Default Dish Network: 2009 HD Channels

Has anyone read or heard of new (confirmed) stations to go HD later this year with Dish Network?

It's been a while since their last update with HD..

Viacom-owned channels were supposed to start going in HD on April 1st, but that date has come and gone with nothing to show for it. People on the two satellite forums I frequent are PISSED since this information came straight out of CEO Charlie Ergen's mouth. For what it's worth, here's the list that was supposed to have done live on April 1st:

Nick HD
Comedy Central HD
MTV HD
VH1 HD
CMT HD
Bet HD
Spike HD

Also the contracts for SPEED and FX are up this summer so we may not see those in HD until the new contracts are negotiated.

Finally, these local areas are on the list to have their channels uplinked in HD in the next month or two:

Baton Rouge, LA; Butte, MT; Cheyenne, WY; Chico, CA; Columbus, OH;
Columbus-Tupelo, MS; Ft Smit, AR; Ft Wayne, IN; Gainsville, FL;
Grand Junction, CO; Great Falls, MT; Idaho Falls, ID; Johnstown, PA;
LaCrosse, WI; Larado, UX, Medford, OR; Meridian, MS; Minot, ND;
Missoula, MT; Panama City, FL; Roanoke, VA; Rockford, IL; Sherman, TX;
Sioux Falls, SD; Tucson, AZ; Twin Falls, ID; Wausau, WI; Youngtown, PA

I have BET HD right now. I don't want it, but I have it.

Rumor on satelliteguys.us along with some possible confirmation based on current uplink activity point to SPEED and FX (along with the additions of MavTV and FashonTV) going HD any day now.
