    The way I read it, three or more discrete Festivi (including the one coming in the next two weeks). I can't prove it --more an analysis of the way the normal native American english writer would imply "one more" vs "more than one more" . So don't hold SR responsible for that analysis.

    What I am expecting, based on my reading of SR's comment, is a little before the end of the month and then more spread out instead of one big festivus.

    I'd rather have CNN International. I'm tweeting Dish everyday to add it.

    Encore just has one HD channel. None of the theme channels are in HD on any provider.

    Might be BBCA. They sent me email about next round of Dr. Who starting in April.

    As usual, I replied I won't be watching the channel until I can get it in HD on D*.

    Normally, I get a boiler plate reply telling me to wait for the future. This time - no reply at all.

    I'm wondering now about the number (in increments of five): 1 to 5; 6 to 10; 11 to 15; etc.

    Don't believe Satelliteracer will say.

    SatRacer,

    I know you can't tell us which HD channels are coming in the next couple of weeks.

    However, why not just tell us the First Initial of the Channel?

    For example, if it is going to be BBC-HD, just write B in the next post.

    If it is TCM , just write T in the next post, and an N for Nat Geo, etc.

    That way we can guess what the new channels will be and you won't get in trouble with DTV. Thanks!

    Why ? We already have Encore HD, same movies. I think Satracer has said already Directv would no longer waste space with East/West versions of the same channel. Many other providers are also doing the same.

    I want AMCHD and I want it badly ! RAI , even in SD, would be the only other channel I care about because I am learning Italian.

    I just like the idea for having more HD options that I can DVR and have less conflict with higher rated scheduled tasks.

    It would be helpful if Encore OnDemand featured HD movies. That would kill the need for more Encore channels. I've shied away from the need for more HBO/Cinemax. With everything available OnDemand in HD, I don't feel like I'm missing much.

    I'd really like to see LMN show up. My plasma looks horrible after my wife watches that channel with sidebars. Stretch and zoom aren't really options, so HD would be super...
