    I'd really like to see FXM HD. I was watching it in HD at my dads house yesterday for a little bit with Service Electric Cablevision.

    Would be nice to have FXM in HD on DirecTV.

    Great to hear. While I don't agree with Oprah on much, especially her politics, I do appreciate some of the programming on the channel that I have watched with my wife. I'm sure my wife will be happy to hear this.

    Thank you!

    I downloaded Big Rich Atlanta just to see Style Network HD. No logo on the screen; it was used prior to the start of the program. Picture quality is very good.

    So, is it accurate to say that DirecTV and Comcast have a pissing match going on which would help expalin why we don't yet have the following: Style Network HD, Oxygen HD, PBS Kids Sprout HD, and TV One HD? (I think it's been mentioned here that is the case.)

    That's my guess. I mean why is Style and PBS Sprout in the tier right under Premier? Comcast must be charging an arm and leg for them.

    I saw PBS Sprout in HD this weekend on cable. Crystal clear quality and my 4 month old seemed to like it. I don't get Sprout and Style in my DirecTV package, but I would upgrade if they were offered in HD.

    As others have said, any HD is good to me. It will be fun to see how D* dances with the SEC next month when the SEC announces their own network. Just from watching the tango, or lack thereof, with the Pac-12 Network, may be interesting. Of course, the SEC Network will probably not begin until at least the fall with football.

    That is definitely an April Fools day event. I haven't heard one person ask for OWN in HD. I don't watch OWN and it is hidden on my program guide deliberately.

    We want Fox Movies in HD , that is number 1. Number 2 would be Ovation in HD. And number 1000 would be OWN .

    The DirecTV website shows it in Xtra ... perhaps a change in plans?

    Any new HD is always a good thing. Everyone's tastes are different. Still hoping for Fox Movie Channel HD, Reelz HD and more Encore movie channels to be in HD.

    I know I am in the minority (pun intended) but I will need OWN to watch new Tyler Perry shows in HD. TBS won't be carrying his shows anymore.

    A few days ago, FMC had a fantastic Sophia Loren movie, Boy on a Dolphin, a panoramic tour of Greece , and she in one of her first important movies. In Technicolor and Cinemascope, , in SD . . had to turn it off, it was unwatchable.

    You haven't been paying attention then. I have seen a few people ask for it, and I'm sure there are many that have been asking for it since their launch, they might just not be on this site. In case you haven't noticed the demographic of the people watching this channel probably doesn't have much of an overlap with the demographic of people that spend their time posting on internet boards about electronics and satellite TV service.

    I myself have mentioned wanting it, not necessarily for myself as I rarely watch it, but for my wife, who watches it nearly every day.

    Shoot, I guess no anticipation of the Sundance Channel in HD? They have a new series starting that's getting some good reviews:

    Sundance's Elisabeth Moss Detective Miniseries TOP OF THE LAKE Reunites THE PIANO’s Jane Campion And Holly Hunter!! Everybody But The NYTimes Critic Seems To Like It!!
