Uh. Spaceway buddy.
Directv is still using the 200 channel capacity ads in newspapers, I received a flyer in yesterdays paper
Some of those ads are older contracts that haven't changed, and some are from dealers (although you wouldn't know it without looking at the fine print.)
Swanni's source is the CSR who fielded his call. :lol:
You probably could have said that a little nicer.
Although, it only says capacity of 200 if the grey fine print at the end of the page so it's perfectly reasonable how someone might have missed that...I'm just sayin'
There is a reading and comprehension problem in America. One can only hope an occasional shout will get through.
Buddy? Just a bit condescending, eh? Look a few posts above this one and you will see where I acknowledged my mistake. Okay, pal?
Just buddy. If I wanted to be condescending I'd have used another term.
Please take personal discussions to private messaging, ok?
Micro's point was that the press release says both, 160 channels and 200 capacity. There is the text you are reading in the main part that says 160 channels. But the about DirecTv portions says capacity. Every press release I have ever read has both parts. The body and the about.
All indications are that D12 has the exact national capacity that they expected.
Just taking some time ...
Why don't we all just get some Long John Silvers and talk about this in an amicable manner?
Latest public information to SEC on 4/16 was "..when our DIRECTV 12 satellite is put into service in the second quarter of 2010, we expect to have the capacity to broadcast approximately 200 national HD channels to nearly all U.S. television households. As part of this rollout, we plan on offering local channels in HD to 19 additional markets, bringing the total number of HD local channel
markets to 157—covering over 95% of television homes.." Nothing has changed.
i think i may be a little sad when the next TLE is halfway to 103 since ive been eagerly awaiting the start of the drift and if its half way there its like missing the puch line of a joke or the climax of a movie... So needless to say im torn on the matter cause i want it to have started because im impatient, but still want to see it start. oh well you cant have your cake and eat it too.
It's noon somewhere....
Did you even read my post?
Swanni can't even read a press release correctly
From DirecTV's press release-EL SEGUNDO, Calif., April 20, 2010— DIRECTV, the world's most popular video service, continues to deliver more full time HD channels than any other television provider in the nation with the addition of over 30 new HD channels. These new channels will begin rolling out in May and will continue in the following few months bringing DIRECTV's total HD channel lineup to more than 160.
It clearly says in the press release that there will be more then 30 channels.
Like I said.
Runs rampant these days.
I'm going to agree with James.
I would save some, and depending on what DirecTV adds this Summer (beyond what we already know), that number may grow or shrink, but I wouldn't save a lot.
Aside from the additional Encore channels coming later this year, I don't expect a lot of additional HD channels coming to market, so DirecTV would be wise to offer as many of the currently available channels as possible.
