    I'm an HBO sub and I'm disappointed. I'd much rather have AMC & BBC America HD.

    As he said, not everyone will be happy.

    Swap "not everyone" with "most will not". ;)

    I'll go out on a limb and say "most" will not be happy. :sure:

    Most as in here or overall?
    Most here are unhappy 99.9% with anything that doesn't benefit them. Most overall won't care or notice.

    Last year I read on Multiichannel ENCORE West would be in HD.

    Dish has games also. They're real slow and ugly. I think it's time for both companies to pull games!

    I saw that but they still kept the diamond icon attached to the channel (FS Plus), meaning "HD GAMES ONLY" and thus, still not designated as a full-time HD channel... The same icon is attached to the 2 other part-time HD channels-- FSN Ohio and FSN Cincinnati....

    Haven't watched HBO Signature in a long time, but as I recall it's mainly for HBO's original programming. If that's the case, this would be a great channel to have in HD finally.

    Also would be great to have ReelzChannel HD just in time for The Kennedys.

    Wikipedia says it's geared towards women. There's no source for it though so I don't know where they got that idea from.

    Most of you would still gripe about what channels we get in HD. I would like to have more premium channels.

    The next five movies on HBO Sig (after Big Love is over):

    American Splendor
    Away We Go
    Date Night
    The Peacemaker
    Sugar

    Away We Go is a touchy-feely movie and Date Night is, well, about date night (but is a bit actiony-adventury). American Splendor, The Peacemaker and Sugar (a drama about a baseball player) are hardly women's movies.

    Sat's rightfully concerned that if he actually told us about the coming Chess Channel HD, Knitting Channel HD and the Colostomy Channel HD we'd burn down the forum.

    They're also having a Free Preview of GSN Game Lounge on April 22-23, which might explain the HD upgrade of this channel....

    Wondering, though, if this new GSN Game Lounge-HD should really count as a regular "HD Channel" in Sixto's HD Lists (or DirecTV's for that matter), given that it's not a linear channel but an interactive service.... A separate designation such as "interactive HD", similar to the separate 3-D channels section, would be my vote... Any thoughts ?

    Seems to me if we don't get BBCA HD and AMC HD "soon", a lot of the people on this thread will burn it down too.
