    I'm hoping for a bunch of PPV's. Maybe some RSN that aren't available in my area. Throw in some premiums that I don't subscribe to. Yeah that works for me. I'm pretty sure I won't be disappointed.

    Wow, I realize now looking at the list of non-premium channels not available in HD yet that I had the majority of them a few weeks ago with Bright House. Most of them were available over a year too. I only care about a few of those channels but it's still kind of disappointing to see DirecTV fall behind like this. While there are many things to love about DirecTV over cable companies (I'm happy with my switch), when it comes to HD channels they are not the top dog they, and many on this board, claim to be.

    They are meaningless unless they are directly applicable to your DMA. None of them are in my case or in the case of the majority of subscribers.

    The bigger point of the issue is that these RSNs are not really bringing major new programming, just watering down what already exists across multiple networks and adding lots of local woman's field hockey.

    Anyway, my vote is once again for BBCAHD. Like that is ever going to happen...

    Next up... TCMHD!

    Edit, I'm excited for any new HD, though I don't watch TCM at all.

    Well, TCM HD it is! Congrats to all those fans that have been patient. Especially my older relatives who have encyclopedic knowledge of Jerry Lewis movies.

    Will welcome the addition of TCM HD. Shortens my wish list to four (BBCA HD, FMC HD, H2 HD, and The Military Channel HD).

    TCM HD is in TEST. While that's a good sign, things don't' always go from TEST to customer-live, or may take some time. We can be hopeful, but there is a chance this is just a test and nothing more. Keep your fingers crossed.
