    I expected that to be a channel devoted to British humour.

    And I thought it was about kool-aid.

    It will be interesting to see where they put it, I thought 101 was full, and if they'll offer it in HD.

    Would a channel by any other name smell as sweet?

    Its probably good news for some, so good for them. To me it's another channel in SD that I won't watch.

    Same here. I am always happy when a new channel becomes available, because there is an audience that will benefit from that channel, even if it's not my household.

    Typical Swanni-like article...Take any possible chance to lambast DIRECTV. A new channel with new programming is launching, but he'd rather cry about HD basics. :rolleyes: He writes all that drivel and ends with:

    I find it funny that Swanni states:
    As if we're a reputable source. :lol: let alone the writer :scratch:

    Don't we all complain sometime?

    Doubt I'd watch even a second of PunchTV. I my opinion I wish the bandwidth went to BBC America-HD or AMC-HD.

    It's 1 SD addition...it takes quite a few SD channels to equal the bandwidth of a HD channel.

    True... I don't know about you, but I would gladly trade a bunch of SD channels for a few more HD channels!

    I would, but I'm also aware that millions of subscribers are still SD only...they don't deserve to lose channels because of HD snobbery. ;)
