SRL / Skyvision HITS 2 Home Service is going away soon.
Only a few channels are left with Poor overcompressed SD picture quality.
Programming Center (SRL / Skyvision) and the H2H 4DTV platform has lost many many channels. There will be NO new ones added on the old 4DTV platform. Its SD picture quality is very poor (overcompressed) and rivals Small dishes poor SD. This is due to the transition at Comcast HITS to their new modulation S2 system for cable companies. This leaves the H2H platform only a couple dozen channels left. As HITS converts more to the new cable only platform expect more to leave. This will eventually leave the 4DTV without programming. All is not lost though... just time to upgrade to the Rainier Satellite HD platform. Movie channels, Superstations, Sports, Family, Variety, and more cable channels are now available for the new Cisco Rainier receiver in pure Master HD. Rainier continues to expand and add new channels in Master Pure HD Quality daily. You can get on board with Rainier today here

Concerning New Channels in 2015 and Beyond... UPDATED!
Many want new channels added to C Band subscription. Here's the nitty gritty on what is happening... With the older technology (the 4DTV's and DSR 410's) currently being used with HITS 2 Home for c band subscriptions, that platform will continue to loose channels as time goes on. This is due to upgrades being made by Comcast HITS to a new DVB S2 system targeted at cable headends. . The hardware in our DSR receivers cannot receive this. Motorola maker of the DSR's Digicipher hardware or Comcast HITS has no intentions to upgrade us or help the C band consumer community. All is not lost though. Rainier Satellite has a new receiver out for C band HD subscription TV. Most Channels will be in glorious HD. To find out more and order visit Rainier Satellite here
4DTV's HITS X4 Platform to End Soon
HITS is upgrading to DVB S2 for cable companies only!
DSR 4410MD's required, commercial accounts only apply!
HITS Don't care about all the 4DTV people!
Programming Center waits till last minute to inform Subscribers!
Starz, Encore and many other channels no longer on 4DTV platform through Comcast HITS!
What is one to do???
The future of the 4DTV is dark for subscription TV, but its not time to throw out your 4DTV yet. The 4DTV is an excellent dish mover / polarity contoller. It works well with the Rainier Cisco receiver for Master HD subscription programming being offered now by Rainier Satellite.
While it seems like tough times for C band diehards that is nothing further than the truth. C band is now once again in its infancy, just like back in its humble beginings. The original fathers of satellite such as Bob Cooper (now retired), have been replaced by a few new pioneers with the desire and drive that saw what was needed to be done to make it happen again. Rainier Satellite is owned and operated by those new c band pioneers. They have worked hard to get us where were at today, and will continue to work hard to build C band back up again.
