    Why are people crying about "The Year of HD" when the year isn't over yet? Strange.

    I agree that sadly D* is acting more like a cable company every day. In which dictionary can I find the definition of the word "soon" that extends beyond 12months? I've been waiting for since August '06 for the HD floodgates to open as has been promised by D*'s advertising campaign as "soon..." for well over a year now. Even my pathetic cable company has surpassed D*'s HD programming offerings in recent months. Had I known that "soon" meant "we really don't know, but we're hopeful it might be in the next year, but we won't really know until it happens, whether that takes a year or two", I would have kept my cable service a bit longer and saved myself from this anguish.

    Why would they make an announcement for the market? They never announced a specific date. They said 3rd Quarter. They still have 11 days left in the 3rd Quarter.

    I for one have been very happy with D*. I believe they are investing alot of time any money to bring us (their customers) the best in HD. We should give them some more time. So what is they miss the 19th. I can't count the number of times I've been late finishing a project at work and what I do is no where near as complicated as what they are trying to do.

    Thank You.. I upgraded from my HR10-250 in may because I was told that 1- I had to have it in order to get the new HD channels and, 2- I had to have it if I wanted to get the new HD locals that are scheduled to be out by the end of July 2007. After paying for the equipt install with a new dish AND paying rent on the equipment I think that I am being reasonable when I want an explanation! I'm not asking for money back (maybe I should), I simply want to know why they told me false statements and at least didn't offer an update that was truthful. Honesty goes a long way with me..

    Still no HD locals and Still no new HD!

    We are locked in with D right now--at least I am. Not to mention all the effort there would have to be to get D's equipment out and new equipment installed by another company. I have paid D a huge amount of money especially this year they could at least keep me informed about things :mad:

    It's become increasingly likely the malfunction is more than Directv wants to share. It's also likely we won't see channels before September 30th. I would say nobody really knows when the new channels appear because of the issues with the satellite.

    Hell yes. If it wasn't for their stranglehold of the NFL license for Sunday Ticket, I would have left this garbage company a long time ago for all the billing screwups and fees they've tacked onto my bill every month...

    I have FiOS phone and internet, it's just as simple as calling them up and flipping a switch!! Maybe when the football season is over I might just do that... Hell, I'd be surprised if we even have ONE new HD channel by then. :rolleyes:

    They promised 2007 to be the "year of HD"... I bet they all roll out on December 30th. :nono2: :nono2:

    So what's the deal. I went to bed, got up this morning and am now here at work. No new HD channels. It's a couple of hours since it was "supposed" to go live right?

    Are we in for longer waits?

    This is totally out of our control so everyone needs to relax. How do you think I feel I lost my date with Giada today. It is very frustrating to say the least but it is what it is and all the complaining isn't going to do a damm thing. For those of you who feel the need to switch just do it and move on. I know I have a lot HD football coming up starting tomorrow and will be happy with that.

    Isn't October 1 "around the end of summer?" Or even October 15? I don't think they will have any problem--even with the posters here.

    I don't care if it's today, tomorrow, or even the end of the year. I am looking forward to a few more good HD channels. I don't care about 150, because I will only watch a small fraction of them, as will most subscribers I suspect.

    It isn't a "quality of life" issue.:D

    Oh so THAT'S what he was here for? I gave him my lawnmower and asked him to cut my grass. I think he's doing it...
