    Pittsburgh's going to the Super Bowl?

    You have to be of a certain age and affinity for NFL Films for that one.

    Speaking of D14 launch. Once that little birdie is up in the sky, is there a chance we are going to have some/more sub channels?
    Just curious

    Thee is always a chance. But I wouldn't bet on anything just yet with sub channels. They need to get the mains ones up everywhere first.

    Aren't they pretty much done with that now? Lots of progress lately. Interesting to see new chart when it is done.

    I'd rather see the sub-channels die a quick and painful death. Bit-starving and parasitic at the expensive of the main channel.

    Just curious. Is Fox Movie Channel available in HD, and if so, which providers can it be seen on?

    Brighthouse offers it in HD, and SOME Time Warner systems.

    The (alphabetical) city one is already done.... or at least mostly done. I verfied things with DirecTV.com, but I intend to go over the transponder map thoroughly after I update some of the other charts (the state one should have already been up, but I didn't feel well last week, and the city one experienced a glitch that I had to figure out how to fix).

    In the meantime, I've been relying on the kindness of fellow posters to report mistakes, and I've been getting about one report a day.

    As it stands, the locals information should be mostly correct, but the HD newscasts, transponder information, and RSN info is probably the least reliable right now.

    Discussion is welcome!

    Lots of work left to do...

    Not usually my style to put up something as unfinished, but I just wanted to go ahead and get something more current up than a 18 months or so old list, and then finish as I go.

    Some markets had a HUGE difference between now and then... others, not so much. My market had considerable changes, but sadly, it was for the worst, as the old list had me with SIX HD-LiLs (and one SD), and now I'm at FOUR HD-LiLs (and three SD) due to affiliation changes.

    A wink is as good as a nod to a wise man or something as some august personage has said.

    if something is coming I'm upset he kinda showed his hand...now the swanni's of the world will post a page 1 article on D* probably getting more HD....

    as much to the dismay of many here, i kinda liked that TCM was a tad bit under wraps...all the word games and the SR hints of the past while good make other people and how they report it cheezy.

    I like hints dont get me wrong, its how I found this wonderful site...!!and I found this site on an accident...while searching on how to tweak or obtain Xbox 360 game saves, dbstalk came up on a google search..Ive stayed on learned a lot of stuff since...and the rest is history..

    Who has tipped his hand? I just see a couple of folks feeling something. Swanni can write whatever he likes. Feelings of a couple of posters may be right or may be wrong. He is a hack and a shaky source but that is a bit for even him.

    TCM was broken by Sixto weeks before it appeared. It showed up as a test channel. But so did stuff that hasn't appeared yet in an earlier test. Swanni want to bet on rumors and feelings, go right ahead. Can only damage his already weak rep.

    If it was anyone else other than Swanni, I'd made a joke that posting an "article" that DirecTV will PROBABLY get more HD is akin to posting a story that Apple's upcoming iPhone 5 announcement will leave some people excited, and others underwhelmed.

    :)

    Swanni and his ilk (if he has an ilk) are a big reason why we don't get news earlier. He is irresponsible. (And I love that he monitors this thread so I know he read this.)

    Anyway, chin up. Better to look to the skies that way. :)
