    I am pretty much set for the channels I watch. I cannot think of anything else I would want in HD

    More HD the better. Hopefully, everyone will get a certain channel(s) they want soon. FMC, HLN, H2, LMN, ID would be nice.

    My WAG is this week or next. They waited until Sunday Ticket came down. Also, create a positive buzz while dealing with fallout of increasing prices.

    Maybe the engineers have been busy getting Puerto Rico HD up and now has time for some new CONUS HD?

    Just a guess, but I tend to agree with you. Hoping for new HD at least by the end of Jan.

    I had pretty much stated my wishlist during the last week of the 4Q 2012 thread, but here it is again for the 1Q 2013 thread.

    MY WISHLIST

    1. CW HD-DNS (channels #394 & #395)
      The channel(s) with the most hours of weekly programming that I watch, still SD-only on DirecTV.
    2. TV Land HD (channel #304)
      The channel with the second most hours of weekly programming that I watch, still SD-only on DirecTV. Thank goodness for HD VOD...

    While I'd LIKE to have multiple other channels, including The Hub, Chiller, Cooking Channel, Fox Movie Channel, if I could get the channels listed above, I'd be pretty much satisfied with their national channel lineup for the time being.



    On the locals front, my local affiliate of The CW is supposed to offer some sort of HD feed this year, so my hope is that DirecTV will pick it up as early as possible... Thankfully, my local wishlist was cut in half since the beginning of the last thread...

    The 2013-14 NFLST season will start and end well before DIRECTV 14 is up and running.

    It still amazes me that people are utterly unswayed by the fact that Chiller HD doesn't exist.

    It exists now (or believed to be anyway)... hence why I mentioned it! ;)

    A couple of small time cablecos apparently carry it... besides them, I don't know.

    One in the Spokane, WA area, and another in the Topeka/Wichita, KA area.

    It appears that NBC distributes Chiller on AMC-11, transponder 24, where it is listed as an SD channel. Anyone carrying "Chiller HD" is likely simply upconverting the SD feed. Without an HD feed on a backhaul satellite, we have to assume that it does not exist.

    I think you're right. There's nothing on Chiller TV's website, Facebook page, or Twitter feed about being in HD yet.

    I'd like to see this one in HD too. Chiller TV better figure it out soon. :)

    It's very possible... but it's an odd occurence that two (I'm assuming unrelated) cablecos list Chiller HD in their lineup...

    Link to the links of two cablecos

    He's referring to the local Time Warner Sports Channel in Ohio that mostly airs local high school sports, some college sports via ESPN Plus and sometimes used as the designated sports overflow channel for FS Ohio. I doubt that will ever happen unless they get the rights to a pro sport. Most of the regional Time Warner Sports networks are just cablecasts that are created at the headend.

    I have a bunch of auto-records setup including one for "Agatha Christie". It caught some stuff on Cinemoi that my wife enjoyed (even in SD).
