Sorry if this may have been asked before but I don't see a search function so don't want to go back too far to check. Anyway, since AMC has a lot of quality programming such as Breaking Bad, Walking Dead, Mad Men and the upcoming on Wheels, why isn't an HD channel available for AMC? Does AMC broadcast in HD, but Rogers is choosing not to carry it? This is one channel that deserves to be shown in HD.
AMC HD exists but Rogers does not carry it. Call or email Rogers and let them know you want it, I did that earlier this summer and they said they would pass my comments along to the department responsible for getting new channels.
They are waiting until all of our favourite AMC shows like Mad Men, Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, The Killing have all run their course and end or are cancelled. Once we have nothing else to watch on AMC and don't want it anymore I am sure we will get it.
Each channel, is originaly broadcast by different carrier...
Bell, rogers, shaw, etc.
If you are not the owner of that channel, you have to pay extra to get the HD version of it, etc. Some other providers, may have some of those channels, but not others in HD.
Hopefuly they can work out some deals and get them soon.
I can not for the life of me begin to understand how they don't have this channel in HD. It has been one of the most requested one for 2.5 years at LEAST.
Yet....here we are. Still wondering. I wish they'd just put out a press release or something admitting why it hasn't happened, because there's obviously something going on behind the scenes. Everyone else has it. End of story.
There's 2 slots free in the 500's 575 and 581 (after sportsnet1 moves)
I am hoping for SPACEHD and AMCHD. Knowing rogers it will be ABC SPARKHD and some other lame channel
