Be still our hearts! Out of nowhere, in flies word that six all new high-definition channels are emerging here in the United States. Entertainment Studios, an independent producer and distributor of first-run syndicated television programming for broadcast television stations, has just announced that it will launch six "targeted" HD networks: Cars.TV, Pets.TV, Comedy.TV, MyDestination.TV, ES.TV and Recipe.TV. All six stations do a decent job of explaining themselves, and at least initially, they'll be viewable on Verizon's FiOS TV
service. Regrettably, there's no telling when the half dozen will go live on FiOS TV, and even worse, there's absolutely no way to know whether your own programming provider will pick 'em up or not. Here's hoping, huh?
