    look down at the ppv list for d*, 27 now, 36 this summer (so only 9 more ppv channels going to be added after d10 is fixed) so that's what? 71 available hd channels coming (though some for the 3d, etc.) not to shabby man :)

    No, it means that 9 out of 30 will be DirecTV Cinema, not 9 out of 80.

    Good get!

    While two of them were on my list of most wanted channels, I'm not that excited by the list. Maybe round two of Festivus will excite me more! :)

    I just noticed the picture on the right side of some Dish event in LA, where "they couldn't give their TV service away." Wow! DirecTV isn't pulling their punches anymore, Dish must have really pissed them off with their 200 HD claim.

    The list is an ok list. List like this one are always out of date, as both sides keep adding.
    I do find it strange though, that 24 of the Direct Channels, in the Directs count of fulltime channels are actually future channels, and thats on top of the 5 that Direct will be launching next week.

    Its also why I prefer and direct people to the list over at AVS, as its usually more accurate, and doesn't count as active a forcasted channel, from any carrier, they list a forcasted channel, as forcasted, and keep it a different color until its actually a watchable channel.

    No, it was your idea, a good idea.

    I just took my post#19 and updated with your idea.

    Have also updated the official poll results thread.

    Thanks again.

    Isn't the Hallmark Movie Channel HD going in the HD Extra Pack? Would that be premium or still general? I thought Satelliteracer hinted at that in this thread when the list of 30 HD channels were released.

    Shouldn't Hallmark Movie Channel be listed as a premium since SatelliteRacer has stated that it will be added to the HD Extra Pack?

    Edit/
    Oops, too slow.

    Telefutura is listed as "Premium" ... is it available without the Spanish package or is that the premium part of the price?
