    Just to be clear so I'm not quoted by 3rd party sources and such (grrrr), in general I am saying more HD is coming, not putting a specific time period associated with it. I'm optimistic it is sooner rather than later, but everyone's definition of "later" and "sooner" is a bit different here. :)

    The two weeks was tied to Starz Play and Encore Play if all goes well. More stuff coming in other areas as well, some of it very soon. Have a great holiday everyone.

    Winters,...
    Thanks, SR. We're still allowed to mention this particular holiday, aren't we?

    So, in hopes it won't offend anyone::icon_band

    Happy Thanksgiving, all!

    Starz Fires Boss :( :crying_sa

    Any chance the Audience Network and DirecTV Original Entertainment group might be thinking about picking it up?

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, SR. I am grateful for much in this life, including your willingness to undergo the occassional "slings and arrows of outrageous fortune" and still contribute here.

    And definitely add Sixto and the "greater masters" (their wizardry is often beyond my ken) who he draws on as well to those I'm gratetful for. Also volunteers like Alan who perhaps don't require great skill in what they do, but give large amounts of their time to the community in doing it.

    And, last but not least, the mod staff, who do a thankless job well (I know on both scores --I've done it myself at times elsewhere).

    Strongly concur! And Happy Thanksgiving to all! Looking forward to watching football on a day when there is no chance my beloved Eagles will lose yet another game.

    I'm thankful for BBCA-HD, TCM-HD, ION-HD, DIY-HD, and TV Land HD VOD.

    Looking forward to additional HD blessings in the future... ;)

    Agree. Happy with all the HD additions earlier in the year, especially TCM HD. Looking forward to H2, HLN, LMN, FMC, or possibly TVLAND in the near future.

    I do not think HLN will be one of the next five. I think you might be right about the other four, though. Although I really want Universal Sports, I think the other one in the next five will be ID.

    Sixto will be busy soon and later. The HD VOD and deals with Viacom and TimeWarner of the past year should provide some light on what we should expect in the near future. The technology of being able to have more HD in each transponder is probably a game changer from our assumptions of a year ago.

    Anyway, I have been with Directv since 1997 and have no plans on leaving. I have options with cable and such, but I still like what I have more than the competitors. I must be on to something, because almost my entire family has Directv which included many brothers and a sister. They have FIOS, Time Warner, Comcast, Cablevision and ATT as options, but they love sports and HD and choose Directv. I was the pioneer and they followed. Maybe, I could get a reward ;-)
