    Some people like fake stuff! The had to use the name "Entertainment" in their WWE name, because that is what it is. It's an entertainment show, not a wrestling show. But people like it, there is a market for it.

    I like Doctor Who. And all that traveling in a police box with a much bigger inside.... is also fake. :D

    Acting comes in many varieties, WWE is just one of them. And if people like that stuff, great! Since ION has some of that, even greater for those who wanted to see the gory details in HD. :D

    By the way, has Hoosier come around yet to make his traditional "You see how much better DirecTV is than Dish Networks with these new channels" preach? :D

    This may be true but it is a bad assumption. Gol TV is also on 426, and we don't know if they are just replacing it in the 600 range or completely.

    It's par for the course around here. If someone doesn't like it, then it's useless trash.

    since the cat is pretty much out of the bag, can anyone in the know confirm or deny that GOL TV is being completely removed from D* or will it be sent to sit in a corner in SD in the 400's ??

    My opinion is just as valid as yours. People have done the same thing every time "my" channels were launched. I'm sure it'll continue too, so I don't see the big deal.

    in defense of the coca cola kid...WWE is scripted fake...Injuries happen due to missed moves..so nothing is genuine real here...and I like WWE and TNA

    HLN is fake airheads airing real stories with a touch of TMZ tabloid trash style to it, while real but a bit on the cheeze side.

    so there!!

    No one thinks wrestling is real, even us fans. It's simple entertainment.

    Just not sure about that. It is ASSUMED that because of the channel awarded to BeIN that GOL TV might be replaced. But I don't know what will happen to the 426 channel for GOL TV.

    That said, if that one is already SD.... (I don't know, I never tuned in to 426, only ever to GOL on 620) Sixto may not have noticed any changes to that channel.

    GOL TV as an entity does seem to be losing rights after rights..... lots of rights up for bid right now, and BeIN seems to be throwing lots of money at it. So we'll have to see what the future will be for that channel.

    This is a funny thread ... I really do chuckle at times ...

    We want xxx, DirecTV sucks to not have xxx, man if they only had xxx.

    xxx gets announced.

    That is great, but we really need yyy, DirecTV sucks to not have yyy, man if only yyy was added instead of xxx.

    yyy gets announced ...

    That's great, but we really need ... :)

    Most people should be very impressed and satisfied with the 2012 additions, steady progress, certainly shows that they're listening and expanding.

    426 is also HD. Just because they are testing on 9620 doesn't mean they cannot map beIN to 426 once it goes live or even just delete 426. Gol is considered part of the Spanish package and that is why it is on 426. May not be true for beIN.

    I think you might be counting that loss a little early. It's on two places and may simply move in the 600s as well we don't know yet.
