    We have been close to the bottom of the barrel for a long time, but with the eight additions this year, we are really down there. Universal Sports and Cooking are the only ones left that I would watch that are not in HD.

    Agree. It says a ton about who might be the difficult party here. They don't have to be flexible because there's no consequence of note for them.

    I'm at the point where I'm thinking of channels that I don't watch now but might if they go HD. Well past the channels I do watch and want HD.

    Too expensive. That's what the Internet is for. And mostly free as long as you have a good virus checker.

    Or it says that the PAC 12 is over valuing their product.

    Well - i'll agree that Directv believes Pac12 is over-valuing their product. But then again - tell me who D* doesn't think is over-valuing their product besides themselves?

    I think channels like EPIX and TWCS, and the longhorn network have over valued their product as well. That is why I belive some HD feeds that we want haven't been added. Eventually I would like to see every station we get including the mix stations be in HD.

    Reelz has some original programming that I would like to watch but the SD on that channel is among the worst of D*'s SD. It even looks bad on a small 24" set I have.

    As to the movies, meh. Reelz is no worse than lots of other channels we have now that have ads and cut the films, so I don't see that as a big deal.

    Epix has Lionsgate and a few other studio's films that show up nowhere else uncut.

    Please take PAC 12 garbage somewhere else. 100% support for Directv, not giving in to their demands .

    If the conjecture during the Viacom 'battle' was correct, Viacom wanted Epix in some of the base subscription packages. Which was very odd, considering they aren't that way with any other provider. They are either/and/or in a premium package or one like HD Extra.

    Dish has them in a standalone package for $7/month, or as part of the BB@Home package.

    Please don't be rude about this... some would consider Pac-12 a valid channel choice.

    I am not, but others are having that problem. According to a previous post, DirecTV is aware of the problem and is working to correct it. There was no estimated time for when it will be fixed.
