    I've been watching The Trailer Park Boys series (after having watched the movies). The movies were definitely much better, but the series has its moments of brilliance.

    I hadn't heard of it, but it sounds interesting. I found some torrents on http://www.theempire.bz.

    I didn't jump on Warehouse 13 immediately, either. I caught up with it via On Demand between season 1 and 2. Watching it pretty much back to back, I started to feel the vibe and now love it.

    If those three are BBC America HD, AMC HD and History International HD, I will actually be happy for the rest of the year.

    I have seen the big lists of 30+ HD channels that still exists out there, but honestly..... I rarely watch any of em. I watch GSN every now and then, but most of the game shows on it are so old they were never recorded in HD.

    By the way, and the list has been posted before, they did add more then 20 HD channels since April first 2010, so basically in the last 12 months.

    I know that not everyone cares about this stuff but it sure would be nice to have a BBC America HD feed for the Royal Wedding on April 29th. Looks like that's not going to happen.

    It is a quiet little show with perfect characters and lots of wordplay.

    You will have 6 hours live coverage on CNNHD and if that's not enough there will be a lot of other royal stuff going on on several other channels. Just do a search for "The Royal Wedding". CNNHD coverage will start next Saturday at 04:00 am.

    Yes I know there are lots of options. I'd just like to be able to watch the BBC coverage.

    Understandable.

    Hopefully AMC HD, BBC HD, TMC HD, and a few of the other "requested" HD channels are added *soon*.

    Based on all the posts here...I suspect lots of people would be pleased.

    I have to concur that the BBCA option is the best since they are simulcasting the BBC commercial free. I am sure the US channels will have commercials. I am going to suck it up and watch the dreadful sd on BBCA once recorded. I am recording the Today broadcast as backup.

    Well Dish has now started RFD-TV in HD. Now is the time for all RFD-TV viewers(All 10 of us) to ask for RFD-TVHD on Directv. Have been a viewer since Oct 1994 and I would like to see D get going on adding HD channels that other carriers offer that we sure would like to see. Not threating to leave just saying!
