    I'm only interested in a very few channels. BBCA-HD is at the top of my list and just that one would make me very happy.

    Of lesser interest is :
    Epix - for movies that aren't other places, and some European boxing.
    Reelz - for some of their original programming. But Reelz seems to be an odd duck. At the moment, only Dish gets their HD feed but it is just for specified periods of time and it seems as if Reelz may not even be offering it in HD all the time.

    I will say that I'm not holding my breath waiting for any basic HD to be added. :(

    That's a stereotype!

    Only nine out of ten movies on LMN have that plot! ;) :D

    Mainly I like watching during the holiday season. LMN tends to play a lot of Christmas movies... some of which I enjoy very much. They do have the occasional movie I like every so often the rest of the year, but it's rare.

    I checked the next two weeks in the guide and saw several theatrical films on it... three of which got my attention as I've seen two of them ("The Haunting Of Molly Hartley" and "Panic Room"), and the other which I think I got free on Blu-ray ("The Stepfather" remake) but haven't bothered to watch.

    I personally admire success...

    To each their own! :)

    Of course... I knew that... Done!

    Let me know if there are any more mistakes! :)

    If I had the money, I'd probably do the same, so... :D

    As I stated, to each their own... :)

    It was D* decision to drop G4, not Comcast, they were offering the channel at the same price but D* didn't want to pay for it.

    Comcast isn't even that smart when it comes to its brands. I am in the Detroit, Michigan designated market area. Comcast should have in its digital lineup numerous of its branded regional sports programming — especially Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia.

    Here's my quarterly - and futile - request for Fox Soccer Plus to go HD full time.

    $15 for part time is egregious. And please spare me the "But there are not many subs" argument. Either make it HD full time for $15, or put it in SportsPack.

    For the rest of my wish list?
    1) Any available HD movie channel not currently in HD.
    2) Any new sports network.

    See you in the 4th quarter when I copy and paste this post. :)

    DirecTV had said something about potentially dropping some lower rated networks. Not long after, G4 went bye-bye. I'm not sure there's much more to the story.

    Then again, aside from G4, nothing else has disappeared...

    Carrying the national feeds of ION allows DirecTV the ability to not have to carry all those local ION feeds.

    As for original programming... didn't ION pick up the US rights to first run episodes of "Flashpoint"? Is that show still in production?!

    ION also has some original films from time to time... particularly around the holidays.

    Yeah... CBS aired it as a Summer series here in the states.

    I watched the first season and part of the second before I lost the rest of season two when an eSATA drive went bad...

    It did very well for them at first, but ION picked up the previous season and airs repeats of it.

    This is one opinion. They aren't "stupid" to me, or I'd guess, many other sports viewers.

    I've been hedging my bet on FSP and its content may roll within the Fox Sports rebranding of Fuel TV and Speed. I know FSP charging $15/month won't lead to many viewers as desired especially with Soccer getting bigger by the season. I also think some Aussie rules football will fit in well with the new Fuel TV.
