    I still can't believe we are discussing the "HD worthyness" of channels. Obviously, this is a personal opinion, so please let that be.

    I'm curious also. Are Military channel and Chiller even available in HD?? Also, is Fearnet an actual channel or only available online?

    Just a question about Discovery Channels. Does anyone remember Discovery Wings? I'm not sure, but I believe it became The Military Channel. I miss it, because it focused more on commercial aircraft.

    Those are not in HD anywhere. Fearnet is an actual channel, and I think it does have an HD version.

    As stated earlier, Military Channel and Chiller are not in HD... which is why I got a kick when I started seeing HD commercials for Chiller programming earlier this year... :rolleyes:

    FearNet is indeed available in HD.

    Any idea about Discovery Wings. I believe it turned into the Military Channel. Would there be any other channel that you know of that would carry former Discovery Wings programming (commercial aircraft)?

    I was forced to watch BYU blow out WSU in SD last night. So I have an idea. Directv should start showing BYU TV in HD. It is available in HD for anyone who wants to carry it and there are no carriage fees. So it would be a good way for Directv to add an HD channel on the cheap. They have a good schedule of BYU sports and very few religious programs. They also carry some nature programs that would look good in HD.

    I stand corrected. But wouldn't it be nice to watch that game commercial free on BYU TV in HD?

    Oh yeah - it wasn't meant to devalue the channel, just thought it was on national TV in HD. ;)

    That's OLD news. And it does not state it will "never" be on DirecTV. DirecTV reacted to that article stating the first weekend wasn't worth it and negotiations are still open. This is also what still is being tweeted by DirecTV.

    So again, I would ask you for your "never" source, but I don't think there is any. It will be on DirecTV, just not in the first few weekends I think.

    Guys,

    Are there no other channels you want besides PAC-12?

    Still waiting for Epix, also wouldn't mind a 24/7 HD feed of Fox Sports Detroit Plus (but I see the chances of this anytime soon as slim to none, but Comcast here has it).
