Haha...a CSR just told me that DirecTV hasn't added any new HD recently because the companies who own those channels don't want them to be on DirecTV. I said...all of them? She said yes. Mental midgets.

She then told me that channels like MSNBC HD can only be with so many providers at one time. So, DirecTV has to wait for their agreements with another provider to expire before they are allowed to come to DirecTV. What the...


Why even ask? Are you that bored?
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

Maybe theyre holding some kind of intra-office competition and the CSR that tells the wildest and most hilarious lie gets a free pork roast or something.

I'm watching the opening ceremony put on thus far by Vancouver. So...yes. Let's hope it gets better.

Their handling of this entire fiasco has certainly caused me to lose some optimism regarding additional HD offerings with D12.


Don't lose faith....good stuff coming in HD not that far down the road. In fact, the road may have just been shortened. ;)

I look forward to any good news. Just don't come in here telling us we are getting MSNBC HD the day after the Olympics end...that would not be pretty. :D

As you know I have been quite vocal on the Olympic handling by DirecTV and rightfully so.. they have lied to everyone. That being said, I joined DirecTV a few months ago knowing what was coming for D12 and the fact that DTV has better programming packages such as ESPNU in the base package (have to have the high package for that on Dish). And MLB Network (which was the ultimate deciding factor).

After seeing this mishandling of the HD Olympic coverage, I too am losing faith in what to expect. But I will trust your word on this.

There will be a festivus, probably several of them.....(what is the plural of festivus?)

Hang in there guys, I know you've been patient but good things ahead in the not too distant future (no, cannot elaborate on that only to say the timing has improved a bit).

When I see Satelliteracer post, it reminds me of an old TV commercial.

I joined about 2 years ago over going comcast that had less HD in Chicago land over (the city of Chicago comcast systems) and there DRV sucked back then 20 hours HD no way and be the time the des plaines,mount prospect,park ridge,prospect heights. super head kills off most of the analog and add's HD Direct D-12 will be live.

and DIRECT TV HAVING THE HD AND SD WITH THE SAME NUMBER IS A BIG PLUS!!!
I want CLTV / CLTV HD on direct tv.

Can you answer this though, will we see anything before D12?

Thanks, I think you've brought some of our blood pressures down a bit. :D
