I know that. Just strange how they reported it.
At least this year NASCAR on TNT won't be a problem as it moves to ABC/ESPN starting with the Brickyard 400 in August.
actually, tnt will have some nascar races this year, starting next week at Pocono:nono2:
D* almost always eventually does what they forecast, just usually later than they first thought. Whether it's D*'s fault or not, anyone who believes D* developments will happen when the PR guys first forecast has not learned from history.
We hedge our bets. We have both FIOS and D*. FIOS has right now (everything currently broadcasting anyway) the HD which D* promises in the future, and D* has better sports and better DVRs. D* will get there, just slowly and with more hysterical speculation by D* fans.
Never ever surprised here to hear of a D* delay, whomever caused it.
Harsh's 'Attack Basset' puppy is one of the greatest of all time avatars. No matter what the D* White Knight excuse of the day is, that little dog always makes me smile.
We have Beagles (compared to Bassets, sort of like FIOS is when compared to D*-a smaller, but still lovable, version, and eats less)
More like E* compared to D* -- smaller, eats le$$ and poops less. :lol:
The fact is that while DirecTV never promised or committed to a specific satellite launch date - only to their expectation of providing the 100 channel capacity by end of 2007 - they are STILL ON SCHEDULE TO DO THAT according to most information that I have read. A 16 day (or even a 90 day launch delay) would still allow them to reach orbit, and have the sat up and running before EOY.
Yes, there are D* fans (heck if I was a fan of another provider why would I be their customer?) - why would I pay over a hundred dollars a month to a company if I though another was better for me?
I expect people to be fans of whatever they feel is best for them actually. And I also would expect that those 'fans' would be excited about what is coming shortly.
Now if we could get less "poop" here we'd be set.
Are you sure about this statement? How many HD stations does FIOS have?
They show only 19 on their web site, plus locals. A long way from the 100 D* plans to have. FIOS doesn't impress me, they are just another cable company.
FIOS has practically every HD network available today. Most of the channels DirecTV will be launching aren't available yet.
They are a "cable company" with a better network than any actual cable company has.
"Fiber" is their strong point over "cable". Fiber has way more bandwidth than "copper".
According to this post from avsforum, Fios doesn't have A&E-HD, Mojo (INHD), the Versus/Golf Channel HD combo and of course the Voom stuff.
So are we running FIOS up to the satellite today? :backtotop:

Interesting. I had mentioned a while back that a neighbor of mine works on the sat launch team for directv.
I don't speak to him much, but the other day I saw him and had not read about the delays so I said. It's getting close to launch I hear. and he replied. Yes, we're back on track now. Wasn't sure what that meant at the time...
So I'm hoping the article is correct, problem rectified, July launch.
Yes they will, but my point was it won't matter (to NASCAR fans) if they take TNT-HD off the air for ST since NASCAR will have moved to ABC/ESPN by football season.
Yipee!!!! Positive comments posted today.
Lucky those ppl - they're welcomed by fireworks !
Sure wish they would leave the races to FOX, they do so much better with the races than the others. TNT will probably give us their stretched picture, like a lot of their movies are, and we will see little fat race cars.
