i have the latino package and i noticed that all of the telefutura channels that are not HD have the HD logo in the right bottom corner since about 2 days ago...i did not see these last week.

Galavision still does not have the logo....but i think it does have an HD feed.
Could it be all of the TF channels will go HD soon?

This quarter has made one thing clear: if you aren't a sports fan, Directv has effectively written you off.

They no longer market themselves as the HD leader. They've given up on that. Directv has more sports, and that's what they trumpet in their latest commercials. If you want to watch Mad Men or Dr. Who in high def, Directv does not value your business.

Judging from the way DISH pulled a dozen or so RSNs off their lineup during contract dispute with Fox, if you are a sports fan, apparently DISH doesn't care about you!

Not just RSNs according to Deadline FX and NatGeo also vanished with MyNetwork's contract due on Nov 1st
