    At this point any channel addition is going to be welcomed....I miss 2007 when every Wed. was an exciting morning to see what new additions we got. Personaly I have all my channels in HD but more is always welcomed.

    Well, if you do any Traveling then it gives you an idea of where to go and what to do that you may have missed or not thought of if it had not been for an Episode on The Travel Channel in HD.

    A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words. :)

    After spending some time looking HD channels carried by each of the providers, I was pretty shocked to see that D* is the fifth largest. This is excluding RSNs of course. If you include both Premium and announced channels it is still kind of sad.

    Verizon 163
    AT&T 155
    Cablevision 132
    Dish 112
    DirecTV 87

    Most of the cable co's don't count because most of their HD channels have limited availability. Cablevision being the standout there. Adding in the RSNs helps a bit but not much. However, my real point of this post is that I have been a loyal and proud DirecTV customer for 15 years. This kind of deflated me a bit. I can still feel proud of that D* is better than Comcast.

    Being the geek that I am I am very happy to see the BBCHD on the speculation list. Torchwood, Doctor Who, and Top Gear not in HD is annoying. AMCHD is a very welcome as well with Mad Men and Breaking Bad. My wish list would also include IFC and History International.

    And just to make a certain someone upset, I don't care about the travel channel in HD either. ;)

    Since I'm stuck with the national feed of PBS my wish is for it to be HD.

    Agreed. It drives me crazy when I see a movie I want to watch on Chiller, but am DENIED due to HORRIBLE pq. I realize it is not available in HD yet, but pump up the damn quality.

    BBC America HD got interesting for me since they're going to start showing TopGear on it. Fantastic.

    As for Versus HD here's hoping they fix it up before the different racing seasons start, and then the Tour de France. Awesome Heli shots in that coverage. If that doesn't make you want to travel there and drink at a cafe then nothing will :)

    This thread is about anticipating HD currently not offered by DIRECTV. Both threads will suffice. Plus, how long can we continue to post about the same BS? We’ve all anticipated the “H” out of the channels we want. I’m even anticipating channels I don’t want. I’ll take any and all HD. It’s time for DIRECTV to putout. Peace my brother.

    Yeah but Versus is about a carriage dispute, we used to have it in HD but now we don't because D* and C* can't get along. We don't have more HD now because there's no more bandwidth and won't be for a few more months. Its 2 different things. I agree though I want every HD channel available even if I wouldn't watch it, at least someone else will be happy when they get it.

    It will be after that, more like May. Any new HD before then will be from bandwidth freed up by NFLST ending.
