Will there be any new HD channels coming this 2013?

The Sky HD roster is pretty impressive but i would appreciate HD channels such as;

 

Film 4 HD

Film 4 HD plus

BET HD

Sky Premier + HD

all of the MTV channels should be HD also, considering music vids are filmed in 720p these days.

 

considering the addional £10 extra we have to pay a month  for the HD service, i'd like near enough every channel to be HD!!

 

your thoughts please

 

Thanks

Film 4 hd will be a great addition, but I still find there movement to be slow when it comes to getting said channels switched over to hd. 3-4 hd channels a year can be a pretty painful wait.

More 4 HD will be a sweet edition. It would be pretty cool if they brought back the real VH1 channel, the one they show in the US that has loads of epic TV shows.

However great the additions of HD channels are, there comes some that go.

 

Last year we saw the demise of Bio HD which viewers were dispointed to see go, replaced by Alibi HD. Sky Box Office HD1 has also gone since the launch of On Demand - so those without an unlimited broadband connection to their HD box will have restricted viewing choice.

 

Having too many HD channels will also degrade the bit rates - so we may end up every channel with the quality of FX HD and Eurosport HD.

 

Having said that, Film 4 HD I believe will be the biggest launch in a while, since will directly compete against Sky's movies channels.

Re: Will there be any new HD channels coming this 2013?

  When I asked about Film4HD, admittedly quite awhile ago, I was told Virgin have exclusive rights to it, so don't hold your breath waiting for it.

  Completely agree about the music channels, can't believe that except for MTV LiveHD, all the others are in SD, so we have to watch music videos with a crappy pixelated quality. I've always figured they must be shot in HD, so show them in HD. I know this is isn't down to Sky but the channels themselves, but come on, it's high time they got their act together.

Since then it has been announced that it will be appearing on the Sky HD channels sometime this year, hence me posting about it earlier !
