Usually the channels. DirecTV has plenty of HD on demand, so it is not their limitation. There may be a limitation in the linkage from source to DirecTV but not within DirecTV itself.

Considering the relationship between DirecTV and Liberty Media, I'm shocked and disappointed that Starz doesn't offer any HD content via DOD.

When you consider the number of HD channels and the amount of HD content available on demand, Showtime has set a very nice standard. They are making the other premiums (mainly HBO and Cinemax) look like a rip-off. Keep up the good work Showtime.

I'm liking Showtime on Demandquite a bit too. I need to try to figure out whether to keep Starz or Showtime at the end of the promotion period
