    They only had it offered as an addition at a cost. They declined. That's what was reported. Saying they got the right to it makes it sound as if something changed. Epix has been available since it launched and DirecTV has never agreed to carry it. Epix started out as overpriced and then shot themselves in the foot with their Netflix deal which watered down their value to providers.

    They have an position on it. It did change. They set a price. Directv has not to date exercised that option. That is all correct. If they want to put it on tomorrow they can. last year, they would have had to reach an agreement. It is the same as the plex channels.

    "As part of ending the 10-day dispute, DirecTV has an option to add the EPIX service to its entertainment offerings, Viacom noted on its official blog."

    Their position has not changed and there is no proof that it has. Note your source there. An agreement is still required.

    Pac-12 Network's statement:

    What a cynical statement! I have been critical of DirecTV over its lack of basic-cable in HD. And I believe Pac-12 Network is full of *s*.

    I actually had to Google "Pac-12" to figure out what the fuss is. Shrug. On the other hand, ION HD will be nice to have, especially if they'll do another rerun of The Wonder Years.

    Glad to see DT finally added these logos. A few more to update, but I think it's coming.

    New HD channels don't always start exactly at 6 a.m.

    But, they're up now. :)

    DIY-HD is one of the last national channels on my wish list. Now if we could get H2 and the rest of the Encore channels I'd be a happy camper. :D
