTRA LUNA
ULTRA MACHO
ULTRA MEX
ULTRA TAINMENT

Additionally, these channels may also be missing. On a prior listing, they were listed below the ULTRA HD channels :

UNIVISION DEPORTES
UNIVISION TELENOVELAS
VIDEO ROLA
ZEE TV
ZEE BOLLYWOOD

I hope that this helps out. Thanks.

Charter's merger wih Time Warner Cable is expected to be closed today, but any follow-on changes to the HD channel lineups on both the pre-merger Charter systems and the soon-to-be-former TWC systems will not happen right away, so only changes to the provider headings while keeping separate columns in the tables for Charter and ex-TWC should suffice right now.

For the latest with Cox, it appears TV One HD and UP HD are getting close to launching on a limited basis. Cox HD additions usually appear on Zap2it in advance. So far, they're only being seen on the VA systems, in Northern Virginia, Norfolk and Roanoke.

Sorry if this has been covered before, but is GolTV really no longer in HD on all Time Warner systems and on Unverse? I have DirecTV (which has GolTV only in SD), but last time I was at my parents' house in Los Angeles a few months ago, LA TWC had Gol TV in HD, and I just checked my local channel listings on the Uverse website, and they claim to offer GolTV in HD.

We're starting to see the impact of new Charter.

In new Time Warner Cable legal notices, NBC Universo HD is going to launch on July 20 in NYC. While it's wide for Charter and Bright House, this is the first it's been seen on a TWC system. This would make it limited. I haven't seen it on any other markets pages.

I'm sure more changes like this are coming in the upcoming months.

Charter in Hickory, NC, has significantly reshuffled its QAM channel assignments and moved over 100 channels to SDV, freeing 10 6-MHz channel slots, so something may be in the works here too.

oriolesmagic and blackcap,

I sure hope this is the case.

It's been extremely frustrating not getting new stuff as the holdouts like Chiller went HD.

They've added ESPN Deportes HD, Fox Deportes HD, TV Japan HD, and a dedicated national feed of Daystar HD (outside of just the Phoenix market).

Can confirm that beIn Sport is now active on Prism TV - I haven't been able to watch it before but today when I switched to it, it was live. An ad I saw says that it's part of the Preferred Tier (and above of course).

I'll wait for the dust to settle on the pending changes coming to Time Warner Cable as Charter leaves its mark on systems in CA and TX for this chart, but Cox has launched some new HD channels.

American Heroes Channel HD (Wide)
Sprout HD (Limited)
El Rey HD (Wide)
Cinemax/Max Latino HD (Wide)
OuterMax HD (Wide)
Showtime Beyond HD (Wide)
TV5MONDE HD (Limited, Only in Louisiana)

The previously mentioned TV One HD and Up HD launches for Cox appear to be much wider now as well, before they were limited to VA. Oxygen HD should now be listed as wide for Cox.

All charts are now up to date as of 8/26/16!

PlayStation VUE has been added to the chart, also Sling TV has been updated with a lot of changes including RSN carriage. Some mistakes are definitely expected with PS VUE just being added so please feel free to post what you find.

Please remember to post all updates, suggestions, and corrections below.

Something to consider adding: whether or not the provider has secondary audio available for channels? For example, neither Sling TV nor Prism TV have the English secondary audio channel for Spanish channels like Univision. Other providers, like XFinity, do. Worth adding?

So has everyone but DirecTV dropped the ESPN College Extra channels? RCN dropped them a few months ago. They weren't in HD and all the programming they carry is available on WatchESPN anyway, so it's no great loss.
