    I always like to joke with my Badger pals that Badgers are part of the Mustelidae family....which include weasels and skunks. :D

    Among the few channels on the edges:

    TruTV
    HLN
    Turner Classic Movies

    AMC
    IFC
    WeTV
    Sundance

    E!
    G4
    Style

    BBCA
    Outdoor Network
    Investigation Discovery
    Lifetime Movie Network

    Assuming we're getting the Sony channels, they launch Oct. 1, so technically no more but pretty early in the fourth.

    I'd like to add DIY and Cooking Channel to the list... possibly even The Hub (once it launches).

    However, that would satisfy me until FMC launches...

    Again wake me when D* adds some HD channels that are included in base packages & ones the majority are interested in...this is ridiculous in how slow D* is in taking care of the majority. If it weren't for NFL ST they'd be toast...

    Wouldn't this imply that the majority of DIRECTV customers have NFL ST?

    I think he was referring to DirecTv being toast, not the majority, who I assume are the ones who voted in the poll earlier

    Dude... :nono: Pot, Kettle, and Black....

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolverine

    The wolverine (Gulo gulo), also referred to as glutton, carcajou, skunk bear, quickhatch, or gulon, is the largest land-dwelling species of the Mustelidae (weasel) family in the genus Latin: Gulo (Latin for “glutton”). It is a stocky and muscular carnivore, more closely resembling a small bear than other mustelids. The wolverine has a reputation for ferocity and strength out of proportion to its size, with the documented ability to kill prey many times its size.

    Much like DirecTV has the ability to eat its competition should it decide to launch some new HD.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Badger

    Badgers, occasionally referred to as brocks, are short-legged, heavy-set omnivores in the weasel biological family, Mustelidae. There are eight species of badger, in three subfamilies (see links in species list below): Melinae (badgers of Europe and Asia), Mellivorinae (the Ratel or honey badger), and Taxideinae (the American badger). The Asiatic stink badgers of the genus Mydaus were formerly included in the Melinae and Mustelidae, but recent genetic evidence[citation needed] indicates that these are actually members of the skunk family, placing them in the taxonomic family Mephitidae.

    Badgers include the species in the genera Meles, Arctonyx, Taxidea and Mellivora species. Their lower jaw is articulated to the upper by means of a transverse condyle firmly locked into a long cavity of the cranium, so that dislocation of the jaw is all but impossible. This enables the badger to maintain its hold with the utmost tenacity, but limits its jaw movement to hinging open and shut, or sliding from side to side without the twisting movement possible for the jaws of most mammals.


    Not unlike the hold DirecTV has on us as we sit here waiting for more HD.
