Spike TV Going HD in 2008

Oct 4, 2007  •  Post A Comment

Spike TV said it plans to launch a high-definition channel next year.
The MTV Networks-owned company that caters to young adult males will debut the HD simulcast of Spike TV in the first quarter of 2008, said David Schwarz, a company spokesman.
The high-def channel, which will be carried by DirecTV, will not feature any original programming. Current Spike TV shows include “Muscle Car,” the drama “The Kill Point” and the reality series “Murder.”
In the first quarter, some of the channel’s programs, such as the reality game show “Pros vs. Joes” and the pro wrestling series “TNA Impact!,” will be shot in high-def, with the remainder upconverted to HD. By the second quarter, Spike expects nearly all of its original programs to be shot in HD.
Spike TV and the Ultimate Fighting Championship organization agreed to a two-year extension of their strategic partnership in March 2006, which includes new seasons of the reality series “The Ultimate Fighter,” “Ultimate Fight Night Live” fight cards and episodes of “UFC Unleashed.”
“We know that our demographic—men 18 to 49—are guys who are interested in technology and would love to see UFC fights in high definition,” Mr. Schwarz said. “We want to bring that to them.”
Spike TV’s move to high-def likely will provide a bit of competition for male-oriented offerings from up-and-comer HD network Mojo, including gambling-focused show “I Bet You” and the international drinking tour program “Three Sheets.” Mojo, which is owned by Comcast iN Demand Holdings, Cox Communications and the Time Warner Entertainment–Advance/Newhouse partnership, has announced a crop of new shows debuting before the end of the year.

  6. Amazing freakin blog here. I almost cried while reading it!

  7. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  64. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  65. You make blogging look like a walk in the park! I’ve been trying to blog daily but I just cant find writing material.. you’re an inspiration to me and i’m sure many others!

  66. Insightful points. I am going to require a bit of time to examine the content.

  67. The web site was completely fantastic! Plenty of amazing data and inspiration, both of which we all need! awings and more

  68. What a relief to notice a page that may perhaps be real ultimately in truth meaning reading! I’ve been seeking all-around regarding this issue but men and women just put trash posts, or short meaningless posts. I have noticed a couple vids on youtube but it’s now the equivalent as reading a good article.

  69. I am not truly definite if top practices contain emerged about stuff similar to that, but I am positive that your great job is visibly discovered. I was questioning if you offer several subscription near your RSS feeds since I would be very interested.

  70. Kudos to you! This is a really good blog here and I love your style of writing. How did you get so good at blogging?

  71. Wow, amazing blog layout! How long have you been blogging for? you make blogging look easy.

  72. Sweet, ultimately a set up that fulfills my research. So lots of folks get th is subject incorrect. You are a good thinker.

  73. Good web page, I like how the website looks! The design is excellent!
