I think this channel really needed HD as PQ used to suck so much on the SD one.

Can't say I've ever watched this channel. But then, I'm not a fatuous, celebrity obsessed, 14 year old girl. (which is whom I suspect this channel aimed at)

I'm sure lots of nice, normal people will watch it too.

HD for everyone! As it should be. Happy days!

The fact that you say you have never watched the channel makes your second sentence pretty pointless as you dont know what the channel shows. I find lots of interesting stuff to watch on it as it sure is not aimed at 14 year old girls.

I've seen the EPG listings. Anything that focuses on the likes of The Kardashians so heavily has its colours pinned clearly to the proverbial mast.

In the unlikely event that anything should ever catch my eye, I'll be certain to tune in. I'm no channel snob.

In the meantime, all those that do like it are welcome to enjoy it's "pleasures" to their heart's content as far as I'm concerned. I'm sure teenage girls everywhere are delighted that they'll be able to admire shiny, botoxed faces in glorious High Definition. And rightly so.

Well I rarely watch it either, I just think it good there is another HD channel on Sky whether I watch it or not. I wish they were all HD.

Good for the Emmys. I think E! covers the Golden Globes too.

Yes will be good to see all the red carpet stuff in HD, also enjoy some of the THS they have. What I have seen tonight looks pretty good quality, far better then the disaster from MTVHD.

Well Done E!

But what I don't understand, is that celebrities often come across as vacuous, self obsessed, morons that believe their own hype. So why would somebody as discerning as the above mentioned poster be interested in such a thing?

Great add to the pack, just Movies 24 and Style Networks not in HD from Universal Networks/former Comcast?

Just another channel that very few people watch, but that we all have to pay for. Thanks, Sky!

What are you on about?

Has your subscription all of a sudden increased now E! HD has launched?

You don't pay for E! HD, you pay for the HD pack, which now has one extra channel at no extra cost.

The only thing that will have increased is E!'s invoice from Sky.

I agree will be good to see those for the first time and in HD as well. This channel is also good for THS.

I would say that a lot of people watch this channel as they run some very good shows and as Kester K says you aren't paying any extra for it.

It is very good news, as I DO watch this channel for E! News, Red Carpet programmes and some other programmes

I see that Sky have started to upgrade their platform from SD to HD, meaning that they can start to switch off the SD channels sometime in the future
