    Several HD channels got HD VOD, and several SD channels got HD VOD.

    I'm one for three... :lol:

    I was just playing in the Guide before work this morning and noticed the addition of some to one channel, and then did a quick browse through the list to find additional channels/content.

    I also noticed the shutting down of one VOD channel and the beginning of another VOD channel.

    Any specific titles? I didn't look through all 10,000, but didn't see a one that's 1080p and free.

    Also, the website is difficult to get that info re resolution or PPV.

    I don't know what package the server thinks I don't have: I have all of them, I thought, except Spanish channels.

    Did you follow the link in my post?

    This direct link (notice it says 1080p&ppv=false at the end) --> http://www.directv.com/entertainment/browse/on_demand/?format=1080p&ppv=false <-- should take you to a list of only 100 titles, you might have to be signed out of the D* account or clear cookies, but when I view that link I see 100 titles and then I can use Smart Search on the DVR to begin downloading them; usually if your signed in it thinks you don't have access to these but they are indeed free 1080p/24 content from MGM.

    I normally just look through the website and find a title then Search and begin downloading directly on the DVR, you can also find them on Channel 1100 but you have to page through tons of other Non free content since you can't filter only 1080p & Free on the DVR directly.

    EDIT: I think I understand now what your saying Laxguy, you can't set a remote download of these via the website/smartphone apps because it thinks you don't receive them as part of your programming package, however when you search directly for one of the specific titles on the HD/DVR then press [Record] it will add the movie to your playlist (displaying ch 1000 MGM as the source) and begin downloading, then you can watch the movie free and in 1080p HD resolution.

    Wife downloaded the HD movie on LMN VOD (1hr 27min) it completely finished in 25 minutes on our 30Mbps connection, that's some of the fastest VOD download speeds we have ever had I think. Picture quality honestly looks a little soft (that maybe why it downloaded so quick?), it's probably more like LMN HD on Dish (we have both D* & E*). Regardless, it looks loads better then the SD linear channel on D*...

    Hopefully all new HiC and HD episodes (premiering 11/28/2012) will be available the same week via HD VOD if TV Land HD isn't added prior to then.

    Nick@Nite's 1 HD episode of "See Dad Run" (really bad show, BTW) when I looked was rather weird, as I thought Nick's VOD channel had more episodes than that. I don't know if it's been filled out any more yet, but it probably will be shortly.

    I'm hoping the same. Reels has added Wirld Without End very quickly.

    Well, not quite. They added the first 4 episodes, but now it is down to episode 3 and 4, so they dropped the first two and haven't added any new episodes.
