I sent D* an email and they replied with the same old standard response... My service agrement ends this summer (June I think). This is just another thing that makes me want to switch to Dish. No WGN HD, No HD only packages, NFL ST keeps going way up. I would rather pay less and get the same channels I want in HD and I could definetly save by not having NFL ST. I'd rather go to a bar at some point to watch the games...
WGN is a big sports channel if you like baseball, the Bulls, White Sox or Cubs. It's a shame D* isn't getting this channel anytime soon. Negotiations shouldn't take this long, and according to WGN's email respnse D* isn't even communicating with WGN.
I sent them this e-mail and I'm sure I will get the canned response back but hopefully someone will actually at least read the e-mail and send it to the "right" person.
"If Directv proclaims itself to be the "Leader in Sports Programming" for Satellite television then why don't you have WGN America HD available to your customers? The "other" Satellite company offers this station by the way.
There are millions of sports fans that don't live in the Chicago "local" area who would love to be able to watch the various games in the best picture quality available.
With Baseball season starting in a week there will be over 90 games that are available in HD that we will not be able to see.
Not only do we not get the HD feed the Standard Definition feed is one of the worst on Directv. Can we at least get that picture quality better somehow?
Thanks for reading my request and please add WGN America HD to your program line-up as quickly as possible."
