    Great more channels to quickly scan and skip over because there's nothing I like.

    Where are the basics D*. Throw us a bone.

    :confused: AMC, TCM, and FMC are movie channels too (hint the M in each means movies).

    More HD channels is always good. Thank you, DirecTV!


    (Plus I love watching people get all bent out of shape over more HD channels. This will be a fun thread again for a day or two.)

    Some of you guys are too much! Cry, cry, cry about no new HD channels, and he we are today with 5 new channels! The excitement lasts about 5 minutes, and now it's back to cry, cry, cry!

    For those of us who got new channels today, congratulations!

    For those of you that didn't, either subscribe, or have patience, or find another provider!
    Sorry for your loss. That's life!

    It's only TV, not the end of the world!

    Actually, if I got AMC HD I would have no complaints with DTV.

    Our CW station is not in HD. The CBS station is too cheap. CBS5.com own it.

    Reality check time.

    Folks, it's time to give upon BBC HD, TCM HD and AMC HD. It's become obvious that DirecTV has decided that the additional cost of this programming is just not worth the added value....and that it does not fit in with its sports-oriented marketing.

    If you have to have any of these, cut bait and go to DishNetwork.

    Is there anyone out there that has any evidence that I'm wrong? If so, please let me know.

    Same here. Our CW station is a subchannel on our ABC station. And I like Nikita and want to see it in HD.

    My "complaints" as far as DirecTV's service is concenred are as follows:

    No BBCA HD (Dr. Who)
    No AMC HD (The Killing, Breaking Bad)
    No CW in HD (Nikita, as stated above)
    No Fargo HD Locals (AM-21 reception is problematic. I cant get PBS at all, and Fox, CBS and NBC all give me fits at times. Plus OTA HD takes up 2x the space of DirecTV's HD)
    Lack of Canadian HD in the Center Ice package (The Wild are in a division with 3 Canadian teams, and its hard to keep track of those teams if theres no HD feeds from them)

    So aside from BBCA, AMC, and CW, the other channels I want are just "well those would sure be nice" but not that I really care that much about them.
