    I think it is great that they outright challenge Dish to provide a list of their full-time HD channels.

    As happy as I am to see new HD being announced, my happiness was tempered when I saw BBC America missing from the list. I'll deal with it, though, it's just good to see things picking up.

    The key word in the press release is "begin" rolling out channels in May. That could be as few as 2 Directv Cinema channels and still be a truthful press release.

    Taking the lead, keeping the lead, really being in the lead - any way you look at it (with no fuzzy math like Dish uses in their counts). Nice work!

    That makes a very nice dent into the top preferred new HD channels list. :D

    FESTIVUS TIME approaches in May.

    :lol: They announced 30 new HD channels. That means they have carriage agreements and the intent to launch them... can we celebrate that before we get into how they'll still manage to disappoint us? :grin:
