    I have asked this before about WatchESPN, but it would be nice to have the ability to see those games. I understand ESPN's contract does not come up for negotiation until next year, so there is probably no chance of that. Also the SEC uses a tiny network called CSS to broadcast some games, which is stupid in my book since no one with satellite can receive this network (and not carried by many cable systems either). I guess the best option is to add a basic Comcast subscription, huh? Kill both birds with one stone. Yes, I know, those of us who love sports are a little nuts sometimes.

    Nuts is good, helps take focus off the real world which is good sometimes.

    OWN also noted in another thread.

    The question is, who sold the ads? Directv or the NFL?

    More hd is always better, but right now I am very happy since I now have all the channels that I wanted. I have to also say that H2 hd is very good and even better then the vod hd of this channel.

    You keep saying that but this is an anticipation thread. Anticipation of what may be and what people want. There’s no need to shoot down others wants.

    Let’s all anticipate. :)

    It was announced in 2007, but never launched unfortunently.

    I thought it was funny, but I don't see the big deal...

    DirecTV airs commercials for channels they don't carry in HD quite often... heck, I've seen HD commercials for Chiller.

    My guess? Discovery just gave the Audience Network the logos that had HD on them.

    While waiting for the Super Bowl . . . I'd like the Military Channel in HD as well, although my principal interest resides in CSN Philly HD.

    I never have seen the Military History Channel but, assuming HD availability, trust I'd also appreciate that addition. For those able to access Military History, what is your opinion of its programming?

    Heck, how long was it between when they started airing HD Top Gear on Audience before we got BBCAHD?

    Except IDHD, and Food Network HD also disappeared. Don't understand why Food Network would disappear. Is there a new logo being released?
