I hope to be in the Chat Room Saturday night.
In regards to 570:
Does anyone besides me find this one of the most ironic things EVER - it is NOT in HD.
I keeping positive thoughts. But, could weather play a part in tonight's launch?
We'll be lucky if it is in color:lol:
It is to far out in the middle of no where.
Do you watch the Discovery channel? EVERYTHING is far out in the middle of no where.
From the DirecTV blog "The weather report looks very promising for tomorrow morning with predicted blue skies and sunshine to watch the launch of the DTV 10 SC and the ILV into the heavens."
Yeah. But, it is not live.
I figured you were just joking - but we are talking satellite here - if they can't beam an HD feed from the middle of no where with a sat truck - we are all in trouble.
I don't think it is a technical limitation - I just thought it was funny.
No, that's cool. I had wondered the same thing and that is what I was told. You would think they could broadcast the launch in HD of the new HD sat. :lol:
Probably more $ limitation then technical. There probably not a lot of HD trucks floating around eastern Europe for rent, and with the exchange rate for $'s to Euro's it would probably be fairly expensive for a VERY limited audience. Plus you're probably looking for two satellites to get the feed back to the states, again expensive. As a D* customer, I'd prefer that they use our money on something more useful then an HD feed of the launch.
WOW!!! Over 6,000 hits on this thread since last night.
Doesn't sounds promising for us ! Who still live on Earth.
people can't wait
there may be some data on the lyngsat.com site once D10 is in orbit.
How about the 787 rollout? No HD either?? D10 will be in the air by then - should be no problem!!
Go, baby, go!
Anyone else read the description on the guide?
"...up to 100 national hd channels by year-end. Series."
It was the last part that made me laugh... 'Series'.
Guess I should go ahead and get a season pass.
God, I'm giddy.
I never thought I could get this excited about a satellite launch...and channels that are two + months away. Every moment a little closer.
Hope the launch is flawless, DTV ought to use some footage of it in their next HD commercial.
Me too :lol: And it is even closer now :hurah: Fly Bird Fly :angel:
