    He meant vagueness, not vagary.

    Keep in mind this is all hearsay so get out your salt shakers.

    I talked to a CSR yesterday and asked about Travel Channel HD being in the March entertainment guide.

    He went and look something up and said he didn't see anything.

    He also said that marketing usually knows before he would.

    All we can take from this is that he saw nothing to indicate it is coming.

    However, the fact that marketing would know first (not sure why that would be but any way) could explain why it in the March entertainment guide.

    BTW, I guess there are no Star Trek fans reading this thread. :rolleyes:

    Well maybe if D* would announce something in a press release all these rumors, speculation and hearsay would be laid to rest. Of course, we all know thats not going to happen. ;)

    I have been seeing Travel HD in the HD highlights for at least 6 months so I wouldn't read too much into it. I hope it happens but I am not using this as a expectation that it is coming.

    Now that's the kind info I was looking for.

    The March guide wasn't unique.

    The HBO statement was made in early June of 2007 and was that HBO and Max channels would start showing up in September 2007.

    Here's a link: http://investor.directv.com/releasedetail.cfm?ReleaseID=286351


    I caution that press releases that quote Derek Chang seem to have a pretty poor track record of being fully realized.

    I've been out of the loop for quite a long time. Are there any new HD national channels coming soon?

    That would be nice. It will never happen! The only time you'll see a press release is when there's a rate increase. I bet DIRECTV hits that mark to the second. :D

    Pushing 14 months since release, still no Travel Channel HD. :nono: :nono2:

    Lots of FUD in this thread with no sources to back most of it up.

    Any talk of a channel coming or not coming to DIRECTV is purely speculation up until the time someone who works for DIRECTV is in a position to tell us it's coming (or the channel gets turned on).
