    Last week it was done before Wednesday. I believe it was Monday and not Wednesday. The sooner the better.

    There were actually two launches last week. Monday was because Fox Business was starting that day. They put others up that day, too. But they also added FSN-MW and FSN-Pitt on the usual day, Wednesday.

    (Besides, given that Stuart is one of the mods that helps confirm the new channels, he may "know" something.)

    Keep 'em coming! Keep 'em coming. More is better for sure.

    (Seriously, there are about 5 - 7 more channels I'd like in HD, but after that we're nearing the point that I really don't care. Military Channel, Comedy Central and a few others as examples I'm still looking for.)

    Broken...
    The more I think about it, the more I wonder if the launch of Fox Busines Network was more a coincidence. I think D* had planned all along to launch the big 4th quarter push on the weekend of 10/13-14 to lead into the national offer launch on the 17th.

    D* started the week with the commercial blitz in all the NFL games, as well as in Sunday's primetime, followed it up by the Wall Street Journal ad flood on Monday and capping the week with a similar ad flood in USA Today on Friday.

    So who said D* was keeping mum on the HD launch? :lol:

    It just hit me that back in the days of TiVo skip, I would not have seen the commercial.

    I really like Slip better now that I've had it. I just with that 30 Second Slip was really 30 seconds not 34 seconds. Whoever set the delay needs to spend some time with the Count on Sesame Street.

    I like slip better, too. But because it is smoother. Seems more professional.

    Personally, I like the slip - once in a while there is a commerical that...

    Wait, what am I saying? Nevermind about commericals, but I do like the interface of the plus DVR's.
