    This site doesn't have confirmation of a launch or a date. That one does. I guess we'll see.

    What made you subscribe to a forum about DBS Satellite Systems then?

    And have you checked out Dish Network's HD lineup?

    There are plenty of Directv employees here. You have likely been conversing with one!

    Well, I'd take a forum post from say someone like SR. The 19th could be true, but just seems too far away. They don't usually have tests running that long.

    As today is a holiday, I'm perfectly relaxed, but thanks for your concern. However, it does sound to me as though you may be taking the thread banter a bit too seriously, so perhaps you should take some of your own advice.

    And, c'mon, you really have no idea, nor do I, as to how much, if any, DIRECTV is losing due to falling so far behind in basic HD additions---or do you? If so, by all means, please share.

    As to leaving for lack of DIY-HD? Who mentioned anything about leaving?Why is it that these threads so often make that turn?

    Personally, I'm not sure I'd leave over the lack of any single channel, HD or not, but as both a 13+year customer of DIRECTV and a very long-time shareholder, I have both the right and the obligation to make my wishes known, and trust me, I do.

    See, there's $100 or so not going into the DIRECTV piggy-bank right there!

    TCM HD on the 19th is fine with me. More HD after that. It's better to be adding channels than losing them.

    I don't look at this forum for a few days and what happens...TCM-HD is on the horizon!
    SO SO excited. Pretty much the channel I was waiting for.

    If you were a directv employee and someone is taking your posts on this forum and using them on a blog for profit, how forthcoming will you be on items not yet announced formally?

    Look for tea leaves and leaks and be patient. Your knowing or not the exact date will not change it.
