I almost watched PPV yesterday.
These channels were almost launched yesterday.
This was almost good news for me.

Apologies to Bowling for Soup.

Why cant they just letterbox the HD feed to SD tvs.


You can watch HD channels on an SD TV just fine but if you don't have an HD receiver you can't receive them. If Directv replaces every SD Receiver and DVR with an HD model then they could drop SD and no one would care. It would cost too much to be feasible. My adult son uses an HD DVR with an old 4X3 SD TV and he actually prefers the HD feeds so it would work.

I thought for sure DirecTV would've added BBC HD the first day they could. Since Dish Network has it, I'm sure Charlie got the best deal available, so I'd think DirecTV would be able to get the same deal. Can't believe they still haven't added it. As soon as the do, all my season passes will be in HD.


Good luck with that channel. However, I’m not sure we’re getting it anytime soon. Anytime we have to ask “why not now”, it is usually not a good thing.

Tons of bandwidth = check
DISH Network has BBCHD = check
Plenty of time to negotiate carriage agreement= check
Plenty of time to “test” the channel = check
Plenty of time to “festivus” this channel = check
More PPVHD added before BBCHD = check

So we have to ask, “why not now”?

I hope you get your channel. Peace!

There's certainly truth to that first part....but its likely not the end of the story.

This thread will close on June 30 and a new one will open on July 1, of course.
Opinions expressed by me are my own and do not necessarily reflect

Can anyone give me a ballpark figure on how much PPV bring in to Directv monthly. Fifty million, ten million, one million, fifty thousand.
