    Yeah, I have a feeling the only way DirecTV would consider adding it was as a separate tier in its own, and I'll bet the option contract is not set up that way, so they won't be adding it. But who knows.

    i know EPIX was part of the Viacom deal, and DirecTV said it no interest adding it but i real hope they rethink it, maybe add its to the The HD pack or something

    Yeah, but rumor was Viacom wanted a flat rate, and Direct won't ever do that.

    Wasn't rumor. But I think that went away. But no one knows what the option is. Never stated publicly. Assume it is some set price if they want to put it on.

    Found another one, now correct me if I'm wrong but I think this VOD channel is completely new (channel 1238). REELZ VOD has HD content!

    I think it's been there before... either way the HD content is VERY good news! :)

    I just wish it was "XIII" or "Bomb Girls"... :(

    Any minimal interest I had in G4 in HD on DirecTV (or even in SD) went away with the news of Attack of the Show and X-Play going the way of the Dodo.

    By this time next year, G4 might not even exist anymore as we know it.

    Yes, Reelz has an HD channel on C Band in HD. It looks very good. Too bad that Directv wouldn't add this channel in HD.

    No matter how good the PQ is, Reelz still hacks movies. I would never watch it unless they quit editing the movies.

    Viacom doesn't offer VH1C in HD, yet.

    Reelz is odd. A few systems don't have linear HD but do have on demand HD.

    I see 1238 has World Without End. Not a great treatment of the book but pretty.

    That is so, but Viacom doesn't offer a VH1C signal in HD, yet. MGM VOD has movies in 1080P also, but we don't see those broadcast.

    Yes, they do have 4 episodes of that mini-series. I wonder if they will actually put all of that series up as a VOD?

    That is all that is available for the U.S. Reelz is releasing it to VOD as they show it. It has all been shown in Canada but not yet here.
