    scroll down to the area on Post Merger history...its there

    January 20, 2013 - DirecTV will stop carrying Sonic Tap and start back carrying XM programming.

    now while wikipedia is all about user entries, I'm sure many others will see if the other shoe drops on this being factual.

    The first original BBC America series "Copper" begins August 17. (By this, I mean, this was not produced on the BBC in the UK, but was produced for BBC America,)

    I would imagine that both BBC America and DirectTV would like BBC America to be in HD for that series premiere. BBC America wants to build their audience.

    So we will see if it comes by August 17.

    Wow, I'm going to be left only complaining about DIY and H2. . . my heart just won't be in it after getting AMC, TCM and BBCA within a year.

    I don't have any trouble seeing the FB post, which matches exactly Santi's thumbnail upstream aside from the point it appears on DirecTV's official FB page. Also it's been there for three hours now without being taken down (tho it is late on a weekend day). "This month" would mean end of August, and Doctor Who doesn't start up again until September in the US, so happy-happy joy-joy.

    Winters,...
    Perhaps when BBCA HD arrives on our STBs we can complain that some productions are not in true HD! Let's hope! :sure:

    Let's see...

    Last year, I got ONE (1) channel I TRULY cared about being added (AMC-HD).

    As we started the (Official Q3-12 Thread), I had a list of three/four national channels I was anticipating the most. They were CW HD-DNS (#1), BBC America HD (#2), and TV Land HD (#3). So far, I've received none of those, but #2 appears to be coming this month, and I received TCM-HD, which if I extended my list further, would have come in at #4. :D

    As much as I want #1, and would LOVE to have it considering I'm paying $3.50 a month for the two SD channels, I find the chances of them coming pre-D14 to sadly be slim, even though I always get my hopes up for the couple of months leading up to the new Fall season. On the plus side, DirecTV could offer me a LOCAL CW HD next year (though there's no promise as I'm still waiting on ABC in HD for a year now).

    So... that leaves #3 left on my list, and I'll hope that DirecTV's recent Viacom deal included it as well.



    While there's some 30+ channels that I'd like to have available to me in HD, outside of those three (CW HD-DNS, BBC America HD, and TV Land HD) NATIONAL HD channels I mentioned above, I'm not really in any hurry for any of them... I'll just be glad when they get here. I guess DIY, LMN, Ion East, and Cooking Channel would be the next ones on my list... but no real timing preferences. :D

    It appears I got a "Friend Request" from that LIKE as well... :lol:

    Since DirecTV's Facebook page is reporting it, maybe Satelliteracer might confirm it for you on here as well. ;) :D

    I'd normally be guarded as well since BBCA has been among either my #3, #2, or #1 want for so long, that I'm hesitant to believe it, but SCREW IT, I'm going with optimism! ;) :D
