All good things come to those who wait. In the mean time we'll just enjoy our 160+ HD channels! :lol:


I almost missed what the troll said, I was busy enjoying MLB Extra Innings, ABCFamilyHD, ESPNNewsHD, ESPNU HD, & a few others. :lol:

Maybe DirecTV and the content providers need to brush up on their tango skills, here's a place to start http://www.tangoclasses.com/

See post My Setup for configuration info.

$50 says you can't list your 200+ HD channels in its own thread.

I'm referring to more than just the one post.

Please everyone ... take a breath.


OK...

In that case, I whole-heartedly agree with you. :)

I don't think Satelliteracer is "hiding." I think he has a job to do, hopefully one that includes trying out some new tactics to get us those few last channels we all want.


AMEN!!

I still think it was funny though... :D

You must watch a lot of PPV! ;):P:D

Not everybody cares about Sunday Ticket...

For the record, I didn't mean anything negative towards Sigma1914...

~Alan


I didn't either. It's towards anyone who takes the mentality "I'm happy, and so should you be"

Once again, I'me very happy with Directv service. I dislike the fact they can't seem to get AMC and BBC worked out.

Who is proud of his "ONE" PPV purchase during the last ten years though...

I wouldn't enjoy Sunday Ticket if I had it for free. :D
(But there are 15 basic cable channels that could be named.)

domingos35 (and other DISH subs), DirecTV subs can handle the disappointment without help.
Let's move along ...

Yes, please keep your minions in order unless they'd rather be reminded of their provider's inadequacies. (see my sig and avatar for more details)

Though somewhat entertaining, I've never understood the need to "whip out the measuring sticks" in regards to satellite providers.

Though disappointed with their HD Channel Lineup, I'm (overall) happy with DirecTV. I also know (a TON) of people who are (overall) happy with their Dish Network service. Different strokes for different folks...

I am admittedly getting tired of DirecTV not correcting two MAJOR issues with my local channels....
