    December 17th was the date given months ago for Tennis HD... This coming Monday.

    I don't have any info though if they will keep to that launch date at this time.

    Let's now go down that off-topic path of mentioning a bogus, made-up "holiday" or feast.

    I disagree - holidays will affect the process of lit-up of new channels.
    And since there are different ancestor's employees, you must respect their religion and holidays.

    Except that he's misguided. Kwanzaa isn't a religious holiday and has nothing to do with any group's religion.

    Don't tie together my words - there was 'and'.

    Misused once, then used again, the latter use of which is moot anyway. Kwanzaa by definition isn't a holiday.

    Now, back to Festivus, or the HD discussion, or whatever we were discussing.

    And the customer service nightmare begins .....

    UHD, HDNet Movies, Smithsonian, MHD are all now in the HD Extra Package for $4.99 which you must sign up for if you wish to continue viewing these channels.

    See the thread below for more information:

    Thanks. I never really watched those channels much, so I am not too disappointed by this news.
