    No, you responded to DirecTV adding the Sony Movie Channel HD, mere hours after it was added, by acting like there was a lot of posters out there who said absolutely no more HD would be added. You did not praise the addition of the channel; you only chose to attack people who criticized DirecTV's HD additions.

    As I said before, Satelliteracer announced over a month ago that a Festivus was coming in early October. If people claimed within the past month that absolutely no further HD channels were coming, they weren't paying attention or are new enough to this forum that they don't realize Satracer posts have more weight than other posters. It also misses the bigger point that people were complaining about the kind of HD channels DirecTV are adding and that the Sony Movie Channel fits neatly in that complaint.

    Furthermore, someone who apparently did believe that DirecTV would add absolutely no more HD channels, and who you claimed was in hiding less than five hours after the channel was added, replied rather quickly to what you said which belied not simply the tone of your post but also its content.

    My Girlfriend is what I call an "average" user, she never reads her TVMail messages, never accesses the DirecTV websites or its Twitters and because she Autopays never gets any mailshots from D* either.

    I'm sure she thinks that D* is just one Satellite and only the other weekend discovered that Travel was now in HD :rolleyes: I guess it'll be a long time before she notices Sony has appeared

    Let me get this straight, you don't update your girlfriend on channel additions?! :nono2:

    If you're not careful, she'll dump you for someone who does! ;) :p :D

    Once again, my count includes things like alternate HD RSN's and theirs does not.

    The suggestion that I am a Dish Network subscriber is ridiculous.

    I doubt even Directv knows...They will keep trying to tango with Rainbow and perhaps one day they finally dance.

    "Belied" qualifies as a $15 word? If you don't know it's meaning, it's not like you have to know Latin. You can pretty much get the sense of it by breaking it up into syllables. I didn't realize all posts had to meet grade-level vocabulary specifics or that a person could be accused of pretentiousness by using everyday words.

    I suspect if it's not HGTV, E!, Style or one of the network broadcasters she doesn't care :D

    As a CE'er, I think you've likely proven yourself a DirecTV subscriber. :)

    However, it WOULD explain SO-OOOOOO much. :lol: :)

    ~Alan<~~~~~~Who is just messin' with you... :D

    :lol: Thank's Alan. I never would have thought my very, very, very large number of anti-Dish Network (HD-Lite and such) posts, avatars, and signature notes would have been forgotten so quickly. :D

    As long as D* is adding HD channels (and not removing any) I'm happy.

    Now, when's the next Festivus?

    One channel, while appreciated, does not a Festivus make.

    Would you rather have them remove 1 (or 23) channels like some providers?

    Another "BONE" thrown at us today... I think its pretty clear D* dosent care about what we want and will continue to give us what they prefer.

    Sorry Satracer but after all the years with D*, Im no longer optimistic about D* pleasing its customers. :(:nono2:

    True, but all the other channels in the HD Extra Pack ARE tagged as such.

    Wow, really D*? Are you kidding? Another PPVHD channel would have been better. Isn't D* getting ready to launch another sat. Why? So D* can have a ton of extra bandwidth for more sports and PPV. At this rate it will be a long, long time before we see any "quality" HD channels added. If ever.
