    It's all good...HD that is. :D

    Some day it won't be SD or HD it will be just TV again. Back when we watched TV and it was just TV. When you got 12 stations with nothing more than rabbit ears, and you were happy to have them.

    That's what it will be like soon. No SD vs HD....just TV.

    Until then, bring on the new HD. :D

    do you get NHL Network? 2 years ago they had both games on Sat night in HD, now just the pregame and the first game, the second game usually airs on Sunday pm although they also show the score in the crawl!!!!!!!!!

    ... and you had to walk (barefoot) 12 miles in the snow just to get to a house that had a TV... because all you had were shadow puppets... and they were ANGRY shadow puppets that got belligerent and did nothing but insult the clothes you were wearing...

    Sorry... I was just reminded of an old Adam Sandler character from Saturday Night Live.

    Dude... growing up, I couldn't even get 12 stations with an outdoor antenna that looked like a spaceship had landed on the roof... I certainly got a lot less than 12 with rabbit ears.

    That being said, I agree. I'll be glad when channels are just channels again...

    This is my treasure. FSC and to a lesser extent ESPNU were the only channels that I even cared about when the new satellite launched.

    Now hopefully the AMC and BBC people will get their channels.

    ESPNU was the last non premium "gripe/whine" channel for me.

    For the record, I don't know what the channel or channels will be but I'm hoping for AMCHD.

    The announced one for August is GOL TV ...
    Unless the new HD is PPV channel 135 that's the one that is left.

    If it isn't GOL TV next week that means an announced promised channel will be delayed at least another week.

    Satelliteracer says Fox Soccer Channel HD on the 11th.

    While I expect to see GolTV next week, technically, the channel wouldn't be delayed until September. ;)

    My personal preference would be either DIY or AMC (Rubicon starts this Sunday - never seen Mad Men).

    What packages are GolTV and the Fox soccer channels in?

    That would be a very nice addition.

    (or BBCAHD)

    I would be satisfied if they would just add the rest of the Cinemax channels. And AMC HD.
