    And since we aren't asking for it on Comcast or TWC or AT&T or fios, the non-viewers there mean nothing. How many directv customers watch it/want it. That is what matters.

    Not very many. You will be getting Fox Sports 1 and Fox Sports 2 in HD soon, that should be enough for the sports fanatics.

    They should all be added eventually, but Fox Movie Channel goes to the head of the list.

    Your list.

    I want both but universal covers a lot of sports others do not.

    Prove your assertion that FMC is more popular with directv customers, which is all that counts. It may be but it may not.

    If lots of people watched Universal Sports don't you think it would be on Comcast, Brighthouse, Cox , Time Warner and Uverse? Let's get real.

    The providers will be "convinced/coerced" of its value leading up to Olympics.

    If lots of people watched FXM HD don't you think it would be on Comcast, Dish, Fios, Charter, Mediacom, Cox, and Uverse?

    Not necessarily. Remember, universal was a sub channel until last year.

    But I see. Directv should let Comcast do its market research.

    I think they will do their own. So far, they have judged it to be worthy to be on their system. We wait to see if they think it should be HD.

    Until January 2012, universal was available on many systems as an OTA subchannel.

    How is watching movies with the same ending no matter what channel they are on takes precedence over a live sporting competition channel.. You have over 30 movie channels already to watch movies on can't you watch BATMAN RETURNS On Showtime too?!?!

    Most of the Trials were on NBCSN and main NBC of the events everyone mostly watches.

    But Universal Sports shows more programs that are not available in the US through any other source. All of the movies shown on FMC are, have been, or will be available in HD via other sources.
