    Hmm, maybe but Wikipedia isn't exactly authoritative. There are others I would much rather see added.

    Travel HD, PLEASE!!!

    Dish has had it for a long time now, you would think Directv would want to compete with that (hint hint, :p )

    I checked that site and the citation used. They just quote the comcastnetworks site. The comcastnetworks site has nothing about directv picking those stations up at this time and only list the fact those channels are being launced on that date.

    This will be the first time I can look at new HD Channels and shrug.

    Especially when ESPNU-HD is floating out there somewhere, waiting to be placed on a tier...

    But I am happy that people that want these channels get to watch them (if this is confirmed).

    If by some miracle this info is accurate, YAWN....... None of these 3 channels will make it to my custom list. Just 3 more channels to block.

    Here is the page he was refering to
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_DirecTV_channels
    Here is the source they reference on wikipedia that they claim says that directv is picking them up.
    http://www.comcastnetworks.com/

    Wow! I to shrug @ those too...if indeed this is true. Those are some dogs. Travel, Military, Amc or Encore would be far more welcome.

    New National Channels for DTV should have known it was a mistake just by the title.

    The first post is all that we needed to know that it wasn't true. The fact it didn't come from someone at directv or from a release mentioning the fact that directv was going to pick it up should have been a sign that all we ended up with was another thread about what hd channels people would like to see added to directv. Here is another example of this type of speculation. http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?t=99546

    According to satelliteguys, Neal Tiles, G4tv president, said they were going HD on the 8th. There is no mention of Directv.

    Being that the source has quoted a statement by Comcast which made no reference to DirecTV, i see no further need to continue its discussion. I am closing the thread.
