    DirecTV is just calling Playboy SD "Playboy 2" since the SD and HD feeds have different schedules.

    As for why in that range, it's part of a new contract since Playboy wants to be known as a premium channel and not just an adult PPV channel, as you pointed out we also got Playboy On Demand and it's not easy to spot, but TEN XTSY was replaced by Playboy's sister station BangU (the former Spice 2/Shorteez)

    Many of these new HD additions are contract related, they recently signed a new deal with Univision that resulted in UniMas moving out of the Spanish packages along with the addition of ForoTV, Univision Telenovelas and Deportes. If you follow the transponder maps thread and check the spreadsheet out in depth to see changes not mentioned, you'll see that in addition to QVC HD, DirecTV is currently testing QVC's new sister station QVC Plus:

    QVC's new sister station, it's described in the link I posted. It's similar to the old Q2 network.

    Have you checked channel 620, the english package version of the channel, that is the channel number that the web site shows for BeIN HD click on the BeIN logo and it shows the channel number. For the channel 426 version you need the spanish language package and a 5LNB dish to get it.

    Not getting ESPNDep HD with the rest that went up today,I feel like a kid on christmas expecting a PS3 only to open up my present and its a Nintendo wii.


    I've gotten to spoiled,nothing wrong with being greedy for more HD especially when you get charged $25 for Advance reciever fees.

    That's because ESPNDep HD is not on yet. If you get the SD version you will get the HD version when it becomes available.

    It was in testing the other day just like beIN HD was only thing is that beINHD got included with the Galavision HD,QVC HD and PlayboyHD that got added today.

    Somehow ESPNDEPHD did not make the cut for some reason.

    No one at DirecTV announced ESPN Deportes HD, you wouldn't even know it or any other channel was testing if it was't for people like Sixto and Doctor J who have tools that can detect them.

    Being in test mode doesn't mean a launch date is set, usually when talks are going well or they have a pending deal, networks let the provider put the feed up in test mode so they can monitor it and have everything set once the t's are crossed and the i's are dotted on the contracts.

    Thats why this thread is called "THE HD Anticipation Thread" as I was anticipating that espndep. HD was going live about the time beInDep HD was.

    Anything wrong with anticipating, or shall we change the name of the thread to " The Directv keep raising my Bill and give me HD at your leisure Thread".

    From what I read in the other forum site, It would be added in September if all goes well, But it could be speculation.

    I am SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS!!!
    Finally a non-terrible news source.

    Wikipedia says CurrentTV only broadcasts in 480i, but perhaps Al Jazeera America will step up to HD as they get things rolling. Since they are scrapping all CurrentTV programming (thankfully) hopefully they will also start doing HD, which means that maybe we'll have it some day!
