I would love to get the H2 HD channel. A lot of good History Channel shows were ported over to H2. Those shows being broadcast on H2 in SD does not give the same experience, than if they were in HD.
The history channel (H1) and history channel 2 has become what happened to MTV when the original channel became littered with reality shows and such and they created MTV2 for the music videos. Most of the content on history channel 1 is their reality type stuff (American Pickers, Pawn Stars, Ice Road Truckers, etc.).
