    I am thrilled with all the new HD channels. Thanks to everyone at DBSTalk & D* for all the hard work that brought us all this glorious HD.

    Of course we all want more HD and we want it yesterday. But let's just all be grateful for these new HD channels today. Remember just yesterday we were thrilled with only 2 test HD channels.

    I LOVE THE NEW HD

    I am disappointed that the first round of channels contained so many $ premiums. We already had similar ones with HBOHD ad SHOHD. Would have been nice to test the system on more package channels.IMHO

    I, for one, would rather have stretch-o-vision than black sidebars. Just a personal preference, I guess, and less chance for burn-in on my plasma TV. Of course I would prefer all 16:9 HD content.

    I just wish they would show programs in HD that were originally made in HD. You hear me A&E?? WTF is up with 24 in stretch-o-vision???!?!?!

    Please - NO stretch-o-vision. If you want to stretch the picture make your TV do it (it has options to do so) - or buy technology you don't have to worry about burn in's with. Very big fact that there will be a lot of SD converted programming for several years to come. Deliver the picture to me as it was shot and I'll decide what I want my equipment to do with it.

    We are among the local folks that get NESN HD because we are in the local market. It is just being spotbeamed, noone outside of eastern MA would be getting it.

    My daughter and I were watching the movie "Doogal" on Starz HD and it looked great! Animated movies always look good in HD! She didn't want to go to school this morning and I almost called in sick myself! LOL---but here I am, I have to make $$ to keep my satellite on! LOL

    So is "ddpoohndave". That is why I responded to him that I think it should be available to him too.

    They have to save something for October. Personally, I can't wait for Food Network. Once my wife sees Paula, Emeril, Bobby, and Duff in high def, she'll let me scrap her 4x3 tube TV and upgrade to another HDTV.

    I thought the same thing. There is quite a long pause. But then I think surfing any of the channels is slow. The new ones just seem slower. Oh well at least there is more to see.

    Does anyone have an idea when Titan TV Guide will be changing its guide to include the new HD channels?
