Please use this thread to discuss your feelings about upcoming national HD channels.

This thread will not be as tightly moderated as the rest of the site, but here's the tradeoff... in exchange for your being able to rant a bit more, you can be assured that absolutely no one at DIRECTV will be using this thread for reference.

You can ask for new HD all you want, but DIRECTV's marketing department knows that the 100-150 contributors to this thread are only a small part of the 18,000,000 total subscribers.

Please remember that all forum rules are still in effect, and please do not "bump" this thread.

Well I would love to see my locals in the mix! (Roch, MN) But I'll take Travel and ID (285) in HD, that's all I need for now. Happy TwentyTen all.

ESPNU has already been announced.

I'm guessing Travel, BBCA, WGN and some movie channels to make people want to subscribe to them some more will be the first ones to roll out.

Id be happy to see ESPNU, BBCA and Encore HD. Dont know if IFC is HD or not yet, but if so, that would be nice. But you KNOW the first one is gonna be HSN HD followed closely by CBN HD. Also like to see MTV Hits whether HD or SD. They need a music video channel that actually PLAYS music videos. FUSE HD would be cool, if its available.

Happy New Year everyone. I hope DirecTV adds as many HD channels as they can once Sunday Ticket is over, and they know D12 will be operational.

Does anyone think we'll see some new HD channels next Wednesday (1/6/2010) since Sunday ticket will be over with? Or should we have seen some signs by now if that was going to happen? Maybe they need to hold those spots for the Olympics first then add new stuff afterward?

Of course this assumes they are willing to add anything at all before D12 is totally up and running (seems like everything is going pretty well with it so far though).

The Travel Channel & BBC America. Based on absolutely nothing I think these and others will be avaliable when D12 is up and running.

I think this thread is gonna take on a more interesting flow now that D12 is flying. :D

Since it costs 2.4¢ to produce a penny, my 2¢ worth is really 4.8¢ worth.  That 4.8¢ is my own and not the 4.8¢ of DIRECTV, Dish, or anyone else for that matter.

I hope to see The Travel Channel in HD by Q2 of 2010 along with the The Underwater Basket Weaving Channel in HD as well.

There I said it and got it out of the way.

Fox Soccer is supposed to go HD today. My bet is if anythng will be added before D-12, it will be that.

As for the rest... they have been available for a while and continue not to be added.
