Default Is Dish getting any new HD channels soon?

I just switched to Dish from Comcast when my cable operator raised their prices. Comcast had channels like CNN in HD, and WTTW in HD (that's our local PBS station). Any word if Dish will be getting this or anything besides Voom anytime soon?

Don't know man but they sure as heck need to. After seeing what Direct offers in HD, I'm really thinking Dish is totally lagging behind. I've had Dish for years and got their HD package when it first came out and at that time theywere the best in providing HD content. Now not so sure. Also, the Voom channels pretty much suck. Same lame crap over and over. I guess I'll just keep my fingers crossed.

Tell me about it, that Monster Channel shows the same movies over and over again. And we're not talking good ones either! Just the other day, they had some Italian horror movie with English dubs from the mid 60s! Now I don't mind an old horror here or there, but how about showing more than 3 movies for what I'm paying for?

Come to think of it, all the VOOM channels seem to be that way. It's as if they are doing the least amount that they have to to justify them being a channel! You could literally take all the programming on all those Vooms and pack it into one channel and get at the most what? 24 hours tops of programming? Big deal, so a day's worth to last you a week? Not good man, not for what they charge!

And would it kill them to at least let us know anything at all?
