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.

What was it that I wrote that was different than the message Stuart sent at the beginning of 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:


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.

I haven't had a chance to check... are there any new HD channels yet? ;)

"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.

I go along with all the nationals, but what I really want is my local public station's hd feed. D* is already wasting band width to broadcast 2 channels of the local, one is a sub-carrier with different programming then the main channel, and also the alternative broadcast channel so why not the hd? :confused: I have been reading alot of these threads concerning locals and have not seen any other city with 3 channels from the same public broadcaster.

There remain, of course, many imponderables (for customers, at any rate); some reside within DirecTV’s control, some without. For example:

With which providers has DirecTV successfully concluded negotiations for new HD programming? Will many highly-anticipated channels – yes, including Travel! – not be offered for several months after D12 becomes operational (SR noted it “will take some time” for all channels to appear)?

With which providers, beyond Comcast, has DirecTV failed to reach agreement?

Which smaller markets (including mine) now will receive HD LIL? When? How comprehensive will be the suite of local channels offered by DirecTV? Will it match or at least approach cable?

Will the FCC meeting on January 29, addressing in part the terrestrial loophole, ultimately translate into availability of CSN Philadelphia and other affected RSNs?

That Hutchinshouse guy is so repetitive. I really wish DIRECTV would add the channel just to shut him up.
