    I wasn't expecting any particular number of additions. I know that we are only aware of so much. A lot happens behind the curtains. Sixto and others can only see so much. It's not at all a knock against them at all. Sixto dies an incredible job with what he has available. There is plenty of proprietary or non-public information behind the scenes about the satellites (and such) and how the capacity is optimized. Only DirecTV knows their true capacity with so many variables at play. I just thought it was silly to assume we had enough information on that.

    Not all of us. I've said all you had to do was listen to White on the conference calls to hear that folks would probably not be happy with sports additions.

    If we only discussed those things we had detailed factual knowledge of, this would be a very, very quiet forum.

    That's one a month on average. Here's hoping that statistic holds and we get three more next quarter! :)

    I'm with you. Hopefully, we hear some news from Sixto or SR soon. Would really like to see HLN, H2, LMN, ID or TVLAND added in HD.

    You should probably open up another topic on this, this is not the topic for it. I disable my ad-blocker for sites I support (so this one shows ads) but when I run in to issues such as this one, I simply enable it again for this site and the problem disappears.

    4Q is usually pretty quiet. I think Sixto thinks that's likely to continue, as that's when he plans to poll again. . .

    Lot of movement today to D12 tp 20. Check sixto's thread. They are prepping for something , or at least using the room to help optimize bandwidth usage and shuffle things around to eventually add more.

    I am hoping for H2, LMN, and ID. It would also be nice if they would add OuterMax, RetroPlex, and IndiePlex.

    Directv tweeted they are still talking to PAC-12. I take that as a hint of the future.

    Comcast Sportsnet Houston turns on Oct 1.

    Be nice to have that channel in time for the NBA Houston Rockets pre-season and those Conference USA football games.

    Cool. The back-half of Q4 usually is pretty quiet, but October doesn't have to be. . .
