    My guess is that management and the board of DirecTV have been taken over by the Daleks and the Cybermen and that is why the Doctor and his Tardis are not welcome there in HD. ;)

    Oh wow a new channel that you need to pay extra for to view. Imagine that. :/

    Do you really have to pay for HD Extra? Who here does?

    Well you can get it free for 3 months one time, then after that you need to pay 5 dollars more a month - I think that is the price.

    It used to be people could keep adding it and get another 3 months free. Not sure if that still works. As I'm still on a grandfathered TC+ plan, it's not worth the hassle for me to try.

    I pay for HD Extra, have since I signed up in October '08. People that steal, err "get it free" shouldn't be allowed to complain about it.

    The HD Extra package was already worth its price due to HDNet Movies. Any new channels that add even more value to it is good news.

    +1, any channel with uncut commercial free movies is worth the price.

    I don’t think that’s fair. Just because I pay for HD Extra and someone else gets it for free doesn’t mean squat. DirecTV gives them the channels and if there’s a change to the HD Extra lineup it affects them. They should have every right to complain about or praise the channels provided them just like everybody else.

    Besides, if someone gets it for free, and unless they come right out and say so, how would you know? You wouldn’t and it’s really none of our business.

    If they were praising the HD Extra channels you wouldn’t care...I’m just sayin’ :grin:

    Hoosier205, I don't care if the package is worth the cost - that was not my point. If you enjoy some of the premium movie channels and pay for it that is your choice if you think it is worth the cost. I was saying that 90%+ of the new HD channels that was put up for the last many months have been in the "pay extra for the content" department.

    I love how you keep spinning the news from Directv, and you squash any other persons dislike about it as soon as they type their opinion here. Very sad.

    There's no solid evidence yet saying it'll be Shorts HD, it could be something else.

    I dunno, in this economy, who wants the hassle of a first born?

    I'm still blindly holding out hope!

    This is to confirm that the new HD channel is World Fishing Channel!

    There will be a lot of singing and dancing at my house on May 4th.

    And if it's ShortsHD, it's a channel they'd have to pay ME to ever watch. ;)

    Talk about another massive fail. 11 months of nothing and now ShortsHD? Sadly, I won't be surprised either given how things have gone recently...

    Yes that still works....did it last week when I realized I was going to be charged for it so I dropped the package and added it 30 seconds later and get three months free again. I've been with Directv (3rd tour of duty with them) since last June and haven't paid for the HD Extra pack yet.

    ...what are you even talking about? My post was not in response to you or anyone else. I didn't even quote anyone. I made a statement about my personal thoughts on the HD Extra package, HDNet Movies, and any additions to that package. :rolleyes: When I respond to you or to anyone else, I will quote that post in my response.
