    Pretty sure I saw a mod say something about moving the Current TV talk to the thread it has. I didn't see a tin foil hat committee thread yet so feel free to start that.

    There is nothing visual on CSPAN - all of the important information on that channel is auditory, so I do not see a need for CSPAN in HD.

    Well, that's just not true and saying it over and over doesn't make it so. Clearly C-SPAN doesn't interest you.

    But folks who DO watch C-SPAN would prefer to see body language, expressions, listener reactions and other things that a better picture presents. Just because you can't see the reason for something doesn't mean there isn't one.

    I would love to see the CSPANs in HD. I would also love to see CSPAN3 added...

    I'd obviously be pretty much the last person on the planet to disagree with that...

    ....but realistically....I doubt that will happen anytime soon. :(

    Oh I know, hence the smiley face. ;)

    But it could happen in the next few years though, with the launch of D14 and D15. I think we are getting closer. *Soon* :sure:

    DirecTV isn't part of Liberty Media anymore. Malone still has stock in DirecTV but not any amount that makes any difference. DirecTV does own 42% of GSN.

    My list of desired HD channels has substantially shortened in the past 2 years. It is now down to:

    RFD-TV
    IFC
    Outdoor Channel
    Fox Movie Channel
    Reelz

    and for the Mrs:

    QVC

    Any news on H2 HD being added to D* anytime soon? Can't believe that D* still doesn't carry this channel. Seems most of the cable and FiOS systems (at least in PA) carry this channel in HD as does E*.

    Yes, I am surprised the Cinemoi channel addition was not in any Directv notifications, messages or news. I found it by accident. I am perplexed by Directv's lack of P.R.

    They also carry BBC drama series they never advertise on their own channel, without any notifications, or very little. They are also re-showing premium channel series without any publicity.

    Thanks for the heads up. Edited my favorites list and added it. Being SD means I most likely won't ever watch it though. I don't remember a TV Mail message about this one.

    They had a joint press release and there was a banner in the guide for it.
