I want all the movie channels in HD, I'm a movie buff. Bring back Versus, add Travel Channel and I'll be happy.

Ottumwa, Ia/Kirksville, Mo and Hannibal, Mo/Quincy, Ill locals in some form. HD would be great but having some in any form would be something.

PBS in some form of HD.
Versus
ESPNU
Any movie channel in HD we don't have

Also (and I'm sure it's been discussed) why do we have no stations from Canada such as TSN? We have every Spanish channel and many other foreign offerings.

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.


LOL and good grief on your dismissiveness of posters opinions and requests in this thread. Well at least your honest in telling potential posters that posting in this thread is an exercise in futility as no one at DirecTV cares about what is said in this thread. Primal scream therapy then maybe?

TALK TO THE HAND! :rolleyes:

I would like to see Travel Channel. That is the one channel I miss from when I was with TWC.

I think you're confused. The mods don't represent or work for DirecTV; Stuart is just trying to set the expectation (as he's done for the year+ this thread has been recycled and regurgitated) that posters who expect decision-makers at DirecTV to be using this thread as their free marketing focus group will be disappointed. Review the history of these threads and you'll understand why. Calm down and talk to your own hand.

I'm plenty calm, you probably need to work calming down yourself though. I think I represented Stuart's statement at the beginning of the thread accurately and understood his position perfectly. I actually appreciated the fact that he set the tone that no one at DirecTV will be reading or referencing this thread so our "rants" are for our own enjoyment only.

What was it that I wrote that was different than the message Stuart sent at the beginning of this thread?

Stuart Sweet said that DIRECTV12 has the capacity for 80 HD channels.

Hopefully DIRECTV can realize this prediction.

Fox Soccer Channel HD appears to be available to commercial customers now but still no ETA (from DirecTV's side) on its availability for the regular customer... according to a Fox Soccer rep it was supposed to be today but that may have been only for bars & restaurants, it looks like.

Sorry if I misinterpreted your post but it surely sounded like you were rebuking Stuart. My apologies if I was wrong, but the parts I highlighted above were where I clearly misunderstood your apparent intent.

The ALL CAPS and ":rolleyes:" probably didn't help your tone either.

"Soon". :sure: ;).

I wonder if we'll get a few when NFLST is over?

My wish: I want every available channel in HD and I want them now! :D

My response was consistent with the message Stuart opened the thread with. Which was a message that any ideas or criticisms presented by a poster will be dismissed, actually probably never read, by DirecTV. The "talk to the hand" was illustrative of how much DirecTV cares about what is written in this particular thread. Sorry that my use of caps and emoticons is so disturbing to you.

I would like to have Amarillo locals (HD or SD, I'd take either). Also BBC America.

There are still people who get no locals, that would rather have them than more new national channels. I know it's only 5% of the country without locals, but when you are a member of that 5% it is important.
