    Winters,...
    I'm baffled as to why it'd make any difference to anyone. Can you help me understand why this is an issue?

    Yep, it got moved, it was mentioned in the HD anticipation thread. If you don't like seeing it in the guide there, it can be hidden.

    playboy might have asked for that number in exchange for some money. directv clearly knew that some costumers would complain, but that extra $ could be worth it for them

    the hd addition and the channel rearrangement could be product of a contract renewal between them

    It is odd going between Sundance and IFC. But at least we can customize.

    I use my favorite to hide channels I don't use. So visibility is not a problem for me.

    But I use Boolean to record movies/shows between a channel span. Now with smut channels in the channel range of my Boolean, they will also be recorded.

    That sucks!

    It's part of the new contract, Playboy wants to be more like a premium channel and less like an adult PPV channel. You still need to subscribe to it though, it's not going to be part of any base packages like Premiere. We also got Playboy HD, Playboy On Demand and TEN XTSY was replaced with Playboy's sister station BangU (the former Spice 2/Shorteez).

    As others said, if you're worried about your kids, you should be using parental controls to hide the adult channels. (Stuff that's on HBO and Cinemax overnight is way more explicit than anything Playboy TV has aired in recent years anyway). If it simply offends you, remember DirecTV caters to a national audience with different viewing habbits and others might be offended by the content on the channels you like. That's what custom channel lists are for.

    If you don't like it you have options at your disposal. You can hide it by using the Favorite Channels list, block it by using Parental Controls, or simply ignore it. I fail to see why this is a big issue for some people.

    It will record stuff from a channel you don't get?

    Would nnot adult work?

    I looked at the guide for this HD channel and I did not see any of the programming that had the "HD" after the title. From that I assume that they don't have the HD programs ready at this time.

    Or the guide data just doesn't have the data yet. There's one way you can find out for sure...

    I had that channel long ago. It is too much money for the same thing over and over and over. Unless they have changed, way too much Silicone. Heck, years ago it was $16.99 per month. I think I had it for 2 months and had it turned off.

    I saw on the other forum that it is, indeed HD. The sub there claimed it looked great.

    You've been away way too long, pilgrim. Playboy was largely taken over by Spice several years ago and it not the channel you remember. It has been a "level 1" adult channel for some time now.

    I find it interesting that DIRECTV has adopted adult programming in a big way as they used to only offer Playboy on a monthly basis.

    That happens with any channel after they've just gone HD. The guide data can't say HD until the channel goes HD and then it takes a day or so.

    I use favorites lists so I don't have it in my guide. Just for kicks I typed it in and it says it exceeds my purchase limit of $0.00. I set a purchase limit to prevent accidental purchases. Interesting it treats it like a PPV channel still by saying that, vs displaying the call click or text to order screen.
