    Please use this thread to discuss your feelings about upcoming national HD channels.

    This thread will not be as tightly moderated as the rest of the site, but here's the tradeoff...in exchange for being able to rant a bit more, you can be assured that absolutely no one at DIRECTV will be using this thread for reference.

    You can ask for all the new HD you want, but DIRECTV's marketing department knows that the 100-150 contributors to this thread are only a small part of the nearly 20,000,000 total subscribers.

    *Please remember that all forum rules are still in effect.
    *Please do not "bump" this thread.
    *Other threads that do nothing but anticipate HD channels for which there is no information will be closed.
    *This is not a DIRECTV vs. Dish thread, there are other threads for that.

    If you have any questions as to what belongs in this thread or an individual channel thread please read the latest DIRECTV Programming Forum Rules (Link).

    OWNHD and FSSDHD "live", with Bloomberg HD probably next.

    The HD Channel List thread is updated when any HD change is noticed during the daily check:
    Post #1 of the HD Channel List thread has the totals, listing, and dates of when each HD channel was added:
    The Notification thread is updated when something significant happens with a satellite or HD:
    You can subscribe to one or both, with both threads being locked.

    Aside from CSN Philly (which is always number 1 on my list). I shall make my desires known for the following:

    • Fox Movie Channel
    • MavTV
    • East and West network feeds of Telemundo HD.
    • Deportes Telemundo HD (if and when available)
    • ESPN Deportes HD
    • Fox Deportes HD
    • beIN Sport espanol HD

    A vote for the non-HD Encore channels:

    West
    Love
    Westerns
    Suspense
    Drama

    Flix, Sundance and NASA would be nice ... don't want any of those on regular basis tho.

    After getting something like 22 HD channels in last year, the list of remaining non-HD channels I'd *want* to see in HD is shrinking rapidly.

    I believe Encore Drama is the only other one that has a HD feed for now.

    Wheres Bloomberg at?

    Still wondering where GSN HD is, partially owned by D*. :confused:

    Still want
    FMC
    GSN
    HUB
    Military Channel
    Outdoor Channel
    Pac 12 Network
    Reelz Channel
    Sportsman Channel
    Sundance Channel
    TV Guide Channel
    And every channel ;)

    Theres really not much left.

    Next year should be a good year for D* after D14 is launched. :)

    BTW, with the exceptions of the additions today, didn't SR say we wouldn't see more new HD until Q3?

    Wonder why FSSD kept a "-1" channel? All the other full-time RSN channels have the usual SD/HD duplicate numbering scheme.

    Noticed that too;

    They haven't updated the former non-full time HD channel guide label for it yet. And until they do "Hide SD Duplicates" isn't going to work for it in CIG.

    BTW, I had to change my guide preferences from Hide SD Duplicates to Show All Channels then back again to get rid of the OWN SD duplicate.

    I'll have to do that too. I see both channels in the guide. I remember this happened with the last HD release too where the SD channels did not get hidden.

    We are no longer asking for Fox Movie Channel, we are demanding it! :mad:

    Stop with all of the excuses, DirecTV!
