Tired of spending way too much loot on art classes? If so, it's time to make good use of Gallery HD (part of the VOOM HD collection), as it's gearing up to air an all new series that aims to teach aspiring painters \"how to emulate the style of the world's greatest artists such as Monet, Van Gogh, R

Nah, RUSH HD's forthcoming documentary won't be the first high-definition program dedicated to taking a look at downhill skiing, but what better way to get you all jazzed up about the onset of winter than a fresh look at \"the original extreme sport?\" Okay, so maybe the Yule Log in HD takes the cake

We are all wondering where all these new DirecTV HD channels that they promised at CES are going to come from, TVPredictions.com is reporting that DirecTV is in talks to buy Voom from Cablevision. This would explain where another 15 channels are coming from, but still a far cry from the 100 national

Apparently even the HD companies believe it's truly better to give than to receive, as we've seen Poland, Spain, and the ole US of A receive new HD content in recent weeks. Next in line is, well, a little more of Europe, but it'll be \"the first HD content\" delivered to needy consumers in the Baltic

Who had the most high-def programming two years ago? DirecTV, Dish Network, Comcast - nope, none of 'em. Voom blew everyone else out of the water when they came out with 21 high-def stations.

We don't cover many Voom HD stations in our daily HDTV listings, but we thought it would be worth telling Dish Network subscribers that you'll be getting the first of many CFL games tonight. Worldsport HD features the Montreal Alouettes and the Winnipeg Blue Bombers tonight at 7:30 p.m. While Ricky

Just think, when Queen hit the charts with "Bohemian Rhapsody" thirty years ago, black and white televisions were still lingering around. HDTV back then? That was still being researched by NHK until it hit Japan in the early '80s. No, it was a simple time back then and if you plan ahead, y
