    Universal Sports is at the top of my list. After that, DIY Cooking, and WE.

    I'm going to guess that D* is going to reserve space for those PAC-12 channels even if we don't get them immediately, darn it.

    So, anyway, DIY, H2, FMC, TVLand, NASATV, and CSPAN 1-3.

    No chance DirecTV gets EPIX anytime soon. That was one of the big reasons why Viacom pulled their channels during the contract negotiations. DirecTV absolutely wanted no part of carrying the channel and they got their wish.

    They might as well just give the NHL Center Ice bandwidth to Pac12. I don't see the NHL coming back until Thanksgiving.

    Honestly, at the moment, of the ones that are actually available... Nope... :)

    Twc sports net in a month when it launches though, I want that one far more than even the pac12.

    I would like to see G4 HD, but that is wishful thinking.

    that is mostly remaps and the only real saving is less RSN over flow needs.

    No, because U-verse added it so that's a step in the right direction.

    Have you seen how bad the programming choices are on LHN? (I know you have FIOS) I'm a big UT fan and even I think it stinks. :lol: Yeah it's great to see their top ranked volleyball and other sports, but UT All Access is basically on a 30 minute loop all day.

    I think they have a deal to do so with Comcast but not sure they've put anything on.

    I don't get LHN. It s extra and only SD outside Texas and I don't look at it in the guide.

    Since BBCA is now in HD, I'm no longer anticipating! But I am up to my ears in Doctor Who episodes in glorious HD. :)

    I would like to see Epix brought in as either a slightly less than normal priced premium set of channels, or added to the HD Extra pack though.
