    My guess is he was talking about (though HE may not have known it!) some of the HD Locals that will be on D11. Launch in December, live sometime 1st qtr 2008? Then locals rolling out from there.

    I'd say that he needs to go to a third meeting because he certainly didn't understand the first two times. :grin:

    Fortunately, what is offered isn't limited to what is available on C-band.

    Here's a slightly different take: Some have suggested that the HD LIL are waiting for D11 to light up. Maybe that's what he's talking about.

    Neither situation seems particularly reasonable, but the HD LIL delay seems more plausible.

    I think I may understand his confusion. With the presidential primaries pushed up REDICULOUSLY, and all of the debates ALREADY going on, I keep thinking it's already 2008 myself! We've still got over a year until the election! Shoot me now!

    To repeat what I said, it'll probably all be on fiber, just like the Fox RSN's. Vivx, AT&t, Williams, Qwest, and a host of others will gladly 'hook you up'. Presumably (if the programmers are smart...) they'll have that all in the works or already complete.

    But, all speculation as to how quick, and who. My bet (if anyone wants to take it) is TBS-HD will be the first new non-sports HD channel. But it may be beat by HBOW, ShowtimeW, or one of the other movie channels.

    Considering that Liberty Media just acquired D* and Liberty Media also runs Starz movie channels, that gives Liberty Media's Starz-HD the inside track to be in the first batch.

    He's had too much DDT. He's trying to get back on the "endangered list".

    I'm sure he was confused about the locals. It may have also been an answer to a specific DMA, he wasn't paying attention, and took it to mean the national HD channels.

    LameLefty, your posts seem to have some edge to them. Remember, it's only TV. Don't get overly frustrated.

    Yeah, well I'm sure I'm not the only one who gets tire of older information posted as new. You know, there are tools to let you see a thread starting as of the last time you visited instead of just clicking "Last Page" and posting outdated or incorrect info over and over again, people. It's annoying the crap out of me to check this thread for new info, finding two dozen new posts, very few of which have new, updated info. This thread has been going on for WEEKS and people are doing a disservice to and being very disrespectful of those who have been contributing to a useful source of information by burying it in page after page of nonsense, off-topic banter, and incorrect information.

    Sorry if you don't like it but that's how I feel.

    I completely agree with you, Lame Lefty. I've learned a lot by reading the on-topic posts. Unfortunately, the noise-to-signal ratio has been getting unbearable the last few days. I hope you keep posting. A lot has changed since I took Astronomy in college in 1966.
