    Just tuned to 110 and got the channel. I do not think it is supported on the HR20-100 (piano black) yet.

    Very cool!:D

    Is anyone able to sign up for the pass? It won't let me over the phone line or online at directv.com.

    Same here not able to sign up yet. It says on the bottom that its now available on the D* HD DVR receiver though. If I try and order online it tells me I have to have an interactive box. I have both an H20 and a HR20 so I dont know what that could be able. I don't need a 3rd box...lol

    You have to make sure that the primary receiver on your account is an interactive receiver

    Sorry but, yawn, IMHO this should be one of the lowest priority items to get going.

    Great news!! Now we can really test the remotes' response time with simple arcade style games.

    I'm good to go. They said for some reason their system isn't letting them add it so the CSR had to log into a seperate system to do it.

    With the ability to play video games in so many other ways, computers, game consoles, cell phones even, what makes D* think this is going to be even remotely popular that people will pay EXTRA to play games with 1990 graphics and a remote control as the game controller? Am I missing something here?

    “Game Lounge’s unique platform is engaging the minds of both parents and children and bringing family game night back to DirecTV households across the country,” said Eric Shanks, executive vice president, DirecTV Entertainment. “Game Lounge gives families an alternative way to play games together, using a medium that kids are used to while also playing in a controlled environment that parents are comfortable with.”

    That's Shanks' explanation. The real reason is because it's been pretty sucessful for Sky and E*.

    All Access (unlimited games) is $5.95 a month

    Game Pass ("24 hour access to your favorite game category) is $1.95. You can get a few extra hours out of the Game pass if you order at the right time I think.

    Everyone, my brother was told that his HR20-100 (piano black) does not support game lounge yet and ordering from that box is not possible. That explained his problem.
