    Still hoping that when the change over of SPEED (and FUEL ?) to Fox Sports 1 & 2 and Fox Soccer Channel to FXX, that we will see FXM go HD

    Oh well. At some point the additions had to be garbage. Time is now. We are now scraping the barrel itself?

    Your garbage is someone else's gold. I'm sure I'd think some of your picks were nothing but crap.

    Have you seen APB101s list? There are many channels on there I'd like to see added in HD.

    More HD is great, but I don't get playboy, can't speak Galavision, and QVC doesn't have any hit shows (does it?)

    Really wish it was Fuse, We, Oxygen, FXM.

    I understand.

    I figure DirecTV has a lot of ground to cover.


    Thank you, TheRatPatrol, for mentioning the list I made early in this quarter.

    @ http://www.dbstalk.com/topic/205985-directv-hd-channel-anticipation-official-q3-13-thread/#entry3153119

    QVC HD was among the Top Five (if we are to get that many) I anticipated. Galavision HD is a Wild Card. And I did not think at all that DirecTV was going after Playboy TV HD.
    (Those premium-adults movie programmers are expensive. Those subscribing will consider it overdue.)

    I do find it puzzling that there seems to be some avoidance of the Comcast/NBC Universal programmers' high definition. I'm referring to the ones currently in the DirecTV lineup in standard definition.
    They are: Oxygen HD, PBS Kids Sprout HD, Style Network HD, TV One HD, and Universal Sports HD.

    The HD Anticipation threads can be fun. But DirecTV can make me think, "Damn. What in hell … !"

    The three channels in test would not be my choices, but I'm sure they will make some people happy.

    Yes, but I firmly am in the camp of those disappointed with these additions.

    Some people really need to accept that QVC is a monetary beast. All of us nerds, including myself, might not care about watching it, but there's millions who do. As for Playboy, what needs to be said about the porn industry? It's huge, no pun intended. Finally, the Hispanic American population is continuing to grow.

    As with every addition, the "it's all about me" mantra reigns here.

    I don't watch any of these channels, but I can't be mad about Galavision. It's a major spanish-language network. It should be on in HD.

    If I wanted Spanish (or any other non-English) language programming, I would have subscribed to Dish. I have DirecTV for the sports. When will we get Universal Sports in HD?
