    This thread is here for the very purpose of letting people hypothesize and anticipate. For the most part, the only solid information comes a day or two before the event, so there's no point in reading this thread for facts. If it's not entertaining for you, I recommend reading one of the many other threads we have here.

    I just want to clarify, thats why i said "i guess"....i wasnt sure.

    The reason i couldnt find the link was because i deleted my saved 2009 links & just kept 2010.

    Again thats why i said i guess because i knew there had to be a reason i couldnt find it.

    I had deleted it was the reason.

    Sorry for the confusion.

    I think it's way too early to close the book on the DIRECTV12 satellite. These things take time.

    Thanks Civrock....yeah, that makes sense. When I made that comment about D12, it was in totality about D12, not based on June. Important to put all this in context. There were Premium HD channels (9 just launched with more potentially to come), basic HD channels (Travel, etc), Sports HD (ESPNU, RSNs, etc), all on D12. So my 99% was stating that people would be happy with what D* was going to put on as there was something for everyone on D12. Let's also be clear that there is still more coming on D12, but that doesn't mean you just throw it on there just to do it.

    Hope that makes sense. I wonder why the search engine here never picked that up, weird. Thanks for finding it.

    He was wrong out of the gate...and gets more wrong almost each month.

    He needs to turn in his crystal ball - he's fired!

    I think you're right, but we disagree on when the "someday" will be. Right now there are just way too many SD subs but that number will become a smaller percentage of the total with every passing year. When it becomes practical then they can swap out all of the SD receivers.

    And here's the problem. You have to start separating "people with SDTVs" from "people with MPEG2 equipment." We need to move away from "people with MPEG2 equipment" but could care less about how many people have SDTVs.

    Any idea if AMC HD will join the D* lineup before July 25th or ever? Sorry if this has been answered, but I don't have the time to go through this huge thread.

    I'm probably in the minority with some of the HD's I would like to watch. I'm hoping to see (most anticipated in front) HLN, AMC, Fashion TV, TruTV, TCM, BBCA, G4 & E!.

    Hopefully we'll get a few by the end of 2010. :)

    Busy life? To answer, no you won't see AMC HD by July 25th.

    Best estimates say NO.

    Perhaps in August.

    Don't we already know that the "small festivus" in August will be GolTV HD?
