    AMC is coming Friday.

    TruTV is as "soon" as this year, or as "soon" as 1Q or 2Q next year.

    Thanks, funny how Time Warner still lists it as Too not 2

    D* still has it as Too if you goto the guide and scroll to the left

    removed it from the list as D* has it, by whatever name it goes by...:)

    Guide shows it as SHO2HD until you look at the description which says Sho Too HD.

    At least once a week the new Top Gear runs longer than an hour and includes the complete "star in a reasonably priced car" interview which seems to be where they do most of the trimming for the other showings.

    I noticed in the PPV HD movie guide that a bunch of HD PPV movie channels are missing. So I think we are getting more HD channels than AMC tomorrow.

    the next game that Tom plays with us here in the anticipation forum, should be on a channel outside the box

    I mean we all know TRU and maybe Pentagon and are the latest ramblings, (maybe the missing premiums) ....

    but Im saying to have a double secret probation style of game if it is really something outside of whats expected..

    Per SatelliteRacer however it COULD very well be next year:

    "To be fair, I believe TruTV time horizon was within 18 months but could happen later this year."

    http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?p=2756977#post2756977

    18 Months from March, when the announcement was first made, would put us in September 2012, so don't be disappointed if it is going to be summer 2012 before you will see TruTV in HD.

    That's exactly why we need BBC World News, France 24 (English), DW (Deutsche Welle) (English) NHK World (English) or even Al Jazeera English which are far superior when it comes to world news coverage and even straight US news coverage. ....And before anyone starts the usual rant about Al Jazeera, let me say that I have been watching them daily for a many months and have yet to hear/see anything that I would consider "anti-American". All of these (and more) have been available for many months, even years, but none have ever been carried by Directv. I am forced to believe that some sort of real bias against foreign news sources exists at Directv, otherwise they would carry at least one of the above mentioned outlets.

    Speaking of TruTV, I'm curious as to why they haven't turned it on yet. Now or later, either way its going to take up a channel slot.
