This thread is really getting under my skin. I wish Dish Network would get off the couch and flip the switch on USA-HD. This is getting ridiculous.

This will be the standard for the cable/network shows.. but I think that the PPV's will retain their unique look. Who knows this may be the standard for those too... because the set is basically all video, and you can do so much with that.

I thought the ECW show tonight on SciFi looked better than Raw on USA last night.I didn't notice as much compression problems and the overall image quality was a bit more consistent.
Wow! Chavo as champ,on a non PPV?
Good match,although not nearly as good as HBK vs KENNEDY.
Let's see what we get for SMACKDOWN.
Who is ordering the RUMBLE in HD?

If it's available for me I will. If it's not, then no Royal Rumble for me

I would, but Comcast has eliminated the PPVHD channel... so, unless they add the PPV to the OnDemand section under the Events tab (like they have for UFC), then it's a no go for me as well.

but the videos that they are projecting arent HD...those are the same entrance videos that have been shown from month/years prior. Maybe once they get more Hd footage they will re-do the entrance videos

It looks like Bobby Lashley has left the WWE!
And the spoilers for Smackdown are up and it doesn't seem like it's going to be a good show.The main event is Edge vs CM Punk,which is apparently the only reason to watch.
I'm curious to see how the CW handles the HD broadcast.

I never watch Smackdown, but i'm gonna definitley watch this week since it's my only shot to see WWE in HD. And this CM Punk - Edge/Chavo/Vicky/Edgeheads feud has me intrigued.

I want to see Kelly Kelly in HD! She looked good on the SD channel

I can't believe Cox added the Travel channel HD today instead of USAHD

I wrote to Dish Network, regarding the fact that they STILL aren't carrying USA-HD:

Thank you for your email. We do apologize for the inconvenience, at the moment we are not currently offering this channel in hd. We would like to add this to make viewers like you happy, but we do not know if or when this will happen.

We are always working to acquire more programming to provide services to our valued customers.

We thank you for your input as we continually review our options in order to provide a compelling lineup for our viewers. Please stay tuned for consumer Charlie Chats that are broadcast monthly on Channel 101 or logon to our website for future programming announcements.

Sincerely,

Dennis P.

DISH Network E-Care

Pinebrook


Figured I'd get an automated response, and that's what I got. Thanks for nothing, Dish. If I didn't have a contract with them, I'd switch tomorrow.

The bugs are ridiculous, they should have just scratched in "HD" next to the current logo and stuck it on the top left instead of that plain generic one they have now as well as the original and station logos cluttering the screen. ECW was pretty boring and i was hoping it was going to be a different entrance ramp.

I think the new titantron is HD because i keep seeing the people next to the ring looking over, then raising their hands and getting all giddy

I don't think NE Ohio will ever get to see ANY of the WWE in HD. Time Warner NE Ohio is still without USA or Scifi HD. We do have a HD CW affiliate and of course TW doesn't carry that either! Keep posting screen shots so I can dream in HD!

Okaaaaaaaaaay!
And for the record,I wrote that it doesn't seem to be a good show based on what I read from someone who was at the show.
I don't want to ruffle any feathers

Doesn't look like it. Unless Comcast intends to add the PPVHD channel before Sunday Nights PPV, then we're out in the cold, yet again.
