    Please use this thread to discuss your feelings about upcoming national HD channels.

    This thread will not be as tightly moderated as the rest of the site, but here's the tradeoff... in exchange for your being able to rant a bit more, you can be assured that absolutely no one at DIRECTV will be using this thread for reference.

    You can ask for all the new HD you want, but DIRECTV's marketing department knows that the 100-150 contributors to this thread are only a small part of the 18,000,000 total subscribers.

    *Please remember that all forum rules are still in effect.
    *Please do not "bump" this thread.
    *Other threads that do nothing but anticipate HD channels for which there is no information will be closed.
    *This is not a DIRECTV vs. Dish thread, there are other threads for that.

    Pretty much what I said in my Q4 post.

    But I'll make it simple: I want everything in HD. Soon. :D

    Honestly, I've given up anticipating new HD channels. If they come, fine, if they don't, not much we can do about it, life is too short.

    We all know what we want added, its up to D* to make it happen.

    Happy New Year!

    Things change... :(

    Last quarter's thread, I had a bunch of channels I was hoping for... and while I still hope for many of them (I no longer really care about the Encore channels since I no longer subscribe to Total Choice Ultimate), their importance is considerably less.

    The only ones I TRULY still hope are coming this year are BBCA-HD, CW HD-DNS, and TV Land HD.

    I don't list Chiller for the same reasons I don't list cloo HD, or several others. Though they may have been listed as becoming HD at one time, it's been several years without any new plans, so I omit them.

    Is LongHorn actually broadcasting yet? I thought it was one that ESPN was just trying to get off the ground and none of the carriers were biting.

    Also, there's been doubt expressed about the existence of Logo HD. Dish is the only one that lists it and some Dish customers claim it's just an up-res'd version of the SD signal. The Logotv.com website FAQ says that they aren't currently offering an HD version, but that they're working on it.

    I'm not a sports fan (I have on the Falcons game today... peeking at it occasionally due to family at the game), so I don't really have many sports channels on the list. If anybody can give me RSN information, I'd gladly add it.

    As for Logo, I don't know. When DirecTV started their HD expansion a few years ago, they added multiple channels which carried little to no HD programming on it. Eventually, the channels started offering more and more HD programming. Heck, unless things have changed, TCM-HD doesn't offer any HD programming yet either, but it's carried on multiple providers' systems.

    LongHorn has a very small roll out. LongHorn HD even less. I think just fios in there small TX systems has LongHorn HD. fios in other areas only has LongHorn.

    also LongHorn SD is also a few small cable systems in TX that don't much HD any ways.
