    We got a new HD local in Austin TX, KAKW ch 62 is out of test mode. That's all the HD local channels we have now up on LIL.

    Either that, or he's saying "Get off my lawn"....

    You know it's bad when I'm thinking, that character looks kind of British. I figured it wouldn't be in reference to TCM since that's old news now :)

    I am so happy about TCM HD. Now that I don't have to change formats everytime I watch the channel (and it'll be a little cleaner picture!) I look forward to watching a lot of movies I hadn't before !!!! :)

    Hmmm don't think so, we've known about that for weeks and does one channel mark the Festivus pole? That's more like a 3 piece band :)

    I'm dreading it's a huge waft of Sports Channels :nono2:

    One channel is NOT a festivus.

    In the past, we have had festivuses if there was a multitude of channels launched, and a "mini festivus" has been called for something like 2 or 3 channels.... but never for just ONE channel.

    Of course, we are soooo dry and desperate for basic HD, that 1 channel might be considered a festivus, but I do believe that SatelliteRacer's festivus pole..... might be an indication of more than just TCMHD.

    Of course there is no timeframe, no hints, etc, so it might as well be all the sports channels that we are expecting. :D

    Disagree all you want, but it's TCMHD and that's it. Sorry.

    Such a vague hint by SR. Do you think it's possible of more than just TCM HD launching tomorrow?

    Since Sixto hasn't caught anyother new channels in test, IMHO TCM HD is the only national HD tomorrow.

    Not tomorrow for sure.

    We will, however, have more HD soon!

    Good news about TCM coming in HD now just a few "majors" missing. Hopefully not far behind BBCA, DIY (my families #1 request), Cooking, the last few RSN's not 24/7 HD, HLN, plus the few other's we keep hearing requests for.

    With the recent Viacom dispute maybe Dtv is realizing how important it is to keep current customers happy & are finally going to start adding some missing basic HD

    Yes, only TCM tomorrow, but are we sure that SR is actually referring to tomorrow?

    I'm really surprised it took them two and a half weeks to test the channel. Oh well, it'll be here tomorrow.
